HASHING IN BALI: BETWEEN EASY STROLLING AND EXTREME TRAIL RUNNING
They call it a drinking club with a running problem. Hash House Harriers is an international group of non-competitive running social clubs. The origins of Hash House Harriers started in Malaysia in 1938 when a group of colonial officers began meeting to run off the excesses of the weekend. In Bali, Bali Hash House Harriers (BHHH) was founded in 1977. Who can hash? Anyone of any age and gender, for fun, fitness, and friendship, like they say. For a bit of running or walking in Bali’s beautiful countryside, put on your running shoes and go! But don’t be misled, it can be very tough and even dangerous as the trails – different each time – are occasionally set in very challenging areas of Bali.
