They have tracked 3 run sites, all of which are great hash running territory.
By the end of January 2017 they will add a "5 star track" that is expected to be most spectacular in every respect. What this "5 Star Track" actually is still remains a mystery that will be unveiled soon.

Fiji has won the right to host an international event for diehard runners from around the world and will attract an additional 4000 tourists to boost the economy and tourism.
The 21st InterHash Super Meet will be held in Nadi in May 2018 for the first time in the history of InterHash and will be a 4-6 day event.
InterHash is a biennial event and is the peak event for international running club Hash House Harriers from around the world to meet, run and socialise.
A small but dedicated team of about 22 Hash House Harriers from the 5 Hash clubs in Fiji led by Nadi doctor and Hash Grand Master Dr Ram Raju and lawyer and ex Grand Hash Master, Babu Singh, have tirelessly campaigned for the last 10 years for InterHash to be awarded to Fiji.
Minister for Investment, Trade and Tourism ,Hon Faiyaz Koya, flew into Bali to campaign with Team Fiji Hash and address the 6000 strong attendees with the support of Fiji Airways marketing representatives Mr Mitieli Vodonaivalu and spectacular and vibrant performances by Vou Dance group.
Team Fiji’s bid is a significant win against experienced and larger representation bids by previous successful InterHash hosts, Medan (Indonesia) and Kuching (Malaysia).
Fiji InterHash will be head quartered in Nadi and running events for the expected 4000 running enthusiasts will include Sabeto Mountains, Nausori Highlands, Abaca, Natadola and the Coral coast to honour the true adventure seeking spirit of the Hash House Harriers.
The Fiji Hash clubs –Nadi, Lautoka Hospital Hash, Suva and Pacific Harbour, led by Dr Ram Raju will be meeting with all stakeholders to begin planning and co-ordination of one of the largest single international sports events to be ever staged in Fiji.
