About Us

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.  

 The Run
 
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. 
 
 Disclaimer

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. 

If you choose to run with us, you must agree and accept that the MHFMHHH Committee, the hare(s) duly appointed by the Committee, and the owners of the land and property where the run will take place will take all reasonable measures to ensure the safety and well being of the participants, but accept no liability for any injury, damage or loss, however these may occur. You will also not hold the committee, its members or any affiliated person(s) responsible for any accident, loss, damages or injury sustained by yourself before, during or after the run.

Full Moon Hash Run no 198  

Melways  

Date:           15 May 2016 - Note change of date

Time:           2.30pm for walkers, 3.00 pm for runners

Location :      Cape Schank

Melways:        259 J7   


You will all be “bussed” to the highest point so that it will be downhill for the rest of the run.
The walkers will be given a half-hour (2.30 p.m.) start and I will lead you through all of the checks.
The runners will do the same about five to six kilometre trail as the walkers. I will be supplying a drink stop about half way through the run.
In that way we should all arrive home at the same time. The trail is too beautiful for only the runners to experience.
 
You will see a herd of about 50–100 kangaroos, go though the tangled-tree forest (pictured below) slog through a foot wearying sandy bush track, and edge your way along a precipitous track with a hundred-foot sheer drop, despite it being in flattish country.
The BBQ afterwards is at nearby Fingals reserve where there are good toilets, picnic tables and sheltered BBQ's
