Welcome to the Stockholm Hash House Harriers!
🍻 A Drinking Club with a Running Problem 👣
The Hash House Harriers is an international non-competitive running / drinking / social club that was started by a few British expatriates at the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1938. The three tenets of hashing are: a) to promote physical fitness, b) to acquire a good thirst, and c) to satisfy it with beer. This winning concept spread over time and you can now find local chapters (aka kennels) in almost every big city throughout the world!
The Stockholm Underground and Absolut H3 meet every Wednesday night and every second Saturday afternoon all year around come rain or shine (or snow). You can find the next run listed below and more to follow in the calendar and under respective subchapters above. Runs are typically around 6-10 km long and last for about an hour with frequent regroupings and liquid refreshments along the way followed by a social gathering afterwards.
Hashing involves a person known as the hare to secretly mark up a trail with flour and chalk that a pack of hounds (runners) will follow. But be aware, because there's trickery afoot! Faster runners may find themselves slowed down by false trails allowing slower runners to catch up. Some marks may even direct the pack into various actions, such as singing a song or running back onto themselves! (If it sounds confusing, don't worry: All this will be explained before the run at the Chalk Talk.)
So lace up those old shoes and cum & run with us! Shape or level of fitness doesn't matter, everyone is welcome and you'll find slow walkers as well as fast sprinters and long distance marathon runners among us at any age from about 18 to 80.
Apart from this website, we also have a private Facebook page and a Yahoo Groups mailing list where we post information about future runs and discuss other hash related topics. To join the list, send an e-mail to and tell us who you are. For the Facebook page, ask someone you meet at the hash to add you.
