The Melbourne Howlers Full Moon Hash House Harriers are a group of cross-country runners who enjoy getting out of the suburban area into the Australian bush to explore bushland and enjoy a great run within a drive of about one hour from the Melbourne CBD. We follow the running traditions of the original Malaysian Hash House Harriers with some modifications.
Runs are set on the Sunday nearest the full moon and commence at 3.00 p.m. in winter and at 4.00 p.m. during daylight saving time. Two runs are set from the starting point. The main run is of duration about one to one and a half hours, and we have a shorter and easier trail for those who choose to walk. The Hare sets the runs and provides bread and salad. The hare is also responsible for the write up of the run on the following month.
What You Need to Bring
We welcome all and there are no fees. However you will need to bring your own meat to cook on the BBQ facilities provided by the hare and suitable drinks for yourself and also to contibute to the Grogmaster for any charges that may be brought against miscreants.
By attending our monthly outings, you undertake not to hold the organisers, any affiliated individuals or the managers and owners of properties you traverse, responsible for any injuries, or mishaps whatsoever, and accept full responsibility for all your own actions.

Date: Sunday 1 March 2015
Hare: Joan (3 Speed) and Alan (Canny) McCann
Start Time: 4.00 pm
Location: Greens Bush, Mornington Peninsula National Park (note no dogs allowed)
Melways: Map 254 D5
How to Get There:
One of many options…… Take Mornington Peninsula Freeway (M11) to its end at Rosebud. Turn left into Jetty Road and follow this road, which becomes Browns Road, for 6 km to the roundabout of Browns, Purves and Baldry Roads. At this roundabout take the Greens Road exit and follow Greens road for 2 km to the Run Site car park. The car park is shaded by many trees but does not have any facilities, so please bring your own tables and chairs. The Committee will bring a gas BBQ.
Alternatively, if you want a scenic view, you could exit the Freeway slightly earlier, drive up Arthurs Seat, and follow Purves road to the same roundabout noted above.
The walk will be about 4 km long and very picturesque with much wildlife to see including kangaroos and birds.
The run will be about 8 km through original vegetation without any steep hills.
