Welcome to the Internet home of the Cape Fear Hash House Harriers. We are a drinking club with a running problem. CFH3 has been laying trail and causing general debauchery in and around Wilmington, North Carolina since 2006.
“Hashing” was founded in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1938, when a group of British colonial officials and expatriates founded a running club called the Hash House Harriers. Runs were patterned after the traditional British paper chase. A “hare” was given a head start to blaze a trail, marking his devious way with shreds of paper, all the while pursued by a shouting pack of “Harriers.” Only the hare knew where he was going . . . the Harriers followed his clues to stay on trail. Hashing is a mixture of athleticism, sociability, and hedonism, all in search of mayhem, debauchery, and the ever elusive “Beer Near.”
CFH3 meets every Saturday of every month (regardless of the weather) at 2 PM for a 3-5 mile trail. CFH3 is open to all levels of fitness and mayhem. Cost is $5.00 to cover beer (must be 21 or older), ice and other beverages. Bring a whistle and a change of dry clothes.
