The South Hams Hash House Harriers (SH4) run every Wednesday rain or shine, daylight or pitch black, every week of the year. We meet at 7:30pm, normally at a South Hams pub. New members and visitors are always welcome. We are a very social running group – the oft quoted description of Hashes as “Clubs for Drinkers with a Running Problem” certainly applies to us.
The idea of Hashing is that the pack follow a (normally) pre-laid route over as much off road trail as possible. If there’s mud and water involved, so much the better. A good Hash will have different routes (splits) to allow Hashers of differing speeds to reach the end at a similar time so it’s quite an inclusive activity.
SH4 caters for everyone, from young children to octogenarians and anyone from fast walkers to dedicated runners. There is always at least one “long/short split” where less athletic Hashers can take the “short” option and the more athletic can “go long”.
If you’d like to join us, just turn up – see our Events Calendar for where to go. Your first run is free. After that it’s £1 a run, £10 a quarter or £35 a calendar year.
In addition to Wednesday nights, the South Hams Hash enjoys a regular social scene including weekend events and irregular informal cycle rides under the POSH (Pedalbashers Of South Hams) banner.
