H5 Beer of the Year

Logo of Ossett Brewery White Rat beerOctober means the start of a new 'Year' for H5. It being currently the Chinese Year of the Rat, we have chosen White Rat beer from the Ossett Brewery in West Yorkshire.

New Year also means that the individual run counts for POSH Award, Layer of the Year etc are reset to zero, so get your challenge started for the new 2020-21 'Year'.

Rule of Six

Six BallSince the introduction of the 'Rule of Six' regulations, H5 has had to substantially change the way in which we hash. In general there will be a single run location each week, with hashers assigned to 'pods' of up to 6 people each, the pods being kept separate at all times. Hashers must apply to Run Coordinator Golden Globes to be allocated a place in one of the pods. NO BOOKING = NO HASHING

Future run locations will be posted as usual on the Receding Hareline. For the time being (subject to review) run subs are £1 per hasher (50p for Ankle Biters).
