The pack in pursuit

West London Hash House Harriers

Hashing every Thursday. Meet at the Pub beforehand – Run leaves at 7:15pm

The Hash House Harriers are an international network of running and socializing clubs based around the traditional English sport of Hare and Hounds, also known as a paper chase. The pack of runners pursue a trail that has been laid in advance, using chalk or flour, by the Hare.

West London Hash is a highly inclusive group with a diverse and cosmopolitan following. All are very welcome to join in, whether they are visiting Hashers from abroad or people who have never Hashed before. Just turn up on the night in running shoes and make yourself known or drop us a line in advance so we can look out for you. You will recognize the Hashers by their bright and distinctive running gear. A sense of humour and a willingness to mix and socialize are a lot more important than running ability.

West London Hash House Harriers (WLH3) meet all year round every Thursday. Runs start at 7.15pm and we meet at 7pm in a pub within walking distance of a tube or mainline station anywhere between Central London and West London.

A trail of chalked Ps will lead from the station to the pub. The run will start from the pub and also finish there. Arrangements will have been made with the pub for the storage of the runners’ bags for the duration of the run.

The runs are four or five miles in length and last about an hour. Hash trails consist of short cuts, loops and false trails to ensure that runners of all standards can get involved and will stay more or less together as a pack. After the run the pack spends the rest of the evening back at the pub in intensive recuperation.

A nominal membership fee of only £2 per run is collected after the run, or regular Hashers can opt to pay £35 per year membership instead.
