Wij Zullen Niet Verdorsten
Brabant Hash House Harriers
Den Bosch - Eindhoven - Helmond - Tilburg
In Case You Did Not Know
We are simply a drinking club with a running problem. Just because beer is just so much better after you done some work for it. And no, running is not compulsory, nor is getting drunk. Kids and dogs also welcome. (Fair warning, we might eat dogs and children in case we run out of meat at a BBQ)
What is Hashing?
The Hash House Harriers are a social running clubbed steeped in traditions. Members come in all shapes, sizes, abilities ages and fitness levels. Hashing is a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work, a refreshing escape from the nine-to-five dweebs you're stuck with five days a week. Hashing is an exhilaratingly fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of harriers and harriettes chase hares and follow trails on eight-to-ten kilometer-long trails (5-7 km for those who walk) through town, forest and desert, all in search of exercise, camaraderie and good times. There is always a beer stop and running is not compulsory at all.

"Wij Zullen Niet Verdorsten"
De-hydration is one of the most horrible things that can happen in ones life. But we are a drinking club but with only a slight running problem. We do some running (8-12 km) or walking (5-7 km) with the sole purpose to induce a healthy thirst that needs to be clenched, obviously. A proper run has a beerstop along the way and much more beer and nibbles at the end of the trail. Most of us are expats or ex-expats but aboriginals are welcome as well. www.HashHouseHarriers.nl
We have our runs in North-Brabant, which is therefore NOT Halland. During civilian life the pack resides in Eindhoven, Den Bosch, Helmond and Tilburg. That is where our runs are going to be, near a train-station perhaps.
Every fourth weekend of the Month filling the gap that Amsterdam (1st & 3rd Sunday) and Wageningen (2nd Sunday) left open for us.
Our main events
We have a run on the Saturday, food, dress up and we hit town for a Brabant Carnaval. Sleep over party at Pink's place. We will try to convince Opee to set a hangover trail on the Sunday morning. Lunch of course and we close the day by watching the Carnaval Parade. When is it going to be you ask! 43 days before whatever date the Pope in Rome says Easter is going to be.
Stay with me for a bit.
- First, there is the equinox, somewhere near March 21st.
- Then the first full moon after this equinox.
- Then the first Sunday after the first full moon after the equinox.
Still with us?
- Now count 43 days back please.
That is the Saturday when Carnaval weekend starts. Simple !
In the last week of July, Tilburg hosts the largest Kermis of the world. The first Monday of this 10 day event is "Pink Monday" (no relation). The last Sunday is "Kermis-Hash-Sunday". A brilliant run and a BBQ to finish it off.
Mis-Managementin no particular order -- There are no fixed mismanagement positions -- There have only been a few runs so far. Whom-ever shows up regularly and/or sets a run is automatically part of mismanagement. That is how we do things in Brabant. We have only one rule, there will be pre-run beers --- Always ! ---
Because of the COVID-19, there might not be a full Carnaval weekend or a full Kermis in 2021,We keep you posted. Be saFe!
There used to be an Eindhoven chapter. Is this a re-birth? Or is it just a continuation of the Tilburg Carnaval Hash that has been organizing Carnaval Hash events since 2005? << Show up and find out >>
