Hash House Harriers

The Hash House Harriers as we know it today ("a drinking club with a running problem") was founded in Malaysia by Albert Stephen Ignatius Gispert. The first run was held in in December 1938. Hashing was suspended during World War II, but then reestablished after peace returned. It was not long before the hash began slowly spreading around the world. Former members of the original Hash House Harriers started a hash in 1947 near Milan, Italy, but it wasn't until 1962 that the next group was formed in Singapore. The Singapore Hash was gradually followed by others until in 1973 there were approximately 35 hashes in 14 countries. Subsequently, the hash began spreading like wildfire and the number of hashes soon climbed into the hundreds by the early 1980s and some 1,700 active hashes in over 180 countries by 1999.
