On On to one of the best Hash Chapters in the world: Hanoi Hash House Harriers.
The Hanoi Hash is a run / walk where old and young, quick and slow can do some exercise and sightseeing and have fun on a Saturday afternoon. Participants call themselves the Hanoi Hash House Harriers. There is no membership, just show up on a Saturday.
The runs are set with dots of flour and are generally around 2 hours. A beer stop and hash-holds are normally part of the run.
Most runs are set within one and a half hour drive from Hanoi. It is a great opportunity to see something of the country side and daily life in small Vietnamese villages.
A bus leaves from the corner of Hai Ba Trung and Ngo Quyen close to the American club. Check the run directions for exceptions.
Every Saturday, rain or shine. Run starts normally at 15:00. The bus leaves from our departure point (see above) at 13:30 sharp in those cases. Check the run direction for exceptions.
Runs are followed by an On On, an informal and sweaty dinner somewhere in Hanoi.
