There are several hashes in the Edmonton Area:


Edmonton HHH


The Edmonton HHH was founded by John "Splash N Dash" Cosco and Mike "Love Canal" Rust (both former Vancouver HHH).

The first run was held on September 9, 1991 and started from the Kinsmen Field House. The On-On was held at the Jekyll & Hyde Pub. The first run had 9 hounds and 2 hares. Over 2000 Edmontonians have run at least once with the EH3, and we currently have over 200 active hashers. The average pack is 80.

The EH3 runs Monday evenings at 18:30 during the summer and Saturday afternoons at 14:00 during the winter. The run fee currently is $5 and virgins run free for their first run with the EH3. Included in the run fee is swill and the world's finest "Hash Trash" painstakingly produced and published by Lucky Stiff.


Old Strathcona HHH



The Old Strathcona HHH was founded by John "Splash N Dash" Cosco (former Vancouver HHH) and Mike "Tool-In-Hand" Gordon.

Otherwise known as the "No Frills Hash" or the "Sunday Hash", the OSH3 runs year round most Sunday afternoons, except on long weekends, at 2 pm. There is no run fee.

The first run was held on October 2, 1994 and started from the Muttart Conservatory. The On-On was held at the Jekyll & Hyde Pub. The first run had 32 hounds and 2 hares. The average pack is 15. The OSH3 celebrated its 100th run in April 1997 and its 600th run in May 2009.


Edmonton Full Moon HHH



The Edmonton Full Moon HHH was founded in September of 1993 and runs once a month on (or near) the full moon. It is "A running social club which glows with fun and excitement when the Full Moon shines and on other special occasions." After the run hashers typically meet at either a pub or the hare's home.

The Edmonton Full Moon HHH is under the watchful di-erection of Finger Food. If you're interested in haring or attending a fullmoon run, you can email Mr. PeeeeeNut who will put you in contact with Finger Food.


Edmonton Bash (Bicycle Hashing)


The Bash rides every Tuesday during the dirt months. A mountain or cross-country bike is recommended as most of the ride is on single track trails. Less crazy bashers may want to ride on nearby gravel or pavement trails. Bring a Helmet!!!! Phone the Hash Hotline for more details.
 


The Intreadible Walking Hash



The Intreadible Walking Hash was founded by Wendy "Trot-to-Hot" Williamson for the SCB's, BOP's, Cherryites, Socialites, Sheep, Stragglers, Turtles and Injured Runners of the EHHH.

The IWH held its inaugural walk (yes, WALK) on Thursday, March 14, 1996 at Emily Murphy Park. After a brisk 60 minute walk, 23 hashers strutted off to the On-On. This is a walking hash. No running, only striding, stepping, hiking, marching, pacing, trekking, strutting, rambling, roving, meandering, promenading, wandering, treading, shuffling, strolling, straggling, plodding, or tramping.
Also a "No Frills Hash", the IWH walks every Thursday at 6:30pm year round. There is currently no fee. For more info contact the Hash Hotline (780) 444-3434.


Snowshoe Hash




The Snowshoe Hash was founded by Estelle "Pitstop" for the EHHH hashers who want to enjoy about 1.5 hours of the best, mostly virgin, snow that Edmonton has to offer.

The first snowshoe hash was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at Terwillegar Park and the onon was at The Bend.

Another "no frills" hash, with no fee, the SNASH meets every Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm during the snow months and continues to be mismanaged by Pitstop.



Diva Hash



Founded by Pat "French Tickler" Gay and Margaret "Mud Vessel" Golberg, the Diva Hash meets every Friday the 13th, or on the birthdays of noteworthy divas. The first run was on July 13, 2012 at G-Spot's home.




Bitch-u-Man Hash



Founded by Darren "Wisecracker" Murray and Kevin "Bird Shit" King, the first run of this hash was held on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at the Jekyll and Hyde Pub, with about 20 attending. It was named the Bitch-U-Man HHH on its 6th run on May 17, 2012. The Bitch-U-Man HHH meets every Thursday at 6:30 pm, usually at a pub where the on-on is also held.



Edmonton First Night HHH


  • The EFNHHH held its inaugural run at 2:00am (yes, am) on January 1, 1996 at the Crestwood Curling Club. Approx 50 hashers attended the party and then 28 managed to stagger out for the early morning run.
  • There were 10 more EFN hashes, changing venues from Rosario's, back to Crestwood and then finally to Whitemud Creek Community Hall - considered to be the best venue since Bird Sh-t and Numb Tongue's place was within staggering distance.
  • The EFN hash held its last run in 2006. Lickin Lizard, Bird Shit, Numb Tongue and Mr. PeeeeeNut were seeing less and less interest in a Hash NYE party.
