Come and join us! There is no charge for your first run (usually £2) and you don't need to be an olympic athelete. You can walk, jog or give it your all! Hashing is non competitive and is done 'just for fun'. Wear suitable clothing and footwear for muddy or wet conditions, bring a change of clothing and some money if you wish to join us in the pub afterwards. We usually have a meal and drink. We look forward to giving you a warm welcome.
Lune Valley H3 is a family hash and welcomes people of all ages and abilities. Hashing is non competitive and is a great way to stay fit, see some wonderful countryside and have fun. Come and join us and be assured a warm welcome!
We normally r*n in North Lancashire, South Cumbria and Southern Lake District at 11am on the second and fourth Sundays each month and at 7pm on the evening of a Full Moon.
A hash is loosely based on the traditional paper chase but using bio-degradable chalk and flour markings. One or more members (Hares) lay a trail, which is then followed by the remainder of the group (the Pack or Hounds). The trail often includes false trails, short cuts, dead ends and splits. These features are designed to keep the pack together regardless of fitness level or running speed, as front-runners are forced to slow down to find the "true" trail, allowing stragglers to catch up.
There is usually a "beer stop" at some point during the r*n (we can't bring ourselves to actually write that word) where there will be water, soft drinks and beer. There may even be some biscuits to keep you going!
We name our splits "Rambo" and "Wimps". Generally, the rambo split is for people of a more athletic nature whilst the wimps is for those that want to take it easy. There's no shame either way - the only shame is not hashing in the first place!
We try very hard to support local brewing, local pubs and local food...
