Chicago Hash House Harriers
Welcome to chicagohash.org, home of the Chicago Hash House Harriers. Here you will find everything you need to take part in the Chicago chapter of the world’s largest “drinking club with a running problem.” We meet every week of the year to run a 3 to 5 mile trail through the great city of Chicago’s streets, alleys, parks, and forest preserves. Afterwards we conduct an entertaining ceremony known as “the circle” where we enjoy cold beer and some good laughs.
We’re a very social group. Our members come from all walks of life, all age groups (21+) and all abilities of running from slow to fast. Our one and only goal is to have fun!
Look below for details on our upcoming runs or click on the links to the left to discover all kinds of info — past, present and future — about the Chicago Hash.
Welcome and On-On!

Venue: The Castle of Stab ‘Em & Slab ‘Em – 6530 S. University Ave.

Event: Snow Hash 14 – The Final Blizzard!
From the hares: This is it folks, the final, last-ever, ain’t-no-more snow hash! Stab ‘Em is selling her place and moving to Indiana. We’ll be doing what we did last year: 2 fire pits where we will grill sausages, a heated garage for warming up, and hopefully a big snowfall!
Transit Directions: Use the CTA Green Line to Cottage Grove (the terminal). Make sure the sign on the train says Cottage Grove and not Ashland/63rd. Walk south and east a few blocks to the start. We recommend that you do not take the Red Line. You can also take the Metra Electric line from Millennium Station at Randolph & Michigan to 63rd St. Use the exit at the south end of the platform (65th St.) and walk west to University Ave. Check the Metra website for schedules.
Chicago Hash House Harriers Hash Ball 2022
Saturday, February 12, 2022 – 7:00 PM
Hash Cash: $25
Event: CH3 Hash Ball
SAVE THE DATE – Details will be updated when they become available. Typically there is no trail and instead there is dinner and drinks, but with Omicron kicking everyone’s ass right now, who fucking knows. The regular weekly run will occur as scheduled the next day.
The reign of Silent Butt Deadly is finally cumming to an end – long live whoever is dumb enough to run for GM next. Join your favorite hashers in celebration of the exceptionally shitty year that was 2021 and to look forward to the exceptionally shitty year that 2022 will be.

Event: GM Handover (oh, and it’s Super Bowl Sunday!)
From the hares:
All of the events shown BELOW have already taken place so don’t go there! Or do go there. You might find an old trail (but no beer and no hashers!).

Hares: Justs Nick, Ernie, Chris, Bradley, Dan and Carlos
Event: The 10th Annual Just Justs Run
From the hares: After 10 fucking years, have we learned our lesson? No! The usual shitty trail, horrific cocktails, stupid songs, and likely cold, miserable weather. Two new gullible Justs have been conned into joining the melee and hopefully taking over this disaster. Circle will be outdoors. Shag wagon will be provided.
