 Without knowing her hash name I'd say this is a mere marketing
ploy.  Lots of people show up for a hash or two, but never take
to it.  Some, as one at a recent H4 hash, show up, do something
odd, in one recent instance, a headstand in a snowy parking lot
with the head resting on a recently removed wool coat, are
offended by the reaction to their stunt, the circle and the down
downs, get mad and leave, not to make another appearance.

I am the Race Director of the ODDyssey Half Marathon.  Having run
with the Harriers in the past, I believe our half marathon is a
perfect match for all area hash groups.  The ODDyssey aims to
make running fun.  Although a serious endurance race, our course
is full of optional twists and turns.

We would like to challenge the area hash groups to create their
own category for the ODDyssey.  Therefore, we have created a
special code for hash runners to enter upon registration.  If 100
hashers register by May 1st the ODDyssey will create a special
category of prizes just for hash runners.  A major element of the
ODDyssey is the costume contest, tapping into the tradition of
hash groups to run in drag and other various ensembles with 100
hashers we propose the hashers select a theme for costumes, such
as a dress category.

Please tell members to register for the race using the code -
HHHARRIER.  Online registration is open at

If you have additional creative ideas for the harrier category or
would like to be involved in other ways, please let us know.

Thank you,
