Hash House Harrier Origins

The Hash House Harriers is a social club of runners that have been described as “a drinking club with a running problem”.
Ex-pat British businessmen, accountants, lawyers, civil servants etc., started HASH in 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is a club based on the old English game of hares and hounds where one or two members would be given several minutes head start and would drop shredded paper as the “scent”. The hounds would then follow, after the prescribed time, and attempt to catch the hares. The hares would lay the trail in a straight or obvious line, but then would stop laying trail and run off in another direction and begin laying the trail after 100 meters or so. When the hounds discovered that they were no longer a trail, they would fan out in all directions in search of the “scent” and would call to the others when the trail was once again discovered.

The founder of the HASH A.S.”G” Gispert, in 1937 discovered the Springgit Harriers, in Malacca. He introduced Ronald “Torch” Bennett to the concept and the stage was set.

When “G” returned to Kuala Lumpur in 1938, he became a member of the Federated Malay Stated Volunteer Reserves, which trained on Mondays. “G” and many of the other ex-pat Brits were housed in barracks in the Royal Selangor Club where he and “Torch” would often discuss starting a harrier club in KL (Kuala Lumpur). Finally in about December of 1938, “G” convinced about a dozen other to follow his inaugural paper trail. Gispert then suggested the name of HASH HOUSE HARRIES in mock allusion to the mess at the Selangor Club. The runs were held Monday evenings after reserve training and were followed by refreshments of beer.

“G” was killed in battle on 11th February 1942. HASH has since grown from this origin to include thousands of chapters and tens of thousands of hashers worldwide.

A typical has today is loosely-organised groups of 20-40 of men and women who usually meet weekly. Hashers follow chalk, flour or paper through streets, but also ford streams, climb fences and scale cliffs. At the end of the trail is a party whether you may or may not part-take in a cold beer.
