Hash Histories

Origins of the Hash

Hashing was started in Kuala Lumpur in 1938 by British expats.  Now almost every country in the world has a club or ‘kennel’.  This makes hashing perfect for anyone who travels regularly for business or pleasure and wishes to meet-up, socialise, and see parts of the city that they may otherwise never have seen.

Hashing is also a very good way to see the world. Kennels will organise events to celebrate milestones such as 25 years or 2000 runs, and everyone is invited.  Events will also be arranged on a geographical basis.  Every two years is Interhash where thousands of hashers from all over the world gather to run trails and socialise.  On alternate years regional gatherings are organised such as Eurohash and Inter-Americas.
