Spend a day walking on the water in Tianjin with a legendary elephant. A zoologist estimates his ass to be approximately 80 years old, but we’ll find out when we walk on water with him and the rest of his Tianjin Hash Herd.

Walk on Water and Elephant Ass’s 80th Birthday regalia
You will buy your own round trip train ticket (through ticket office or train station)
We will buy same day train tickets at Beijing South Train Station (Line 4).
- Where to meet:
Beijing South Station – Starbucks on Lower level (where you come off the subway—not the Starbucks on the 2nd floor) at 9:30 a.m. sharp.
If you arrive late, you’re totally on your own.
We will buy the following train tickets (each person, individually; each one way ticket costs 54.5 RMBs—bring your Identification Card/Passport):
– C 2013 Leaves Beijing South Station 10:15; Arrives Tianjin Station 10:48
– C 2146 Leaves Tianjin Station 22:27; Arrives Beijing South Station 23:00
At Tianjin Station, we will take a 5 mins. taxi to the TEDA light rail station.
We take Line 9 to TEDA (approximately 40-60 minutes).
We then take a 5 mins. taxi ride to Jack’s Pub #1 where we meet up with all the Tianjin Hashers around 1:00 p.m. and leave for the run site together at 1:30 p.m.
Total travel time (each way): about 2 hours–and we avoided the bus!
Final destination in TEDA:
JACKY´S PUB #1:
Location in TEDA, on 2nd Avenue, Ruiyuan Block 25-4
- HASH CASH:
Run and local bus to run site in Teda: 60 RMBs
Birthday dinner bash: 60 RMBs
Round trip taxi in TEDA, light rail: 50 RMBs/person round trip
Therefore, plan on about 110 RMBS for roundtrip train and 170 RMBs in Tianjin—about 280 RMBs total
