Welcome to the Aberdeen Hash House Harriers (AH3)
Welcome to Aberdeen Hash House Harriers (AH3) website. Founded on the 23rd January 1983, Aberdeen Hash House Harriers is a non-competitive, fun running club of around 80 members. We run at a different location every week; on Sundays at 11am in the winter and on Mondays at 7pm in the summer.
All trails are roughly within a 30 mile radius of Aberdeen and are mostly in the countryside. Runs are usually around 8km long and are followed by a social get together afterwards.
New members, guests and visitors are always very welcome. For those not familiar with hashing, a good description can be found in New to Hashing.
"Hashing", as it has come to be known, is a "Hares and Hounds" or "Paper Chase" event and Hash trails are regularly set, up and down the Country. You do not need to be a good runner to hash (or for that matter be very fit). We have members of all ages, shapes and sizes, some walk the trail using sticks and some compete as tri-athletes elsewhere. A good trail sees everyone completing the trail in about the same length of time.
Suffice to say, it is a great way to get some exercise, see parts of the Scottish Countryside you might not otherwise ever see and have a great deal of fun at the same time.
It is intended to be fun, fair, but non competitive Cross Country running, which promotes "Hashing" as an exercise that also offers a social outlet.
It is simple to organise and easy to participate in, requiring little besides enthusiasm. Truly democratic, it transcends race, rank and religion. The benefits are fitness, fellowship and fun, and therein lie the secrets to its popularity. Its fun, Enjoy.
