Looe & Liskeard Hash House Harriers, Cornwall UK


hashing roots

L2H3 - the first hash to be formed in Cornwall, are continuing a tradition that has grown since 1938

The origins of hashing
Hash House Harriers started when Albert Stephen Ignatius Gispert, a British accountant working in what is now Malaysia, formed a group with fellow expatriates. The plans were laid for the forming of the Hash House Harriers at the Selangor Club Chambers, nicknamed the Hash House (due to the dismal food), Kuala Lumpur, in 1938. The continuing traditions of the Hash House Harriers are very different from other harriers groups; 'it is the emphasis on the social camaraderie and non-competitive running as well as the sport of following the trail that makes hashing something different again!'

All Hash House Harriers groups trace their lineage back to the Selangor Club Chambers, the Hash House, in 1938. Read more on http://harrier.net/presskit/shistory.html

The hash tree here is the bit to show our L2H3 roots.


Hashes around the world hold an annual Gispert Memorial Hash on or near the anniversary of the day he died, February 11th 1942.
