As with the rest of HK, the Sek Kong Hash follows the government guidelines on the current COVID-19 social distancing regulations, namely:-
(III) Mask-wearing requirement
(8) The mandatory mask-wearing requirement under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Wearing of Mask) Regulation (Cap. 599I) will be extended. A person must wear a mask all the time when the person is boarding or on board a public transport carrier, is entering or present in an MTR paid area, or is entering or present in a specified public place. Citizens are allowed not to wear masks if they are present in outdoor public places in country parks and special areas as defined in section 2 of the Country Parks Ordinance (Cap. 208), or are conducting strenuous physical activity (e.g. exercising or jogging) in outdoor public places.
(IV) Group gatherings
(10) Unless exempted, group gatherings of more than four persons in public places will remain prohibited. The requirement is also applicable to group gatherings in catering premises, bars/pubs and scheduled premises regulated under Cap. 599F in which the relevant requirements or restrictions are not complied with.

Next run location map - Moonie @ Moonie & Ebony Love Shack, Fu Tei Pai
Sek Kong Hash (SKH3) is a cross-country hare & hounds type running club, meeting every Sunday afternoon (as COVID rules allow), families and dogs are more than welcome to join. Whatever the weather, a different location is chosen by the hare, usually in the New Territories of Hong Kong.
Runs start promptly at 4.00 pm (3.00 pm in the winter months).
There is on occasions, a run at the "home" of the SKH3 commonly known as Leafy Glade but found easier on Google maps as "Kwan Yik Store" (junction of Lam Kam Road and Tong Min Tsuen roads) in Lam Tsuen Valley, near Taipo.
Visitors should contact "Mismanagement" to get any pre-run pick-up points or run location information - bring your running/hiking kit, $60 run fee (ladies $40), a change of clothes and a sense of humour :-)
Runs are generally around an hour long, usually with a hard & easy options and drinks are available at the end of the run. Food is also a possibility.
Notes of Sek Kong Hash House Harriers,
SKH3 is recorded in 'Harrier International' as existing in 1974 and is believed to have existed earlier as there are reports of regular SKH3 runs in 1967. They participated in the first ever global Interhash on 26 March 1978 and provided the famous 'truckload of curry' for the On-On from RAF Sek Kong. SKH3 had not numbered it's earlier runs but started to number runs since then (now numbering over 2200 runs). We were a former British and Commonwealth military hash, survived the changes in Hong Kong's 1997 handover to China and now welcome any person interested in joining our running group.
All visitors and running abilities are welcome, especially local hashers and visiting hashers from overseas.
We always like to hear from any ex-SKH3 hashers. Any recollections of your time hashing with SKH3 or special runs or hash events that may be of interest. A copy of any old SKH3 run letters, interhash activities, photos or committee details, would help to supplement our hash records. Contact details can be found on the "Mismanagement" page.
If you want to hash in HK during the week we recommend a run with the Northern New Territories Hash House Harriers (N2TH3), which meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm. Link below.
The new committee - let the chaos continue...
