Hashing has its roots in the old English game called “Hare and Hounds” where members chased after one another while on a cross-country run that had a trail designated with paper. With the spread of the British Empire, the game eventually found itself played by colonial officers and expatriates around the world. On a Monday night in 1938, a group of approximately five men met in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to help rid themselves of the excesses of the previous weekend and to share a few beers with friends.
The Constitution of the Hash House Harriers has four tenants:
- To promote physical fitness among our members.
- To get rid of weekend hangovers.
- To acquire a good thirst and satisfy it with beer.
- To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel
