Hash runners

Hi...I have just landed in Riyadh, working at King Faisal Hospital. I believe I have read that there is a hash running group that heads off from near here into the desert- I am very interested in joining this but having trouble finding a contact. Any help would be appreciated...thanks v much :-)

Thanks for making me feel old! I had to look hash running up on Google to find out what it was. I thought you were talking about smuggling hashish!!!   :lol:

Guess that's how I got the nickname Jurassic Jimmy.

Cheers,

The Metawah shut them down.

Oh..that's disappointing. I was looking forward to running in the desert. Well thanks for the info

Shame, I would have been up for that

Hi Wendy,

I believe that @iamthere was referring to the "hashish smugglers" not about the less harmless variety of hash runners.  :lol:

Cheers,
James

Nope, I was trying to contact them through their Facebook page.The metawah shut down both the American Community of Riyadh. If you Pm me though I can give you another method of contacting the right people.

The HHH is around.

hi, I'm a new arrival in Riyadh, from UK. I'm working at King Faisal Specialist Hospital... I would be grateful to hear more about the Riyadh Hash and how to join. A dear old friend was one of the original 9 founder members of the original Hash House Harriers in Singapore in the 1930's... and I have been looking forward to an opportunity to join a group myself.
Thanks, Joe

I know this is old, but, Y'all, when I saw the post title I was like 'Hell naw!  The Saudi Gov is probably peeping on you now.  They don't have a secret 'codes' list for this stuff?!".  Ha, y'all made my night.   :lol:

If u found one, please let me join too,,,,

Hello Guys,

I believe the group is still active, they meet near to king faisal hospital, I will check with my friend he is a permanent member in the group.

Yes please. I lost contact with them. I was attending several times back then. I even gave them my email.
So please advice us if you do have some information. Thank you! :)

None of the hash groups have a public meeting point anymore, that stopped exactly a 54 weeks ago.

Too many pervs cruising up and down the street at the eye hospital caused problems. Your only option is now to be sponsored by a full member.

Yes, the desert trekkers (HHH) still meet, qualifications are expats only (verification required) with a sponsor, a sense of proper behavior, H20, and good boots.  No couch potatoes.

so how do i qualify and who is the first point of contact to start 'verification'?

Hi is the hash still active? Coul someone give me contact details?
Thanks, Joe

Hi All,

I am up for some desert trekking HHH style. if it's still active

Thanks

Gareth

Expats only. 

Family oriented.
