At a hash, one or more of our members (the "hares") lay a trail, which is then followed by the remainder of the group (the "pack"). The trail periodically ends at a "check" and the pack must find where it begins again; often the trail includes false trails, short cuts and dead ends. These features are designed to keep the pack together despite differences in fitness level or running speed, as front-runners are forced to slow down to find the "true" trail, allowing stragglers to catch up. The end of a trail is an opportunity to socialise, have a drink and participate in the traditional hash "circle".
The Phuket Hash runs every Saturday throughout the year with a pack somewhere over 100. It is a mixed hash, you can even bring your children (be aware there will be very strong language used in the circle). Bring your dog if you must but please keep it chilled & under control.
The run starts at 4:00pm and lasts around an hour, we normally also set a walk which takes a similar amount of time. The circle then starts at 5:30 and also lasts an hour. Run fees are 60 baht for members, 100 baht fornon-members and 20 baht for children.
If you are a visitor to Phuket, have never been on a hash before or have been hashing for 20 years, then you're welcome to come along. Membership of the Phuket Hash is automatically awarded on your fifth run with us. There is a hash bus which runs from Patong and Kamala. See our website for further details.
