Spring is the season of blossoming flowers, changes in scenery, and new beginnings. However, in order for the novelty of Spring to exist, there must be events that precede our contemporary experiences. As the great C.L. Smooth said, let’s reminisce for a spell, or shall I say think back on how we got here by celebrating anniversaries for some of our beloved (shitty) Hashers: In May 2007, MySpace was the shit; Netflix (and chill) had just begun streaming; the first iPhone took all our money; and All Asshole, No Sack initiated his downward spiral after graduation. In May 2003, the world’s first cloned horse and deer were born; it was the Year of the Goat; we Found Nemo; and it was the last time anyone laughed at a joke told by Little Red Shitting Hood.But most importantly, in May 1984, Reagan was president; the internet was unheard of; mobile phones weighed a kilogram; and John The Baptist started Hashing.

So Cum one, Cum all, and Cum celebrate the (almost over-the-hill) Hashversary of our shittiest hare, John The Baptist, as we stumble through Taoranting Park, Yongdingmen, and (nearby) the Temple of Heaven on a gloriously shitty trail!

As usual, this is an adult activity in which we behave like children so expect to see nonsense, licentiousness, a modest level of drunkenness and considerable rude behaviour going on. There may be vomiting on this occasion. Don’t be offended; we’re always like that and if you’re here you’re doing it too. For all of those reasons this isn’t a kid-friendly activity so – unless you’re table 1 – best stay home. More regular members of society are of course very welcome and can of course take part, but be polite, don’t be purposefully rude and remember that if you’re running there’s no winner.
