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 676-677 - Humping and Bumping at the Sakleshpur Sojourn
April 7-8 2018
And here returns our original hash scribe Gora – Shaggy Motor Mouth!
For all those who havent attended this Sojourn, THANK YOU. Without your attendance we could drink, carry less hashers back on stretchers and do many other unmentionable acts which might have offended the sentiments of many.
Come 10:30 a.m. and most hashers landed at the resort in assorted vehicles. Not Raja Kumar and the BTM Thunderbirds who all had faulty GPSes and even faultier sense of direction!
The moment we landed in the Resort there was a rumble in the Jungle due to the Grumble in the Stomach. This was quickly subdued with a great lunch that consisted of the efforts of the hares Sky High (Akash), Lost Screw (Roshan) and Half Size (Monish), who went out of their way to source Biryani from Hassan. FlameThrower ably managed the beer logistics. But considering the reputation of this Bunch it was possible that they did this to check out the local bars. Rumour has it that the local bars provided them special protection from the Election officers due to the business increase that happened during their visit. In fact the local police and election officials paid a visit to the resort enquiring of membership possibilities. Luckily our GM likes to have a lawless bunch instead of them.
Registrations done in a jiffy by Deodorizer and Beer sale offendingly managed by GM was the prelude to the water polo match between the Hares team and the Non hares – which was a blast with Lost Screw regularly having to go after the ball in the coffee gardens.
The run though delayed by half an hour due to the pressing needs of lunch and siesta. The description of the trail was done by Skyhigh's hands. I guess he had forgotten to swallow his beer.
The trail led through some dense vegetation, inclines and steep declines. Dr.Roshan had a wonderful gleam in his eye each time a hasher fell on the ground. He was the first to rush to the spot to make inspections of the limbs. Luckily no other organs were hurt. I am sure he would have called for a doctors inspection then and there. Such was his enthusiasm.
Prads and GM were the only FRB’s who ran most of the way where one could run surprising Lost Screw back at the resort.
This is the first time we have seen ropes hung to help hashers climb up the inclines. In fact such were the inclines that it was discussed that in case anyone fell we should be able to bury him then and there. Carrying them back was not an option.
The water spot was held on a hill. Somebody commented it looked like a rump. I am sure he meant hump. Not many harriettes hung around as far as i know. Great views but of what i am not sure. Most were peering into the distance with a sigh. I hope it was for the natural beauty.
Water melon and beer being served at such heights must be commended. Finally we all reached the resort exhausted for the all round workout and of great trail.
Trails like these are what we come to the hash for. Kudos to the hares for making it one of the memorable trails for a long time to come!
For all the sweeties who want to take out their tweeties this run was a great way to check out the locations.
The circle was duly postponed to the next day considering the condition of the hashers.
7 a.m. and the fun evening started with music and Karaoke and barbecue that went on till 10:30 p.m. in the night – Lost Screw, Sky High and Govind lead the singing and LitHerBum (Jaya) and Vijaya did their scintillating bits and an amazing performance by Shaggy Motor Mouth (Gora) on his Organ.
Run 677 : Cyber Streaking in the Hills
7:30 a.m. on Sunday and Cyber and Prads disappear in the jungles with the GM desparately trying to search for them to show them some segments of the run. But they had vanished.
Finally they turned up at 9 a.m. and promptly taken by GM to relay part of the trail for its scenic elements that was missed out.
10 a.m. and the run started post breakfast. Some 15 hashers enjoyed a different but scenice view of the countryside behind the resort and a few adventurous ones went further behind to to explore the long trail.
This Recovery run which Cyber and his gang laid must be commended for this quickie.... of a run. A small gap on the trail of which the width was less than a foot had a small wooden log placed to help cross over. I think Cyber was trying to be friendly to the differently abled. Must be reading too many building laws.
The circle had a demonstration of the benefits of shampoo and beer and naming of the two runs. GM was the test subject and subjected to a thorough washing on his head. It was a good hand job given to the upper half that didnt matter and also to thank him for this untiring efforts in reviving the HASH and giving us runs, pub crawls, Nash Hash, Holi Hash Run and others.
It was Faheem – Blow Jobs birthday – and he treated everyone to a round of beer and sent the hash cash registers ringing. The previous night was a wild one with Jaya plying him vodka shots and more till he was reportedly confessing by the swimming pool, that he had never had such a wild bunch of happy friends!!
Election officials and police paid us a surpise visit and left as soon as they saw what a useless bunch of arrestees we would make. Lunch and the journey home commence at 2 p.m. onwards.
First for the enthu group that most of them signed up 2 weeks before the event.. the hares for the Hassan trip to get the special hash mutton biryani mutton, that we added to the menu. Roshan, Akash and Govind - but for your enthu, so many of the hash events in the last 1.5 years would have been difficult to organize. And even for this event - with Govinds cars bumper torn off in a skirmish with a highway dog, we could develop the event into a memorable hash - with a fantastic trail. Cyber tried his best to outdo the recovery run trail - and it was a great effort... Kimiko for ensuring that we didnt go amiss on any of the rego collections.. And believe it or not - even the beer stocks reconciled after the event - so bow again to Dinesh !!! The efforts of all who carried the beer back - great work done! And thanks to all the bar sponsors - Shastriji for the DSP black - Rajkumar for Coconut flavored White Rum Cabo, Old Monk and Black Dog, and Jaya for a generous heart with a 1 litre bottle of Smirnoff! We love you guys! On On... And all those beasts of burden - the hares, Monish, Ravi, Prithvi and others, who helped move the coolers to our venue now and then..
