Chicago Hash House Harriers

Welcome to ChicagoHash.com, home of the Chicago Hash House Harriers. Here you will find everything you need to take part in the Chicago chapter of the world’s largest “drinking club with a running problem.” We meet every week of the year to run a 3 to 5 mile trail through the great city of Chicago’s streets, alleys, parks, and forest preserves. Afterwards we conduct an entertaining ceremony known as “the circle” where we enjoy cold beer and some good laughs.

We’re a very social group. Our members come from all walks of life, all age groups (21+) and all abilities of running from slow to fast. Our one and only goal is to have fun!

Look below for details on our upcoming runs or click on the links to the left to discover all kinds of info — past, present and future — about the Chicago Hash.

Welcome and On-On!

Venue: Party Central Sky Deck – 933 W. Wolfram St.
Hares: It’s Too Soft
Hash Cash: $10
Event: Saturday run

From the hare: Summer 2018 is rapidly coming to a close so let’s end it with a bang! This is first and foremost an urban rooftop BBQ party, thinly disguised as a hash. There will be trail through Chicago’s historic Green Zone followed by an on-in with more beer than you can shake a stick at the usual epic food spread for just the usual ten bucks hash cash. There may be Malort. There may be drinking games. There may be ice in a kiddie pool in circle.

You might not want to make plans for doing anything other than crashing after this Summer wipeout and good thing most people don’t have to go to work on Sunday. Celebrate outdoors while it’s still Summer!!!
