Here are some links, in the Ulsan vicinity & slightly further afield, for all of you intrepid trekkers to investigate, so let us see how you fare as a hare!
It is said that "If you have half a mind to join the Hash, that's all it takes"
Hashing is a form of non-competitive cross-country running/walking with the main objective of working up a decent thirst. Great emphasis is placed on the social aspects - particularly the refreshment session at the aprés-hash. It's a fun activity and must not be taken at all seriously.
We are always looking for Hares, especially with the regular R&R patterns of some hashers. Sharing the Haring brings variety to the hashes and allows other regular hares to be hashers for a change.
If you have Hared before you will know the format, but the following was cobbled together from some internet hash sites plus some hints particular for Ulsan Hash.
Hints for Hares
- There are 3 basic types of Hash.
- An A-A starts and finishes at the same place.
- An A-B doesn’t finish where it starts. This means that the pack will not be able to guess the route in but requires you to get drivers back to their cars somehow. An alternative would be for the walkers to be A-B and the runners A-A providing there are some drivers amongst the runners.
- A Live hash has the hare laying the trail ahead of the pack. This can be done if you don’t have time to lay the trail ahead of the day but you need to know the area and be fit enough not to be caught before the end. If short of time, you could lay the runners trail beforehand and the walkers trail Live.
Hints for Caterers
- Ulsan Hash will reimburse you for all food expenses
- Keep it simple – most hashers are not fussy
- Keep it cheap – about half of the registration fees is for food with the other half used for the drinks (you do not need to buy the drinks)
- Soup is a traditional favourite – Ulsan Hash has a couple of large cooking pots for you to use.
- The Hash knows some good bakeries so if you need the Hash to buy the bread then please ask.
- National dishes make for a good variety.
- If you want to do a spicy dish then please do a second milder option.
- Please remember the vegetarians.
- Ulsan Hash can provide hotdogs for the Horrors if required.
- Try to gauge the numbers from recent previous hashes – depending on the time of year and proximity of public holidays we can get between 30 and 60 hashers.
- The Hares will let you know if the food is required at the hash site instead of the clubhouse. Ulsan Hash has a gas burner should you need it.
