8th International Hash Challenge - March 1 - 3 2013
Hashing is a socializing event and has nothing to do with competitive running. True? Yes,......but for every hasher a run is a challenge of sorts: be it how to shortcut, be it how long to run uphill, be it for a fit guy to follow a girl with better stamina, be it to find paper after the check first..... It's a constant fight against your inner voice: rest, don't run further. But the swinehund inside you pulls you ahead to finally satisfy your ego: "I DID IT and now I can enjoy my beer."
Very long runs are actually not every hasher's mug of beer. But some enjoy strolling through the jungle for hours, perhaps on a recce. Or walking the bushes to find a new waterfall for a dip. Or only couching their TV, showing the daredevils at EcoChallenge, dreaming of: why not me?
For these few crazy people we have been since the year 2000, organizing a challenge: 42 km through Malaysian hash terrain, undoubtedly the finest in the world. It takes the average-fit hasher 10 or more hours to finish.
- It is a team event of 3 to 4, mixed or otherwise. Teams must finish in trios.
- There's a paper trail to follow and each team breaks the checks.
- Approximately every 10 km in the run, there will be a Control Point (CP) with water supply and other facilities. Teams sign out as a complete team. There'll be a cut off time at each CP. Teams reaching the CP after the cut off time, will be taken out.
- This is a team event. Teams are encouraged to stay together, support each and complete the challenge together as a team!
