There’s a bit of everything on this boxer: an ancient temple, expansive mountaintop views, a glimmering golden Buddha, stupas, an active open-pit coal mine, a bit of shiggy, and a forest park in full bloom. Join your hares for an A-B trek through truly interesting terrain.

** Important note: the Beijing boxer hash is an off-road running hash going out to the hills around Beijing once a month. We usually aim for the second Saturday of each month, but may vary depending on the hares’ availability, currency exchange fluctuations, the score of the most recent Beijing guo’an game, the bus driver’s mood and other variable factors we have zero control over. We do not adjust for weather conditions (bring a towel, you won’t drown) nor pollution levels (they’re lower out in the mountains anyway). It’s ok to walk but not to lallygag. Keep moving … we’re a running hash. Heart attacks are not permitted. As we are out on mountain trails, it’s easy to get lost. If you’re too stupid to bring a phone with you (lim&s, looking at you!) And you get lost. We won’t ph*cking care, nor will we ph*cing pin you either. We may or may not send a search party looking for you. If we do, chances are it will consist primarily of rabid dogs and hungry wolves. That being said, we are glad to have you join us and hope you enjoy a great day! (by the way, no you won’t be back for your important dinner date bring them along instead)
