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. 

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.

Punch and I will be setting our run from Days Picnic Ground, Lions Head Road, Mt Macedon.

It's been about 10 years since anyone has set a run in this area and although we were not present,

we are hoping it will be a bit different and offer a bit of a challenge.
