In the heart of 龙云山,high and steep,

There lived a dragon, not awake, but asleep.

His scales were coated with soot and smear,

A peculiar creature, fond of beer.

Amidst rocks and echoes clear,

He’d roar, “To ale, my dear!”

With every gulp and every cheer,

A dirty dragon, without fear.

His breath, a mix of hops and fire,

A tavern’s dream, a knight’s dire mire.

Beneath the moon’s soft, silver gleam,

He’d dream of pints in a foamy stream.

No stream nor shower could cleanse his tail,

For he loved the dirt, a grimy veil.

Yet, in his heart, pure joy did dwell,

In mountain heights, where eagles yell.

So here’s to the dragon, dirty and grand,

With a beer in his claw and ash on the land.

May his legend spread far, from peak to sand,

A beast so merry, with a pint in hand.

One day, in the dragon’s realm, where wild winds blew,

Three lost hashers were in search of a brew.

Through forests thick and valleys deep,

They stumbled on the dragon, in his sleep.

With hearts of courage, eyes alight,

They sought their ale, lost in the night.

The dragon woke, with a curious gaze,

Amused by these humans, in his mountainous maze.

“Join me,” he roared, “in my feast of beers,

For in these mountains, there’s no room for fears.”

Together they laughed, under starry spheres,

A bond formed over brews, transcending years.

In unity, they found their treasure’s worth,

A tale of friendship, of mirthful rebirth.

With the dragon as guide, through peaks and firth,

Three lost hashers, found joy and hearth.

But the dragon, with a twinkle in his eye,

Devised a game under the twilight sky.

“Tug of war,” he declared with a rumbling roar,

“A test of strength, with legends of yore.”

The hashers grinned, accepting the test,

With a rope in hand, they gave it their best.

Against the dragon, they pulled with might,

Straining in the cool, moonlit night.

The earth trembled beneath their feet,

As mountains echoed with beats of elite.

Yet, in this struggle, laughter found its way,

Binding their spirits, come what may.

In this playful contest of push and pull,

They found respect, their hearts full.

With each tug, their camaraderie grew,

A memory cherished, forever true.

*** 

The Beijing boxer hash is an off-road running hash going out to the hills around Beijing once/twice a month. We usually aim for the second/third Saturday of each month, but may vary depending on the hares’ availability and other variable factors we have zero control over. Be prepared for variable weather conditions: snow, ice, heatwave, storms. 

We’re a running hash. It’s ok to walk but not to lallygag. Keep moving… Heart attacks are not permitted. As we are out on mountain trails, it’s easy to get lost. Please bring a phone with you! 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)
