We meet every Monday night at 7pm throughout the year. During the winter months bring a torch!
We Hash in and around Milton Keynes all year round.
The HareLine page gives information on the time and location of our future events.
If your not sure what Hashing is, we say it is a Drinking Club with a running problem.
We are not a dedicated running club, but more a social group that likes to do a some running. (or not in some cases!) Generally the runners trail will be 3 or 4 miles.
You do not need to be fit to come out on a Milton Keynes Hash trail. We are different shapes, sizes and ages. Our trails are filled with ‘checks’, ‘holds’ and ‘fish hooks’ to make sure that even the most dedicated of sofa surfers can tag along and still keep up with the pack. There is a very wide mix in the running ability of our members, so you should always be able to find someone to, stroll, walk, jog, or even run with.
If you want to know more about hashing checkout this Wikipedia article.
We usually meet at the pub about 6:50 pm and go for a gentle or not so gentle run for an hour or so. There are also special Hash events where we let other people take part, such as the London Marathon. (Pub Crawl that is!). We pre-mark our trails in white flour. You can front run with our athletic bastards or walk round at the back with the knitting circle.
Afterwards, we head back to the pub for beer and the Hash Circle. We normally have our circle after everyone is back from the run and had a drink.
If you are new to Milton Keynes Hash we welcome you to try out our unique down down 'beer'. We pride ourselves on its supreme lack of quality! The post run circle involves beer(?) being given as a down down. The down down is so named because it should be consumed in one go after a little song that ends "drink it down down down down...". The song is sung by those present in the circle. The RA (Religious Advisor) is responsible for issuing these down downs. Down downs can be given for various "misdemeanours", such as falling over or getting lost on trail, or anything else that may be considered silly, either on the night or at some other time in the past week. Confusingly down downs are also awarded to celebrate notable achievments and milestones.

For reasons lost in hash tradition all hashers have a nickname. Hashers will normally be named by the RA during the runs closing circle. We try to be creative with our nicknames and they are only given after a suitiable misdemeanor or something you have said, it's likely the name given will be a double entendre or have some inuendo to it. Hashers are rarely named on their first run, it may take two weeks or two months but you will get a name. Whilst there are no rules on the hash you can't pick your own name!
Jamrag is setting this run from his local.
ONONforOZ is a Hash group set up by Haggissimo. The aim is for Hash groups to go for a little jaunt on Australia Day, Sunday 26th January and hopefully raise a little money for the relief effort in the bush fires. Many hash groups around the world have already signed up. All monies raised will go to charities.
MKH3 will be joining Hare & Hounds Hash House Harriers at the Old Sun, Ampthill at 11am as part of our little effort.
Blow Felt and LuLu from H5 will be your hares.
Let's all try and get along and support ONONforOZ, and be part of what could easily end up as a World record breaking event with so many countries, hashes and hashers taking part.
