Welcome to the Yellow Brick Road Hash House Harriers!

Junction City/Manhattan's premier social running club. Extra emphasis on social. Not so much on running.

What is Hashing?

So, you're interested in hashing. Maybe it's because you've seen strange flour markings on roads and trails in the area (arrows, circles, and such), or you've noticed a group of people on a Saturday afternoon senselessly running around through one of the local neighborhoods. Most likely, it's because a hasher's silver tongue convinced you to consider the sport. In any event, welcome to the Yellow Brick Road Hash House Harriers (YBRH3). Variously described as "the lunatic fringe of running" and "the drinking club with a running problem," the Hash House Harriers are a worldwide group with hundreds of clubs in the United States, including five scattered throughout Kansas.

Hashing is simple. A harrier (the hare) lays a trail of flour or biodegradable paper over a course (s)he chooses. The other harriers (the hounds) try to follow that trail to the end where we enjoy munchies and beer (or soft drinks for those disinclined to imbibe). The typical hash is 3-5 miles over hill and dale, through suburbs, woods, malls, et al. The hash isn't a race - no prizes to the swift, and in fact, some of the hounds walk the entire trail. Staying on the trail is the challenge, camaraderie and beverages are the rewards.
