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.”

More info from the Qingdao HHH:

Run No. 307, December 22, 2012

Hare/s: Straydog “Chris” and Fabio

Costs: Run: RMB 10 for hashers, harriettes and horrors (who have to be 10 years or older to attend our runs) for bus & beers/water – Horrors MUST BE ACCOMPANIED by one or both parents on ALL OUR RUNS, unaccompanied Horrors will be sent back home !!

Dinner: is optional and will be at an added cost if you decide to stay! Horrors attending our dinners will share the costs equally like everybody else (read, NO DISCOUNTS!)

Meeting Place and Time: PLEASE PAY ATTENTION to the NEW start time in Winter – Meet at Hotel Crowne Plaza lobby at 1 PM for a 1.15 PM SHARP hare off!!
We will walk over to the starting point, Fu Shan Suo (浮山所) Bus stop in front of Carrefour on HK road (家乐福名达店), from the Crowne Plaza and we’ll leave the lobby sharp as above. If you prefer to go directly to the starting point then be there before 1:40

Run starts as soon as we all reach the start point, approximately by 1. 40 PM!

Hare/s say/s: This will be an A to A run. After arriving at the Carrefour we will make use of their free lockers and deposit the Secret Santa presents and any bags etc there. The run itself will be around 11km with a walker / runner split. It will show you the open and the hidden gems of the downtown area and you will discover new areas right in the centre of Qingdao and the hares have other surprises planned for you as well. The run will finish again at the Carrefour and after the circle we will relocate to a nearby restaurant. There we will have a fun game of Secret Santa – which means that every Hasher has to bring a present to this run! The present should cost around RMB 30 and please wrap it in a normal newspaper. Do not write your name on it. The presents will be handed out during the dinner time.
