What’s It All About?
At Bali Hash House Harriers 2 there are usually 2 trails you can choose from; a Long Trail for runners and a Short Trail for walkers. A split between the two trails will be marked with an S for Short and an L for Long.
As a general rule of thumb:
- Long Trails are usually around a 2 Hour walk at a brisk pace (approx. 9-11 KM’s)
- Short Trails are generally around an Hours walk at a brisk pace (approx. 4-6 KM’s)
- Please note terrain can negate distance on a Hash run
- Final note, if you plan to take the Long Trail and WALK there is a possibility that you could get back after dark. Please use common sense, bring a torch, note the name of the run site and STAY ON PAPER
After the runs, we have open bar for the beverage of your choice: Beer, Water or Soft Drinks. This is followed by the “Circle”, which is where we gather around and say thank you to the Hares, welcome back old members who have been away, and welcome visitors and visiting hashers.

“Walk on Water & Run on Beer”!
We generally runs point A to point A runs, meaning we start and finish at the same place. Just prior to the commencement of a run with Bali Hash House Harriers 2, the Hash Master will hold a pre-run briefing to provide you with information relevant to the run.
It’s important to pay attention so that you’re aware of any hazards and get other key insights to make your run better and safer. Do note that we sometimes traverse rather slippery and/or steep slopes, so do try to wear appropriate footwear and clothing that does not restrict your movement. We all want to have a happy, healthy and safe run, so please be aware of your surroundings.
If you want to take some photos, please stop for a moment to do so and then continue on. Taking your eyes off of the trail could result in a mis-step or even a fall.
Finding Your Way Around
The objective is simple: follow the paper until you get back to the finish. “Checkbacks” are marked with an X which means that the trail ends and you have to go back and find the trail which will be off to one side or the other.
A circle means “Check Around” in which case you have to go in one of 2 or 3 directions to find the paper. If you want to ask somebody the correct direction, you will yell “Are You?” meaning Are you on Paper. The proper reply would be “On paper” if you are, or “Checking” if you are not.
It’s also advisable to note the name of the run site in case you get lost so you can ask someone for directions.
And remember, this is a hash run and we will adventure off the beaten track. So you might get wet or dirty or muddy (or all three). To that end, we recommend that you bring a change of clothes for after the run so you can enjoy the circle in dry clothing.
