Hashing - Drinking Extreme Sports

"Started in Malaysia by colonial British Officers in the 1930s, hashing involves lots of running, and more importantly, lots of drinking.....

Generally, a five-mile course is mapped out. The course stops every quarter mile at a check where the course splits into three or four potential routes. There is only one correct route that the runners must follow. At some checks, alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks are provided. This continues to the final destination, usually a bar, where runners relive the their hashing adventures." - Cited from HERE

"It all started in 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when A.S. Gispert, a British civil servant whose hash club nickname is "G", rounded up a group of men to go for a run through the jungle. Their jaunt was followed by a beer, or two, at a local haunt called the Hash House, where they served corned-beef hash. Today, hashing has more than 1,900 clubs around the globe from China to Mexico, attracting men and women, young and old, rich and poor who share a preference for a little fun with their run." - Cited from HERE
