NASSAU HASH HOUSE HARRIERS
Welcome to the homepage of the Nassau Hash House Harriers, (Nassau, Bahamas). If you're in town visiting - on a vacation or for business - why not join us for a run or two? If you live here why not become a member of our friendly band? The Nassau Hash meets once every week for a run (or a walk). After the event we have a few beers at a local bar - the "On In". In winter we meet on Sundays at 4pm (or, on occasion at 10:30am), and in summer we meet on Mondays at 6:30pm. Contact us by e-mail for further information.
The Hash House Harriers (abbreviated to HHH or H3, or referred to simply as the Hash) is an international group of non-competitive running social clubs. An event organized by a club is known as a Hash or Hash run, with participants calling themselves Hashers or Hares and Hounds.
The objectives of the Hash House Harriers as recorded on the original club registration card dated 1950:
To promote physical fitness among our members.
To get rid of weekend hangovers and develop brand new ones.
To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it with good beer..
To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel (old bastards). LOL.

There's a magazine, too, for God's sake!
Call Dave on +1 242 394 1711 or +1 242 565 7283 if you are stuck.
The announcement of the next run is normally posted by the day before but sometimes it's later. Keep checking if you don't see one, we haven't missed a single weekly run since 1984! (Well at least, we hadn't until covid came along!)

There was no Bahamas Marathon in 2021 due to covid. We hope and expect that it will take place on January the 16th 2022. If it does, the Hash will field a team. The last one was:
The boys' team: "Powered by Sands" :
Leg 1: Marco
Leg 2: Laurent
Leg 3: James
Leg 4: Henrik
The girls' team: "Truly Beerhamian" ?
Leg 1: Tineka
Leg 2: Barbara
Leg 3: Dominique
Leg 4: Kira
Well done team!
Cap'n Crash, Balls-by-the-Hour, SuperBalls and Muff Diver.
We did well again. Look at our results.
Some teams did better than us, but just consider their averages ages compared to ours!
We fielded two teams. Thanks to those who came to cheer us on as we finished. Here are the complete results. Both teams appear to have been placed 8th in their groups.
Something to avoid when setting a run in the pineyard
Poison wood: avoid it like the plague if you are sensitive to it. The colour of the leaves can vary from pale green to dark green and even purple, often with black spots on the older leaves. The plants above are small, but they can grow much taller. The active compound is urushiol which is used traditionally to make Japanese lacquer - by convicts at one time, I believe. Brushing against the plant leaves a deposit on the skin, which leads to an unpleasant skin reaction. Since the compound is oily it is not very easy to wash off, but using concentrated shampoo, body-wash, or washing-up liquid seems to work very well for many people, if applied promptly after contact. An antihistamine cream (such as Banophen) seems to help a lot too. I am not sensitive, but I did have some itchy bumps from cutting a lot of it down whilst setting a run.
15th January 2017
Our teams (Truly Beerhamian and Powered By Sands) were placed 45th and 26th respectively out of 59 teams. (No overal time was recorded for one team out of the 60.) You can see the results at this website.
