HASH HOUSE HARRIERS "The Drinking Club with a Running Problem"

H5 logoThe Hare and Hounds Hash House Harriers run every week from a different pub in the Bedfordshire & North Herts area. Runs start on Sundays at 11am except for a few weeks in the summer (2024: 3 & 17 Jun; 1, 15 & 29 Jul; 12 Aug) when we run Monday evenings at 7.30pm. New runners and drinkers are always welcome.
In addition to the weekly runs we have a social calendar throughout the year

If you are planning to bake a cake for this or any other run, please let our cake 'Master Baker' Lady P know by text.


You are reminded that you take part in a Hash entirely at your own risk. Hashing is a fun and sociable activity and we must all do our bit to keep it safe. Please listen to and follow the Hares' notes about potential hazards at the Circle before the Run.

All juniors must be supervised at all times by a parent, guardian or responsible adult within sight and hearing distance (Child Protection)

Dog owners please note that while H5 welcomes dogs to the Hash, owners are reminded that they are responsible for the actions of their dogs and that any third party claims arising will be directed to the individual.
