The Capital HHH is a friendly mixed Hash that has been running at 6 o’clock on Mondays all year round since 1982.  We even allow the odd friendly dog or two to join us for the run ... Mixo permitting.

What to expect/bring

  • yourself
  • running gear
  • warm/wet weather gear
  • expect a 1 hour run/walk
  • followed by a circle (usually outside)
  • followed by food catered by the hare
  • an hour or so of liquid refreshment and banter
  • in winter there is a fire bucket
  • usually folds around 9 to 9:30pm
  • all for $15
  • a sense of humour is compulsory

Our run sites are all over Canberra, Queanbeyan & Jerrabomberra so you tend to run in some of the best locations we have to offer – not to mention some of the worst!!

Run durations vary from under an hour to much longer depending how much of a bastard the Hare wants to be. However, we always have a walkers pack as well, comprising of walking wounded and slack old Hashers & Harriettes – and they mostly do a shorter trail to arrive home before the runners.

Just to summarise :

  • you can do the run
  • you can walk the runners trail with the cunning fast walkers (at risk of missing the drinkstop)
  • or you can do the walkers trail

As for drinks, there is usually a drinkstop and at the circle, the dray provides a vast array of beers, wines and the odd sparkling wine for the lush.  Ok, there is soft drink for the soft cocks.

So have a go – come along for a run or walk, and after its finished enjoy a drink (beer, bubbly, wine & softies) before listening to the friendly banter between the hashers during the circle after which food is served.

It can be quite an experience and costs only $15.  The hare does get reimbursed a fixed amount with different rates applying for summer time when numbers are up.
