Hashing is a mixture of exercise and sociability, a combination of running and orienteering, where bands of harriers chase hares on three to five mile long trails through town and country, in search of exercise and friendship. The Hash is not competitive, and walking is perfectly acceptable. So if you enjoy running, jogging or just walking, Hashing is for you. Every Thursday night from May to August the Owston Ferry Hash will be organising all of its summer series at a different Public House around the Isle of Axholme, with the first hash being held on Thursday the 11 of May at 6.30pm from the White Heart Public house Owston Ferry. Full details of all the summer venues, details of the summer Hash Bash, and membership can be viewed via the link below.
So if you have half a mind to join the Hash, that's all it takes. If you have hashed before you will know the format but for the newcomers here's a quick rundown on what happens. But first and foremost please bear in mind that hashing is supposed to be fun so don't ever take it seriously:
3. Short cutting from the back to the pack is allowed but only if you can, cutting across fields in crop or uncleared land will only upset farmers so please don’t do it.
4. Always try to keep at least one hasher between you and anything which looks at all fierce such as bulls, landed gentry, geese and pigs.
5. If you hear the cry "LOOKING" it means that the trail has disappeared into thin air. This could be due to the trail being washed out by rain or an attack of chalk blindness by the front runners. Usually in this event the pack will spread out and the trail is soon located.
6. If you wish to know what the hell is going on up front, call "HOW ARE YOU?" which should evoke the response "CHECKING", "FALSE TRAIL", "OFF CHALK" or even "LOST".
7. Please don't shout too loud near animals. They don't like it. If cows, horses or sheep appear to be upset, WALK, don't run.
8. If you damage fences or gates, try to achieve some sort of repair before running on and, most important of all, NEVER LEAVE GATES OPEN.
Transgressions of this and any other "crime" committed during the hash will be drawn to the attention of the Hash RELIGIOUS ADVISOR who will hand out some dire punishment at the Après-Hash. You may also be asked to do a WRITE UP of the run (for publication in the Hash Trash). If so, please oblige - it helps everyone to remember where they've been and what they did but it doesn't have to be accurate - let your creative imagination roam free!
