What is the Hash?

The Hash House Harriers were created by British Colonial officers based in Malaysia in the year 1938. They founded the first group with several goals in mind. To work off the excesses of the week, to work up a good thirst and to make their older members feel younger than they are.

Hashing life was interrupted when Malaysia was invaded during world war two but resumed in 1946 and has been going strong ever since.


Hashing came to Taiwan with the founding of the Taipei Hash in 1973. From the Taipei Hash countless other Hash kennels have been formed including ourselves the Taiwan Hash House Harriers. We were founded in 1975 and up untill December of 2020 ran under the name China Hash House Harriers. The name was changed by outgoing GM Vaginal Plumbing to properly reflect our identity as a Taiwanese Hash. 

In Taiwan you can find dozens of hash groups operating on different schedules with a broad range of cultures. If Taiwan Hash is not for you fret not you are sure to find what you are looking for.
