About China Hash House Harriers

China Hash House Harriers was founded in November 1975, spinning off from our father hash, Taipei Hash House Harriers.

Since then we have accrued over 2100 runs and counting. We run every Sunday rain, hail, snow or typhoon without fail. Our runs encompass some of the best trail available in the northern Taiwan area.

If you want to join a run you can find the info for the upcoming run by clicking on “This Weeks Run” in the navbar.

We also maintain a facebook group page for organising the group/sharing pictures. You can find us on Facebook by clicking here.

About The Hash House Harriers

Hashing originated in December 1938 in Selayang Quarry, Selangor, then in the Federated Malay States (now Malaysia), when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run, in a fashion patterned after the traditional British paper chase or “hare and hounds”, to rid themselves of the excesses of the previous weekend. The original members included Albert Stephen (A.S.) Ignatius “G” Gispert, Cecil Lee, Frederick “Horse” Thomson, Ronald “Torch” Bennett, Eric Galvin, H.M. Doig, and John Woodrow. A. S. Gispert suggested the name “Hash House Harriers” after the Selangor Club Annex, where several of the original hashers happened to live and dined, known as the “Hash House”.
