Our next run is on Sunday 5th March at 11.00am from Great Broughton, grid ref: 081313, and afterwards at either the Punch Bowl in Great Broughton or the Ship at Dovenby - watch this space!
The meeting point is the parking area immediately on the left side of the road after the bridge when you drive into Broughton from the A66, parking for about 7-8 cars with overspill within Broughton Park.
The route is a bit 'soft' so runners should bring a change of shoes & socks and walkers should have wellies.
PS - keep an eye on the local news as to whether the road from the A66 has reopened following emergency work on the gas main. I'll look to issue a "Hash Update" just in advance of the event with clear directions to get there!

News and Updates
We're in the papers!For the October 2016 hash we were joined by Nicole Regan who writes a running column for the local Times & Star newspaper. She reported her experiences in the T&S Oct 14th edition and also on the GoActive website.
If you've not set a Hash before but want to give it a try, shout up and we'll get one of the existing Hares to show you the ropes.
CH3 Milestones and Anniversaries
In his role as Hash Archivist, Leopard Thong has compiled a list of all the hashes in all the world - well at least those that we have put on over the years. To see the dates, locations and Hares, visit the Hash Trash page.
Founding Fathers Reunion
In preparation for the 250th Hash (Dec 2015 but postponed till Jan 2016 due to the floods), Founder Members Phil Davies (Muscles), John Knox (Yardfowl) and Barry Johnson (The Hasher with no name) met up with Leopard Thong and Half Dome to talk about old times and to look forward to the 250th run.
Yardfowl, the original On-Sec, later found some copies of the first issues of Hash News, which will appear soon on the Hash trash page. These papers, now released after the '20 year rule' was applied, confirm that the suspicions of MI5 were entirely justified and that Muscles might just have been 'The Fifth Man'.
To commemorate 20 years of CH3 and the 250th Hash in January 2016 a new updated tee shirt was commissioned. In sky-blue polyester (a change from the traditional yellow), it features a new logo designed by Happy Sac.

Welcome to CH3
Welcome to Cockermouth Hash House Harriers
We meet at 11am on the first Sunday of the month, anywhere roughly within a half-hour drive of Cockermouth, and anyone is welcome to just turn up. Have a look at the Receding Hare Line below to find details of forthcoming Hashes.
We have running and walking groups (known as packs) and a normal hash will last around one and a half hours (give or take an hour...!!), and taking part costs £2.
What is Hashing?
If you have no idea what hashing is, checkout the rules here, and take a look at the UK Hash House Harrier Website for more info as we are far too idle to have a stab at a proper explanation!
