Lakeside Hash House Harriers has will this year (2014) celebrate it’s 30th year of hashing in Melbourne.
Originally started in Albert Park we run (and drink) from parks, pubs, houses, etc anywhere within a 30 km radius of Albert Park – except when it is further away.
We run on a Wednesday evening officially starting at 6:30pm but unofficially at 6:45pm – check out the Run Sheet and come along!
If you are new to hashing we generally refer to it as cooperative running rather than competitive running – in fact doing the latter will get you an extra drink in the circle after the run.
Our runs are usually 7-10kms and we always have a walkers trail for those who are injured or not capable/interested in running.
Someone once thought that Lakeside should have an official song. It was thought that it could echo with the sounds that were once heard around the Lakeside Oval (now defunct). Here is what they thought it would be like.

Beer, Beer, cherish the sight,
Lakeside will run by day and by night,
On to the check and to the check back
We’ll just keep running down the track
Though the storms be great or small
We’ll get back to the On-After all
Drinking, talking, running, walking
Lakeside Hash Harriers!
