Hash Details!

Welcome to AAHHH, the highest Hash in Africa and one of the highest in the world, at 2400m above sea level. Some call Hash ‘The drinking club with a running problem.’ Perhaps this is true! Come and decide for yourself. We meet every Saturday afternoon, rain or shine, at 2pm / 14h00 (simint sa’at bityopia) in the Hilton Hotel car park, to run (or walk) somewhere nice outside Addis Ababa. Transportation is provided for those without.

We are a Family Hash: we welcome locals and expatriates, young and old, female and male, runners and walkers. We follow a paper trail laid in the morning by 'hares'. The size of the weekly Addis Hash outing ranges from about 60-90 runners and walkers, from a pool of regular Hashers numbering over 400. The run (and a shorter trail for walkers) takes about 60-75 minutes. It is followed by a circle to welcome newcomers and returnees, usually returning to Addis Ababa by 6.30pm (asra-hulet takul). The cost is 30 birr, while newcomers pay a first-time fee of 60 birr. We use this money to subsidise drinks and special events. Further info: +251-911-206908.

Attention all Addis Hashers!

 The Addis Hash is very privileged to have been chosen to have its Hash Run of Saturday 13 April be filmed by a film crew coming from Geneva, Switzerland.  The Director of the film is Mr. Pierre Morath and your Mismanagement Committee has decided to invite the Director and his crew to dinner this Friday, 12 April at 7:00pm at the Dessalech Cultural Restaurant, on the road off Bole Road in front of Millennium Hall. 

ALL ADDIS HASHERS ARE ALSO INVITED TO MEET DIRECTOR MORATH AND THE FILM CREW!  Please come and show our visitors some Hash hospitality.  However, this is NOT a Hash Cash-sponsored event and everyone is responsible for meeting their own costs for   food and drink.

DIRECTIONS:  when coming off the Ring Road, at the large Bole Road Roundabout go down Bole Road towards town and continue on past Millennium Hall.  Make a U-turn at your first opportunity and return towards the Roundabout.  Turn right on the last road off Bole Road before you reach the Roundabout. Continue about 100 meters and "Dessalech Kittfo and Traditional Hall" is on your right.  Parking is available around the restaurant.  Please pay careful attention as both sides of the Bole Road Boulevard are being used by cars going in both directions!

 The film crew will be filming our Hash Run on Saturday - all Hashers are urged to come and wear a Hash T-shirt, preferably our generic yellow T-shirt with green and red sleeves or an Africa Hash 2011 T-shirt.  Hashers are also encouraged to RUN on Saturday, as this is a film about RUNNING, not walking! 

 The film is no ordinary documentary film but a feature length film to be shown in cinemas around the world about the history of non-competitive running in various countries including the US and Ethiopia.  Our own "Lost and Found" Tamini, who has written a book about running, is responsible for encouraging Director Morath to come to Ethiopia and film our Hash.  Many thanks to "Father Christmas" Tamini - we now know the meaning of your name!!
