Who are we?
The Hash House Harriers are an International Group founded in 1938 with over 70,000 active worldwide members. We are a social running (we have a lot of walkers as well!) group that focuses on on the social element rather than just running.
The Zürich Hash House Harriers were reformed May 16 1990 by Sara “Rolling Stone” Moss (Pittsburgh HHH) and David Wilson (Edinburgh HHH).
We meet regularly at weekends (once a month) and every Thursday evening for a run/walk as well as every last Friday for a social get together.
Our aim is to bring together local Swiss people and expats who want to socialize and have a bit of exercise at the same time. It’s a great forum to meet new friends and potentially travel internationally as there are a large number of International Events.
Members come in all shapes & sizes, races, ages and fitness levels. We cater for young and old, fast or slow, fit or ‘not-so-fit’! The main prerequisites are a sense of humor, willingness to meet new people,open-mindedness, tolerance and a general sense of fun. We are mainly English-speaking but most of us can speak (some) German..Most of our Swiss members are fluent in about 4 languages!
Our latest – and youngest – addition is the Zürich Hash House Horrors. This is a family hash, with child and pram friendly trails and child friendly circles. The HHHorrors meet on the last weekend of the month.
