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.
