Join the Qingdao Hash House Harriers for run number 309 in Qingdao on January 5, 2013.

When: January 5, 2013 @ 1 pm
Venue: Crowne Plaza Hotel

From the Qingdao HHH: “Here in Qingdao, every week the Qingdao Hash House Harriers jog, walk, crawl and run a 60 to 90 minute fun run. They follow a trail marked with flour laid out by “hares” which ends at a “Down Down” circle.”

Dear Hashers,

2012 is history now and what a year it was. We had some very cool runs, some very long runs; we had special runs and we passed the 300 run mark. Does that mean that the QD Hash is all grown up now? Oh no, of course not. We will still have interesting Hashers, chaotic runs and lots of beer in the new year. Sounds good, right? Here are just a few thoughts that are being discussed at the moment and will give you a little taste of runs that we hope to do in the new year:

Charity Run in the Crowne Plaza
That will happen in late February / early May. Again, we’ll run up the Crowne Plaza tower, from the parking garage to the top. And all for charity and, well, why not. Runners can get prizes which are donated by sponors and supporters, so if you think you have it in you to race up all the stairs, then start practicing and show us what you got on the run.

Hot Spring run in Jimo
That might happen sometime soon, and we’ll keep you posted. Wouldn’t it be nice to relax in a hot tub after the run?

Hash trip to Singapore
Yeah, you read that right. Thanks to a new connection between Qingdao and Singapore, it is now very affordable to fly there and enjoy some of the Singapore Hash culture. If you are interested in this trip then talk to me after one of the next runs.

Unicornis run
We didn’t do it this year but that doesn’t mean that we don’t want to go out to Pingdu, enjoy the countryside and then visit the Unicornis destillery.

But of course we also have great runs for you every Saturday, so make sure to clear your schedule and join us again in the new year. If you are interested in setting a run then contact Well Hung Jury and he can give you the date and info. It doesn’t matter if you have never set a run before or if you have set a few already, every hare is welcome. We need hares for the next few runs. It will start with a run set by experienced hares Whore’s Whisperer and Silent but deadly. Below you’ll find the details, wish you all a great new year, on on
