Our next run is…
It’s 2018 2.0. Let’s stay the same. Let’s not make any resolutions. Let’s not be better people. Let’s get lost on trail. Let’s blame the high AQI for all our recent problems. Let’s yell at the hares for a shitty trail. Let’s give the bird to anyone doing “dry January.” Who needs to be sober for a month? NOT YOU. Let’s meet up anyway before we all go away or not go away for Chinese New Year.
This hutong romp will be the perfect way for you to end your Year of the Dog, with the wolf pack you hold near and dear to your heart.
Old school rules, hares raised on the spot

Out away on the edges of Beijing’s lies the lonely Huairou Hongluo Temple. Surrounded by beautiful streams and plenty of greenery, it is an idyllic place to explore and attempt to find inner peace and happiness. A top a lonely mountain is a pavilion with the two boards showing: 北望群山，南见弥勒”, which means “Look over the mountains to the north, and see Maitreya (happiness) to the south.”
At the beginning of 2019, you may have set some resolutions and you’ll definitely find some challenges. However, the Boxer Run can help you along in your search of happiness. Come join your amazing and experience hares Finger My Dough, Cock Chain, and Red Snatcher for the inaugural Box Run of 2019 on Saturday, January 19th and you’ll get to escape the confines of Beijing life and explore the serenity of Huairou Hongluo Temple.
Let Boxer Run be your first New Year’s resolution. Start off the year with a fun and slightly challenging Boxer Run with plenty of beer to encourage and fill you at the end and you’ll have success throughout the New Year!

Beijing! Beijing! What wonderful place to hash…
Beijing, Beijing, what a wonderful place to hash,
We have great fun dodging the shit and trash.
Our skies are never clear,
But we have cheaper beer.
We like our drinks,
Our singing stinks.
But welcome to the Beijing Hash!
