Our website has been recently revived (November 2016) after a four year hiatus and it is intended to update the material over time. That said, we will update the "next runs" every Tuesday. 
Our runs take place on a Thursday at 18:30h. Our Facebook page is active and may be found here:

Stavanger Hash House Harriers prides itself on being open to everybody and we encourage people of all running (and indeed walking) abilities to join us. As you will read below, the nature of the hash trail encourages the faster runners to run a longer distance allowing everybody to run as a group regardless of their running ability. Our runs take place in the Stavanger area (e.g. Sørmarka, Hundvåg, Gausel, Forus, Storhaug, Tasta etc) so are usually accessible to all.
At a Hash, one or more members (Hares) lay a trail marked with sawdust, which is then followed by the the group of runners, walkers and joggers (the Pack or Hounds). We run in a different location every week. The trail includes false trails, short cuts, dead ends, and splits. These features are designed to keep the runners together regardless of fitness level or running speed, as front-runners are forced to run extra distance to find the "true" trail, allowing walkers to catch up.

The social element of a hash run is as important, if not more so, than any athleticism involved. The hashers enjoy a few cold beers after the run. Though the balance differs between chapters, with some groups placing more focus on socializing and others on running. There are room for all level of runners, joggers and walkers as long as they also enjoy the social aspect of the hash.

Hashing originated in 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run, in a fashion patterned after the traditional British Paper Chase or "Hare and Hounds".
