What is "HASHING"?
Hashing originated in December 1938 in Selayang Quarry, Selangor, then in the Federated Malay States (now Malaysia), when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run, in a fashion patterned after the traditional British paper chase or "hare and hounds", to rid themselves of the excesses of the previous weekend. These officers created the term "Hash House Harriers" after the Selangor Club Annex, where several of the original hashers happened to live and dined, known as the "Hash House". Now, it has become a worldwide running club with a heavy drinking emphasis (so, in fact, most members prefer to stroll around the course, laid down by someone acting as the "Hare" for the trail). Everyone then meets up, after many course drinks, for a final drinking challenge at a designate 'Hash House'.
