Did you know that there’s more than one Summit Hash in New Jersey? I didn’t, but I do now. The Anything Goes Summit HHH is hashing the very week that this notice is being posted, on Saturday 8 Apr at 3PM. Start is at at 236 Communipaw Ave in Jersey City near Liberty State Park.
The on after has been thoughtfully posted already. Hashers who choose to tolerate each other after the trail may repair to the Lucky 7 at 322 2nd St in JC.
The famous Washington DC Red Dress Run is scheduled for Saturday Sept 23rd 2017, starting at 12 noon. Festivities will be held at the Blind Wino, which seems to be a bar located in the incredible Art Annex event space in SW.
Registration for the Washington DC Red Dress Run ain’t cheap, at $115, but gets you an array of benefits, including: Continue reading

Titled “The Horniest Place on Earth: EpcoXXX Center 2017”, the WH4 celebrate 30 years of being “the Most Magical Hash in the World”, or, I suppose, 30 years of hashing in the DC area.

Eurohash 2017 will hosted by the Vindobona Hash House Harriers in Vienna, Austria on 7-9 July, 2017 with a series of events including their Red Dress Run leading up to the big Eurohash weekend. Rego includes a goody bag, wrist bands, and “last minute information”.

Kiddie from the Tampa Bay H3 is offering a bus tour for hashers attending Eurohash 2017 in Vienna during July 2017. Sounds like fun!

The rego gets you a shared hotel room, breakfast, and five dinners.
Per the web site: Continue reading
In 2016, a reporter from Outside Magazine hashed with a few of the New York City Hash House Harriers’ kennels. I met her; she was a pretty good sport, hashing in Brooklyn and the city, and taking her down-downs without too many complaints. As is customary in New York City, she was not named.
The article was published in one of the magazine’s Fall issues and is now available online.
The Skull and Boners H3 celebrate their third anniversary with a hash in Meridan, Connecticut in November 18-20, 2016. Skull and Boners is a relatively new, “American Traditional” hash that runs around the New Haven area.
They’re offering three days of events, including:
- Friday: Kegs and pizza
- Saturday: Breakfast, a muddy midday trail, and dinner
- Sunday: Breakfast and an early morning fatboy trail
Sounds like a fun weekend! Lodging will be at the Parkway Motel in Meridan. According to their rego page:
This place is the type of klassy you’ve all cum to expect from the Boners and we can’t wait for you to experience it firsthand.
Registration deadline – in order to guarantee a personalized gimme – is October 31st. The fee is $69 plus an optional $8 (for a total of $77) for the gimme extras. Rego is here. Do it!
The New York City Hash House Harriers hosts its 19th annual Red Dress Run on the weekend of September 24 2016. Just like the city itself, the NYC event is always a raucous good time. The A to A trail promises lots of sights where hashers can simultaneously take in and be the scenery in the crowded city streets.
Hashers attending this event will have the opportunity to donate to the great charity Back on My Feet again this year. Somewhat controversially, a charitable donation is not included in your $30 hash cash, so the collection box will be at the on-in and you can kick in Continue reading
The Washington DC Red Dress Run is always an epic event, however this year the RDR committee is introducing a special King of the Hill award to the non-DC-area kennel that brings in the most attendees. All RDR-attending hashers from the winning kennel receives a “cool, shiny, glowing”, and possibly pretty worthless, prize.
So if you want to bring home something unique from this year’s DC RDR, start bugging your friends into registering.
DC RDR King of the Hill Standings
As of right now, in hash-vs-hash competition, Philadelphia’s Ben Franklin Mob H3 is in the lead with 10 regos, followed by Richmond H3, Hockessin H3, and Tidewater H3.
The differences between the leaders and back-of-the-pack is pretty small, so there’s still an opportunity for an upset when rego finally closes.
About the DC Red Dress Run
The 2016 DC Red Dress Run takes place on Saturday October 8, 2016, starting at 12PM (11AM for VIPs). Venue is the Capitol Skyline Hotel, (also the hash hotel for out-of-towners), which features an outdoor pool and poolside bar and is less than a mile from the US Capitol and National Mall. Special hasher rate for rooms is $199 per night.
For your registration, you get half a day of RDR activities, trail, beer check, buffet dinner, and late night dancing.
Registration Details for the DC RDR
As of this writing, rego is $95, however once those sell out the cost will go up to the final price of $105 until that sells out (DC Red Dress does sell out). Registration will close on October 3rd. Register here at hashrego.com.
The Summit Hash House Harriers are hosting the No Frills Interhash at the Harmony Ridge Campground from September 30 – October 2 2016. Hashers can register for 3 days of Interhash fun, or for 2 days at a discounted rate.
Summit H3 organizers are pushing for more participation from area hashers in this year’s No Frills Interhash, especially from the New York City area, including the New York City Hash House Harriers, Columbia H3, Long Island Lunatics H3, and Brooklyn H3. Given that the closest they get to camping is when they have to live in a refrigerator box when the rent gets tripled, New Yorkers tend to be infrequent campout attendees.
An interesting feature of this Interhash especially to those parentally-inclined is that Summit welcomes kids for the weekend! As it says on the website, the No Frills Interhash is “not necessarily a kid friendly event but hash spawn are welcome”.
The Summit H3 is offering a full weekend of hashing activities, including:
- Bimbo Trail with beer check
- Pot luck grilling
- Brunch for Friday campers
- Afternoon trail with beer check
- BBQ dinner
- Fatboy trail with beer check
- Noon checkout
The Harmony Ridge Campground in Northern New Jersey and a short drive from Philadelphia and New York City. You must make your cabin or camping reservation yourself by calling Harmony Ridge directly at 1-973-948-4941.

The Summit Hash House Harriers are well known in the area for being a great group and providing a fun time. We’re looking forward to this being another one of their great events.
