Everyone knows the best time to visit tombs is immediately after they’ve been swept! And since it’s been ten and a half years since the Boxer Hash last visited these particular tombs, your hares figured it was about time to head east. We’re visiting our favorite Manchu emperors Qianlong, Kangxi, Ci Xi, and the whole gang out at the Eastern Qing Tombs.

Saturday, April 21st
Meet at 9:30 a.m. Departure at 10:30 a.m. sharp! No exceptions coz it’s far away yo!
150 RMB will get you a boxer trail, snacks, circle, bottomless drinks, and a bash!
You can get breakfast at XL and a Bloody Mary, so bring extra cash for brekkie and any drinks at XL Bar after the run.
What to Bring:
SPECIAL NOTE: Bring your own water bottle because the boxer isn’t gonna supply plastic water bottles any longer! We will bring a big water for you to refill.
Your cell phone. Sunscreen. Running shoes. A sense of adventure. A sense of direction. A sense of humor.
XL Bar 1-022 Shoukai Bojun Nanqu, Xindong Lu (新东路首开铂郡南区1-022).
It’s on Xindong Lu in the complex just north of Heaven and south of Lily’s American Diner. To find it, try to go to Heaven and then go the other way.
** 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)
