Oxford Hash House Harriers
About Oxford H3 and Hashing
Oxford Hash House Harriers are a sociable running club and just one of the many hundreds of Hash chapters running around the world. We run every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. on a hash trail somewhere in Oxford or the neighbouring area. Our runs usually start from a pub or occasionally a car park in the countryside.
The trail is laid in flour by the "hare" before the run and has check points with false trails, and short-cuts, that allow slower runners and walkers to catch up with the faster runners. A run is typically 4 to 5 miles long and takes about an hour.
We run mainly in towns during the winter months and out in the glorious Oxfordshire countryside during the summer. We are a very diverse group of various levels of fitness from members of Headington Road Runners and Thames Valley Orienteering Club, to people whose only weekly exercise may be a slow jog around the hash.
After the run we have a circle where food and drink is served as well as some entertainment, before we decamp to a local pub.
Newcomers and visitors are always welcome: just turn up at one of our forthcoming hashes, listed below.
A more detailed explanation of hashing can be found on the "About Us" page. Dogs are welcome but should be kept under control and are the responsibility of their owners.
