HASHING STARKERS – It’s been said that hash mores are decidedly different in the United States. Perhaps it’s a desire to cast off the yoke of cultural puritanism that leads at least some Americans to hash in their birthday suits. In any case, opportunities abound with warmer weather. And perhaps this little number from last year will entice you to attend: http://bit.ly/1gSPqqc

THINKING ABOUT STARTING A HASH? There are many ways to go about it, and this discussion thread may provide some helpful ideas: http://bit.ly/1oXkVj8


Hashing in Kings Landing and beyond the wall? Croatia, with its beautiful coastline and islands, is a wonderful destination in its own right, but the fact that King’s Landing, Qarth and other "Game of Thrones" locations are filmed there make the area a must-see for fans of the HBO series. If you hurry, you can join the Dalmatian Hash Cruise (14-20 June 2014). Additional details: http://bit.ly/1klfo55 and http://bit.ly/1nFaLXf.  But if White Walkers and the Land of the Nights Watch is more your style, contact Automatic Balls, who is in the planning stages of a Hash Adventure in Iceland: http://bit.ly/1kexA1z

“The Singha River Kwai Trophy International 2014”


Record international attendance for the most popular Adventure race in South East Asia!


Part of the Amazing Thailand International Adventure Race Championships Series, the 9th edition of this world-renowned race is supported by Singha, the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Kanchanaburi province.


Scheduled for May 31 and hosted at Felix River Kwai Resort and Spa, the race will explore the magnificence of the world renowned Kwai River valley.


Adventure Racing is a highly visual and dynamic sport genre, stretching competitors to their limits. It is a sport that is rapidly capturing the imagination of sportsmen and women in Thailand and around the world.


“The Singha River Kwai Trophy International 2014 consists of 2 days of activities including:


•             An Expo village where local communities, athletes and tourists will be able to meet in a friendly atmosphere.

•             Parties and VIP hospitality.

•             A spectacular Adventure Race starting near the River Kwai Bridge.

•             Shows, dances and entertainment.

•             Gala dinner and trophies presentation.


165 teams from around the world are officially registered which makes the event the largest adventure race ever not only in Thailand but in South East Asia.


“This success and sudden increase in popularity (115 teams last year) is amazing” explains Serge Henkens the Race director.

“We did not expect this and are very much delighted. We can probably explain it by the fact that the society is changing in this part of the world… More free time, increasing concern for health and well-being, rising environmental awareness, return to conviviality, back to nature etc…..”

“After the recent years boom of road running, people are now ready and willing to have fun off road and far away from the city fumes and pollution. “



“Kachanaburi is a place of historical significance of course but it also has stunning scenery to offer. Located not far from Bangkok, the province has all the ingredients for memorable outdoor fun: lakes, jungle, mountains, caves, a very rich fauna and flora and, of course, the Kwai River.  The perfect recipe for great Adventure Racing” says Serge Henkens, the Race Director.

“We offer 2 divisions, Adventure (easier course) and Extreme (longer course), the race is therefore really accessible to everyone!”


The race has grown in popularity over the years and has become the most sought after Adventure Race in South East Asia” concludes Henkens.



Adventure Race information:

2 divisions:

·         Adventure (Shorter course for newcomers and W.E. warriors)

·         Extreme (Longer course for confirmed athletes and experienced Racers)

Disciplines: Running, Kayaking, Biking, Swimming

Teams of 2 racers


Men, Women, Mixed, Masters Men (over 80 years combined). Seniors Men (over 100 years combined), Students Boys, Students Girls

Chennai Hash celebrates its 14th Anniversary outside India in Kathmandu, capital city Nepal, on Wednesday-8th – Saturday 11th October 2014. Most of our anniversaries run are always out of Chennai, within India & this will be our 4th overseas trip.


The committee has returned from Kathmandu & Chitwan, Nepal after checking out hotels, transport & other details for our 14th Anniversary in October’14. We have finalised hotels at Kathmandu & Chitwan; however, since we were unable to get one hotel to accomodate all of us under one roof we are taking 2 hotels. Also, since Chitwan doesn’t have too many cottages, we have limited to 130 persons only.  The first 60 registrations will get to stay at Barahi Jungle Lodge, Chitwan. We are awaiting room-rates from our travel agent in Kathmandu; and the registration fee will be out by end of March or early April ’14.

Some History of Kathmandu:-

Kathmandu is the capital and largest urban agglomerate of Nepal. The city stands at an elevation of approximately 1,400 metres (4,600 ft) in the bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley of central Nepal. It is surrounded by four major mountains: Shivapuri, Phulchoki, Nagarjun, and Chandragiri. Kathmandu Valley is part of three districts (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur), has the highest population density in the country, and is home to about a twelfth of Nepal's population. As the largest (and pretty much the only) city in the country, Kathmandu also feels like another developing-world city rushing into a modern era of concrete and traffic pollution. Take a walk in the backstreets, however, and the capital's amazing cultural and artistic heritage reveals itself in hidden temples overflowing with marigolds, courtyards full of drying chillis and rice, and tiny hobbit-sized workshops largely unchanged since the Middle Ages. Kathmandu has been a traveller’s mecca since the 1960s but these days you're less likely to see a tie-dyed hippy in search of enlightenment than a well-heeled Gore-Tex-clad tourist in search of a good espresso. With tourist numbers down and political tensions up, the last few years have been uncertain, yet residents have retained a good-humoured self-respect. Kathmandu is well worth a week of your time, but it's too easy to spend too much time stuck in touristy Thamel. Enjoy the Internet cafés, the Western music and the lemon cheesecake, but make sure you also get out into the 'real Nepal', before your time runs out. It is one of the World's most expensive cities.



Chitwan is about approx 145 kms from Kathmandu, time takes will about 5/6 hrs by surface. Chitwan literally means “heart of the jungle”. In recent years Chitwan tops the list of things to do in Asia. It is a truly wildlife adventure of a different kind – jungle safaris on elephant backs or jeeps, birdwatching, canoe rides and jungle walks. The Chitwan National Park is Asia’s best preserved conservation area, where wildlife thrives and their habitats remain intact. The park lies in the Inner Terai lowlands and consists of Sal forests, tall elephant grasslands, hills, ox-box lakes and flood plains of the Narayani, Rapti and Reu rivers.Enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Natural) in 1984, the park spreads over an area of 932 sq. km.



October and November are the best months to visit Kathmandu. The weather and visibility during this monthare perfect for trekking and outdoor activities. The average daytime temperatures are around 20°C (68°F):  perfect to enjoy hikes and walks around the town without getting sweaty. October has also a fair chance of rain, however if it does rain it does not lastfor more than a couple of hours and is usually followed by clear weather.


What to Wear & Bring:-

It is advisable to carry some warm and light jackets as the evenings can get very chilly, running shoes, mosquito repellent,camera, your specific medicines, and of course ..you’re  Hash Spirit!!!


Language spoke:-

Pali is national language but English is widely spoken. The ethnic groups speak various language and dialects

The second edition of this already popular and unique race will take place in the magnificent Singha Park in Chiang Rai on April 27, 2014.

“After last year big success, we are proud to bring back this type of obstacle and mud kind of race in the beautiful Singha Park in Northern Thailand. This is the perfect place for hosting this type of adventure race” says Serge Henkens, director of Active Management Asia and race organizer.

“This race is not about winning, it is about fun, teamwork, camaraderie and friendship” continues Henkens. “Are you ready to get wet and dirty?”

“In parallel to the main event, we will also offer a 3km fun run for children and families. This is a family event where we’ll see people from many different countries, cultures, colors, and ages, get together in a friendly and festive atmosphere”


What is an Obstacle Race?

Obstacle racing is a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges (obstacles). They combine mud and trail runs.  Obstacles include, but are not limited to, climbing over walls, carrying heavy objects, traversing bodies of water (but not swimming), crawling under nets or through drainage pipes. Many obstacles are similar to those used in military training, whilst others are unique to obstacle racing, and are employed throughout the course to test endurance, strength, speed and dexterity. Races vary in both distance and challenge level, combining trail running and cross country running.


The course is a 7.5km lap and includes 10 obstacles

We are offering 2 distances for soloists

·         7.5km ( 1 lap-10 obstacles)

Teams: 30km (4 laps- 40 obstacles) Team consists of 5 runners. Each of the 4 laps must be completed by 2 runners from the team. It is totally up to the team to decide which 2 runner will complete each lap. (E.g. a same runner can run the five laps as long a 2 runners from the team are running together)
