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!

Kick off the Chicago summer in style with our annual Memorial Day Hash celebration. This year the calendars synced up perfectly, and this weekend will also include our 2100th trail. Not too shabby. If you join us for the whole weekend you’ll get access to three trails over the course of the long weekend Or you can rego for just the main even on Sunday. No matter which option you choose, you’ll get trails and circles complete with food and beverages, as well as a giveaway, and all the awesome extra shenanigans that go along with hashing in Chicago. We’ll also have the options of purchasing an extra commemorative shirt from the event for the low-low price of just $15.
If you’re attending the Main Event on Sunday, please consider taking part in our annual pot luck – bring any side dish to share with your fellow hashers and we’ll give you $5 in cold cash money back the day of the event. This helps us keep the price of the hash down, lets you show off your cooking skills, and makes sure that everyone has something to eat that they’re actually excited about. What a steal!

Beer in a Box 2016 – Sunday 4/2 – 9:00 AM
Venue: Buckingham Fountain
Hash Cash: Whatever drink tickets you can get the racists to donate to the cause
From da GM: Once again, Chicago hashers will be gathering just north of Buckingham Fountain for our Post-Shamrock Shuffle “Beer in a Box” celebration. We start as soon as the runners finish running 8k. Wave 1 starts at 8:30AM; wave 2 starts at 9:15AM. You could be drinking by 9AM, but the majority of the group will probably start gathering closer to 9:30-10AM. The group usually congregates just north of Buckingham Fountain along the fence. Be sure to ask people for beer tickets as you approach the finish line and racists leave for their cars.
