Something completely random...yet strangely interesting.

I found this website completely by accident. Thank you, lucky google. Does anybody have the slightest clue as to what in the hell these people are talking about? I think it is a pub crawl...but then again...

OMG...What a brilliant idea. So now, we need to start one where every runner is also cosplaying too.

I actually know someone whose father was in one of these groups. It's supposed to be a good time for All Involved.

I first hear of this in a paper presentation at a Popular Culture conference. They say they are a drinking club with a running problem. It sounded crazy to me at the time, but I've seen more about this recently in some media outlets. Seems the internet is bringing all the underground above ground.

Appears to be a running trek that is led by the "hares" who trace out a path by leaving markers.

The success of the run is directly proportional to how many runners actually get to the destination.

And, of course, there is TONS of beer to be drank at the eventual destination. What an odd concept.

Sounds like a lot more fun than just sitting around and getting plastered though...especially when the orienteering rears it's ugly head.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Together we will expose hashing for the evil cultist ritual it really is!
