"We are the Quorn Hash House Harriers...."

We run for fun in the Nottingham-Derby-Leicester area though you don't have to run, it just gets you back to the pub faster. We know how to enjoy ourselves - competitiveness is frowned upon. Hash groups like ours are often described as a drinking club with a running problem.

Who are we?

We are a hashing group that welcomes all - young or old, walkers or runners, male or female. Our regular trails are on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month with extra trails when we do joint trails with neighbouring hashes. Our area covers the countryside between Nottingham-Derby-Leicester though winter trails may be run in urban areas.

History of QH3

QH3 was founded by Michelle 'Mango' Wilson (sister of hash grandee Tim 'Magic' Hughes). Run 1 was on 29 March 1987 from the Free Trade, Sileby. Many of the founding hashers came from around Quorn, a Leicestershire village famous for its Hunt. Quorn was an appropriate name for a club involving hounds chasing a hare.

The hash trail

The hare sets off laying the hash trail before the designated start time. If the hare sets off 10-30 minutes before the rest of the pack, this is called a 'live hare'. More often than not on the Quorn Hash, the trail is laid several hours before or even the previous day if the weather permits. The QH3 uses flour to mark its trail. THIS IS NOT DOG POISON!!!

Annual QH3 Report

2021 (runs 1026 to 1040)

Another year affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and we managed just 15 trails in 2021. Tables and maps relating to the 2021 hash trails and statistics can be downloaded from our Records page.

The year finally got underway with a trail set from the The Leisure Centre, Bramcote, by Barritone. The next few hashes were also from non-pub locations as Covid restrictions still applied. The hash adapted to social picnics after the trail, a notable one including IP and Sweet Pea's freshly cooked hot dogs. The summer picnic returned to Rushcliffe Country Park on a scorching hot day, again proving to be our most well attended event of the year

We also welcomed some new and experienced hashers who keep coming back for more, namely, Lockerman, Long Dong Silver and Golden Hole. The latter two had their introduction to Quorn hashing cruelly interrupted in March 2020 after just one trail by the first lockdown.

The year ended on a high with Wallington's Xmas trail from the Boat Inn in Loughborough. Many dressed as Santa Clause trotted around Loughborough handing out crackers and sweeties to young children. We also sang carols from the bandstand and had a beer stop in a pub with no beer.

Well done to Wallington and Ballcrusher who turned up to all 15 QH3 trails in 2021.
