About us

中文看网页的下面。 After more than10 years running/hiking in and around Qingdao we are still active (almost) every Saturday and enjoy getting together for a run/walk, followed by drinks and (optional) dinner and maybe more drinks...

A Hash trail run/walk lasts for around 1 - 2 hours and will lead the Hashers through a different area of Qingdao every time.  Hash walkers usually get a shortcut so everyone finishes at about the same time.

Everyone is welcome to join! It is not a race and walkers are just as welcome as runners, as long as all enjoy getting together with other people and exploring the city together.

The fee for a Hash trail run/walk and a few drinks is usually only 20 rmb! Qingdao Hash House Harriers meet (almost) every Saturday in the lobby of the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 2pm unless otherwise specified.

In case you are thinking of inviting young relatives or friends, the main rule in our QDH3 Hash group is that most of our events are for adults (18 y.o.) only. But, about once each 2 or 3 months, we will organise an all ages Hash event.我们比较强的规则是参加我们一般的Hash活动你必须18岁以上(或高中毕业了)。 不过大概两三个月一次我们安排全年龄Hash活动。

Please contactus if you want to join in on new and upcoming activities.

On On!

WHAT IS HASHING? Hashing是什么?

Around the World, Hash groups are known as “
The drinking club with the running/hiking problem“. Which is a good summary… However, people join for different reasons: to see great scenic areas, to be social, to get some exercise, to drink beers and have a laugh, etc..

Hashers come in all shapes and sizes. You can be fast or slow, no problem. It's a great way to meet people and be social while at the same time get some exercise.

A Hashing event has 4 main parts. We really expect everyone coming to our QDH3 Hashing events to be there and participate in AT LEAST the first 3 parts, and the 4th part is optional.
Hash活动有四个部分. Hashers必须参加先第三个部分. 最后一起吃饭有事可以不参与但是我们希望大部分的Hashers和大家一起吃饭,聊天,开玩笑.

1. CHALK TALK - Pre-Hash instructions and special trail information – Don’t be late!!! (10 – 15 mins) 教新来的Hash员怎么Hash. 告诉所有参加者这次Hash有什么特别的方面. 不要迟到!!!

2. HASH TRAIL - The Hash run/walk following the interesting and scenic trail set by the Hares. At about halfway, we stop for a quick drink break. (~75 – 120 mins) 跑步, 慢跑 或者 走走 Hash的美丽的有意思的线路。 在路线一半的位置我们休息一会儿。

3. THE CIRCLE - Post-Hash “Circle” where funny events and “misdemeanours” on the trail are discussed, a few (often bawdy, vulgar and/or irreverent, but always humorous) drinking songs are sung and beer is drunk (or water / juice for non-drinkers) (30 – 45 mins) 讲这次Hash活动出现了什么有意思的,幽默的或者以外的情况

4. THE BASH - The “Bash” (dinner) is a separate cost.  Usually it costs about 40 - 50 rmb. (60 – 90 mins) 晚餐,聚会 – 另外付款
In the past 12 years, most of our QDH3 Hash events cost 10rmb (but that changed to 20rmb from last weekend). That includes some water and beer and trail-setting materials for the Hares. Occasionally, some Hash events may cost more if we hire a bus or have other expenses. Hash活动一般要付10人民币包括一些水,啤酒和小吃. 可是这个10快的消费是12年前组织了,所以我们近来决定从4月16日增加到20快一次的消费。

We don’t expect anyone to attend every Hash event, but we do expect everyone to make some effort to come at least a few times a year! Hashing is an (almost) all weather activity. 你不需要每一次都来参加不过我们希望你一年内最少六至八次来. Hash活动是什么天气都可以参加Hash.

Hash History

Hashing originated in December 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, then in the Federated Malay States (now Malaysia), when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run, in a fashion patterned after the traditional British "Paper Chase" or "Hare and Hounds", to rid themselves of the excesses of the previous weekend.

The original members included, Albert Stephen (A.S.) Ignatius "G" Gispert, Cecil Lee, Frederick "Horse" Thomson, Ronald "Torch" Bennett and John Woodrow. A. S. Gispert suggested the name "Hash House Harriers" after the Selangor Club Annex, where several of the original Hashers happened to live, known as the "Hash House" where they also dined.

After the end of World War II in an attempt to organize the city of Kuala Lumpur, they were informed by the Registrar of Societies that as a "group" they would require a Constitution. Apart from the excitement of chasing the hare and finding the trail, harriers reaching the end of the trail would partake of beer, ginger beer and cigarettes.

The objectives of the Hash House Harriers as recorded on the club registration card dated 1950:
-To promote physical fitness among our members
-To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer
-To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel

At present, there are almost two thousand chapters in all parts of the world, with members distributing newsletters, directories, and magazines and organizing regional and world Hashing events.

Hash groups are (dis)organised by a Mismanagement Committee and, as the name suggests, things are not always perfectly planned or executed. You can read about the Qingdao Hash House Harriers Mismanagement Committee here.

The Hash House Harriers 是边跑步边喝酒的休闲活动俱乐部, 1938年在吉隆坡开始。这是来自英国的一种古老的游戏-猎狗抓兔子。当猎狗追兔子时,兔子为了避免被抓到,用面粉或粉笔标示假路标。一群猎狗喊着互相帮 助找路, 兔子写记号迟延追捕。 1938年在吉隆坡,英国人因为过量的啤酒导致肥胖,为了弥补没有健身运动,所以开展了这项活动。 跑步后,为了奖励他们的运动,把荣誉的’Down Down’(啤酒)奖赏给兔子和猎狗。The QDH3 "Mismanagement" Committee 包括 the Grand Master(GM 主持人), the Religious Advisor(RA 监管人)或所有人提出来的Hash活动以外的事情,也可以当作受down down名誉的理由。如果你感兴趣,就加入吧! 不要担心,开始前会给你们解释仪式和规矩!
