NHH3 Run 116 — HIG’s Return

Hey wankers! Come on out for a fun trail next Saturday. Scenic, little shiggy, and at least half is downhill!

WHEN: 1/26/13 1 p.m. <——– NOTE THIS STARTS AT 1 P.M.
WHERE: 29 Main St., Hamden, CT.  Parking lot for West Rock Park at Wintergreen Lake
WHAT: 3-4 mile trail, not stroller friendly, dog friendly on leashes, beer check, A-A,
HARE: Hi, I’m Gay.

Hash cash is $5, and I’ll have some snacks and good beer at the end, and probably some form of hot alcoholic beverage. If they allowed campfires I would have one, but they don’t.

Come out and get your fix because HASHMAT is only a month away!

Subject: Good afternoon!

I came across your running club’s information and wanted to reach out to you to see if you think any of your runners may be interested in some of our reflective products. I would be glad to talk to you about the different products we have to offer. You can check out our website at I would love to send you a catalog, if you could provide me with an address. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you! I hope to hear from you soon!

Re: Good Afternoon!

Hi, Danielle. Thanks for writing.

I think you may have fallen prey to some common misconceptions about our organization, the Hash House Harriers, and hashing in general.

We are not a r*nning club. We are a drinking club. Some of us have a r*nning problem. (See? We don’t even like to use that word!)

I have no doubt that your company’s excellent product line can significantly enhance r*unning safety. If we had any sense, we’d probably give serious thought to using your products. But we don’t have any sense. Quite frankly, if safety were at all a concern for us, we probably wouldn’t lube up with beer and hard liquor and then go chasing each other through the busy urban streets of New Haven, singing blasphemous and filthy songs in earshot of local churches and schools.

That said, if your company is interested in our business, it could probably find a market for reflective versions of the following items:
* mugs
* kilts
* red dresses
* beer
* codpieces
* nipple pasties
* blow-up dolls
* condoms
* Viagara

If your company is interested in providing any of these items, please staple your catalog to a case of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey, and send it to the New Haven Hash House Harriers, care of Blowing You Softly, and we’ll get back to you when we sober up.

  • Saturday, February 23: The main event starts from the Anchor Bar, 272 College Street, New Haven, CT. Trail will be A-A, turkey/eagle split, beer check, 3-5 miles.

Friday and Sunday are a la carte and details will be announced later.

1/26 NHH3 Hash: HIG Returns (and Hashmat update)

Brian's Knobby KneesHey Wankers!

Did you miss me? I didn’t think so. I’ve recovered from my knee meniscus repair surgery and am ready to lay shitty shitty trail again. Of course, I haven’t tried r*nning on the knee yet, so setting trail may be interesting!

The next NH4 hash is set for 1/26/13 at 1PM (it gets dark fast!). Details will be forthcumming soon, but you can bet trail will be 3-5 miles, A-A with a beer check, $5 hash cash, and within a 20 minute drive of New Haven.

Also of note,


This year’s HashMat weekend, February 22-24 will again feature a Friday prelube pubcrawl, Saturday trail at the Anchor Bar, and Sunday hangover hash. Look for more details to be announced next week!
