Hashing every Thursday. Meet at the Pub beforehand – Runs normally start 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.

A Drink stop at West London H3West 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, or, if you wish, drop us a line in advance and we will 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. Normally we meet at 7pm in a pub within walking distance of a tube or mainline station, anywhere between Central London and The West London suburbs. Our runs start at 7.15pm.

A trail of chalked Ps will lead from the station to the pub. The run normally start from the pub and also finish there, but during the current Covid crisis there may some variation to these arrangements, check the instructions for each 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 together as a pack. After the run the pack spends the rest of the evening back at the pub in intensive recuperation.

2000th Run Festival

As many of you will be aware, this year West London Hash will be celebrating its 2000th trail.  To mark this occasion, your committee and helpers have organised a grand programme of events spanning 4 days at the beginning of August. We will let you know more details over the next few weeks as arrangements are finalised, but for now please put these dates in your diaries:

Apart from the away-day on 3rd August, all other events will be free to WLH members. We will however be asking you to register in advance so that the organisers of each event can make the necessary catering arrangements. A registration form will be sent out about one month before the events. We also hope to be able to have a 2000th run T-shirt for sale to mark the occasion, which you will be able to pre-order on the rgistration form.

2000 runs memorabilia appeal

As you should all know by now, we will be celebrating WLH’s 2000th run on 1 August this year. To mark the occasion, we will be putting together an album of historic WLH photos, charting the progress of West London hashers over the last 40 years or so. We already have quite a comprehensive archive on the WLH website, which goes back to around 2016. We also have a few photos salvaged from the old westlondonhash.org website, dating back to about 2006, which will be loaded on to the current website in due course. Before that, nothing. That is where you come in. Many you will have old photos, digital or hard copy, recording the exploits of you and your fellow hashers all the way back to run 0001 on 3rd March 1986.

If you have any old photos or other memorabilia such as run sign-on sheets, etc, that you are happy to share with WLH, please send them to wlhashflash@gmail.com, ideally as a link to where you have them saved in the cloud, or failing that, as an e-mail attachment.
We will be using the resulting photo archive to:

  • create an on-line 2000th celebration photo album on the WLH website
  • generate a photo “slide show” video for background viewing at the 2000 run event
  • provide the content for a special edition hard copy 2000th run memento photo book (at cost)

Thanks, and On On
