The next Qingdao Hash House Harriers run is October 15, 2011 – meet at Crowne Plaza (next to Jusco) at 2 pm. Run 245 starts downtown and ends on the beach for BBQ and beer. DEFA trip has been rescheduled to a later date to be confirmed.

When: October 15, 2 pm
Venue: Meet at the Crowne Plaza, 76 Xianggang Zhong Lu

From the Qingdao HHH official website: “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.”

More info from the Qingdao HHH:

Due to some other reasons, we unfortunately have to cancel the trip to DEFA in Jimo. But that doesn’t mean that we will not have a good run, followed by some food and beer. Instead we will just stay in the downtown area and go to the beach afterwards.

Run No. 245 – Saturday October 15, 2011

Hare/s: Straydog

Costs: RMB 20/head this time for hashers and harriettes, RMB 10/head for horrors up to 12 years old (as we buy some BBQ things).

Meeting Place and Time: Meet at Hotel Crowne Plaza at 2 PM for a 2:15 PM SHARP start! We will take a bus ride to the run site OR Shi Lao Ren Residents: 2:45 PM at the hotel on Shi Lao Ren beach with the dome shaped roof (that hotel has many names such as “the cathedral”, “the capitol / senate” or even the “white house”). You probably know which one. If not please contact us.

Run starts at 3 PM SHARP!

Plan to attend? Please RSVP here.

More Info:

It’s an A to A run, so we start and finish at the beach. You can leave your things at the beach. Somebody will watch them for us. Bring food. It’s a BBQ so please bring some off the shelf finger food and drinks to share. Bring other things, like candles, lanterns, music, beach games etc. Open end time….After the circle we will stay at the beach until food and beer is finished.

Also, please don’t forget to carry your woollies, evenings are starting to get cooler now!!

T-shirts:
Yes, they exist and they are now ready. And they look really great. And they can be your’s! On this run we will sell them to you for the first time and all you need to do to reserve one is to email us back with your size. The price is RMB 80 for one and RMB 150 for two. What do you get for that: The material is a cotton/synthetics blend which is good for sports. The print is in good quality and won’t fade easily (so you can wear it many years). The shirts are actually big enough this time, so a L will fit someone like Straydog. The design: Simple and elegant. It has the “bottlecap” part of our QDHHH logo on the front, and writing on the back.

Please email us your size if you want to reserve a shirt! If you don’t email us then we can’t guarantee that we have your size available. Out of town / former QD Hashers: If you want one of the shirts then contact us. We will find a way to send you one.

Upcoming events:
Please mark your calendars and start training. On November 12 we will have the third Charity Staircase Run at the Crowne Plaza. That’s where we race up their staircase for a good cause. We have some cool prizes already and more will come, so everybody that joins (you can actually also walk up the stairs) has a chance to win something cool. First prize is a stay in the Crowne Plaza worth RMB 1800! More details to follow soon.
