Bangalore Hash House Harriers
28 years and still running...
Its the Bangalore chapter of the drinking club with a running problem. We run on (almost) once a month somewhere in the countryside 20-50 km from the centre of town and occasionally indulge in outstation runs and Hash events.

Run 674 - Wet Groove in the Grove!
11th February 2018 -
A slightly warm afternoon and the hash mobile arrives at Kumars farmhouse at 3:15 p.m.
Slowly, hashers start trickling in with the two TT's - RT Nagar ZoomJet and the Ulsoor Express and an assortment of cars with 55 hashers.
Beer, shakes and cold coffee kept the hashers cool before the run start at 4:30 p.m.
Prelude - About 10 days ago GM, Ravishankar and OFB are scouting the west Bengaluru terrain for run locations with GM then leading the team to Kumars farmhouse off Neelamangala - a quick recce showed that we had the makings of a great trail. And with several trips by OFB - Raghu along with Ravishankar and Srini - Ice Ball the stage was set !
The run had its thrills and selfie moments - with three water bodies, a couple of bundhs and good green cover. The virgins cooed with awe at the changing countryside - even didnt prevent Polish Bum to get Kalsi to take multiple pics of him. A climb on the railway tracks to get a great view of the water bodies had everyone enthralled.
The water stop had oranges to refresh and shortly thereafter it was back to the farmhouse, but not before seeing a thick grove of trees, migratory birds and green fields.
OFB wanted to take hashers into the "Grove" but was vetoed by GM as it was getting dark.
At the farmhouse, there was no sign of the hash mobile to commence the serving of beer so OFB was sent with Flamethrower to discover what happened. Just appears that there were stragglers delaying the shutting of the water stop.
Beer, light snacks of potato chips, peanuts and GM's special Coorgi Pork did its rounds with an impromptu singing session by DJ Mukund and others happily joining in.
The circle started at 7:30 p.m. with the hares being iced and the run called Wet Groove in the Grove Run.
Birthday girl Mansi got iced and blew some candles and got birthday gifts too.
Virgin Harriettes were iced after they gave their phone numbers to the GM in two rounds - Jasleen, Saniya, Varsha, Dr Kanti, Mansi,Sunitha, Soni, Kristine and more.
The virgin hashers were all herded and called to say their names in unison at the count of 3.
OFB Raghu was made to drink beer from his new shoes! Cyber for being the gracious Biryani sponsor.
Lost Screw - our local quack was iced for winning an election in his state level fraternity.
All Harriettes were presented roses by the GM to commemorate Valentines day.
With it getting late, the hymn was lead by Skyhigh, followed by the Biryani dinner and more amber fluids and beer till everyone left at around 8:15 p.m. after an amazing evening.
