Welcome Hashers!

We are a drinking club with a running problem. Hashing is a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work; a refreshing break from the nine-to-five routine. Hashing is an exhilarating fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of Harriers and Harriettes chase hares on 2-5 mile-long trails through the city of Belmopan, the mosquito filled swamps and the jaguar filled bush all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times.

We make an effort to enable groups of mixed ability runners to run together by following a trail set by one of our number, a trail confused by lots of false trails so that the faster hounds or front runners get lost and give the rest of the running pack time to catch up. When the real trail is found the call of ON – ON must go up so the stragglers know which way to go. There are no rules but it is generally accepted that there is no competition in Hashing and racing is a heinous crime punishable in the obvious way. Short cutting is tolerated but only if you are not spotted!
