What is hashing?

Although the verb “to hash” means to chop into small pieces, that isn’t what we are talking about here.  When we talk about hashing we are talking about running.  Or jogging.  Or being social while wearing running shoes.  Hashing is a recreational activity done with friends and has been called a “drinking club with a running problem”.  The whole concept is well explained here.

At a typical hash you will meet new people, explore new places, sing songs and drink beer. Oh, and someone might make fun of you.  But fear not! As explained by the Coeur d’Alene Hash House Harriers, we are an irreverent group but do not discriminate in any way. We welcome you regardless of race, colour, creed, religion, sexual orientation, political affiliation or any other defining trait. We make fun of all equally. If you have no sense of humour or thin skin you may be offended because we will offend everyone sometimes as we use coarse language, sing bawdy songs, drink, sometimes encourage debauchery and otherwise lewd behaviour.

It’s easy to get involved.  Just show up at our next run.  Check the Hareline for details.
