Welcome to the Pittsburgh Hash House Harriers!
CRITICAL MISMANAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT:
Dear Pittsburgh Hashing Family,
Through rain, sleet, snow, or heat, the hash has always gone on. The hash has never faced a pandemic and we need to take this seriously.
We are all facing a situation none of us in our generation has faced before, even this old (ahem. Experienced) hasher. We can do our part to help prevent further potential spread of the CoVid 19 by heeding the recommendations of the CDC, our president, and our governor. That is to stay away from close contact with others, an impossible request when hashers get together.
I know that’s going to be hard for me personally. I love running with the hash. I love socializing with my hash family When I woke up this morning, I resisted the idea of postponing hashes. But then I started listening to other hashers and kennels that are doing the right thing.
In correspondence with others in our Mismanagement, we decided to postpone/suspend all upcoming Pittsburgh hashes until the health advisors lift the recommendations to restrict group interactions. This goes into effect today.
Instead of spreading the virus, let’s spread our hashpitality. Let’s be there for hashers and non-hashers who need us to bring them food or other necessities or just to be good listeners. If you need something or know of others in need, post to the facebook page or contact any of your mismanagements. We can keep your requests anonymous.
Hashers love social contact. Let’s keep in touch with each other. If you have creative ideas about virtual hashes, let MM know and we’ll coordinate it.
We’ll be on true trail again when it’s safe to do so. Though this makes all of us sad, it is the right thing to do.
Pgh HHH GM,
MISMANAGEMENT WILL UPDATE YOU ONCE WE ARE ACTIVELY CLEAR TO HASH AGAIN. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING IN THIS DIFFICULT TIME!
What is Hashing?
- You have just stumbled upon an international phenomenon, where a group of people, “Hashers”, follow a cryptic trail that has been marked by the “Hare”. This trail leads to beer, water, snacks and a lot of camaraderie. Some people run, some people walk, but they all follow these marks along streets, trails and off the beaten path until they find a beer stop. Now, there is water there too and snacks, but we’re really known as a Drinking Club with a Running Problem.
- Awesome! How do I start?
- You may already be a hasher! Consult the Calendar for convenient times to join us and find out! (Those with open minds and over 21 fit best…)
- Want to hare a trail?
- Contact our Hare Raiser for available dates. They can also help match newer hares with possible hare mentors. (PghHareRaiser@gmail.com)
