We are the Sydney Thirsty Hash House Harriers - the world (in)famous "Drinking Club with a Running Problem".

Every Thursday at 6:30pm (and once a month on Saturdays)

See list of runs on left; start location is different each week

WHY (abbreviated from original hash of 1938)?
To promote physical fitness among our members
To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer
To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel

A friendly group of women and men social drinkers with a running problem. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Turn up at the start location and look for runners. We'll introduce you to the group and explain how the runs work. On your first run, we'll assign a buddy to look after you! Feel free to bring a bag with street clothes etc. Someone watches all the bags while we run.

Runs are usually 5-8km, and our group has walkers as well as runners who run anywhere between 5 and 8 minutes per km.

The fee is $8 per run; you can pay at the run. We usually go to a pub after the run for dinner/drinks, so you might want to bring money for that.

We are a social bunch of folk who have fun and welcome anyone else who would like to join us, be it on a regular basis or just visiting. R*ns every Thursday at 6:30pm and the first Saturday of each month.

Visitors are most welcome. Contact us with any questions!
