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!

Our next run is on Sunday 6th November at 11.00am, from Noble Knott car park below Whinlatter Pass, grid ref 223244.

Noble Knott, Whinlatter

Noble Knott is 3/4 mile from Braithwaite on the road up to Whinlatter Pass. The car park is on the west side, hidden in trees, and is directly opposite a prominent layby/viewpoint which can be used for extra parking. Post-hash conviviality is at the Coledale Inn, Braithwaite.

News and Updates

We're in the papers!
For the October 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.

Hares Wanted
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 HalfDome 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' applies, confirm that the suspicions of MI5 were entirely justified and that Muscles might just have been 'The Fifth Man'.

New hash tee shirt

To commemorate 20 years of CH3 and the 250th Hash in January 2016 a new updated tee shirt has been commissioned. In sky-blue polyester (a change from the traditional yellow), it features a new logo designed by Happy Sac.

Please email hashing@cockermouthhhh.org.uk in case there are any left.
