这是2016年10月15/16日,星期日,SH3 Runs #1449/50 的说明:

30th ANNIVERSARY RUN.

Hares: Sperminator, Time For Bed & Ezy Rider.

Back in 1986 Shanghai was not as developed or open as today. Pudong was rice paddies, only one airport, no high speed trains and only a handful of expat hangouts. Foreign exchange certificates (FECs) were the currency, but you could only shop in “the friendship store”. Mao suits were still the dress of the day and any strange behavior immediately attracted the attention of the PSB. Romantic relations between foreign men and local girls were not tolerated and western culture was frowned upon as taboo. There were effectively no taxis and the first subway line didn’t open until the 1990s. Only one bridge crossed the Huangpu so steam powered ferries were popular. So, imagine how revolutionary and surprising it must have been when Carl “Pavarotten” Tolson decided to form the Shanghai chapter of the Hash House Harriers. It must have been like nothing the locals had ever seen before. Colorfully dressed foreigners proudly and loudly running through the streets and somewhat openly drinking beer in public. The Beijing chapter had started in 1979 because of the Embassy presence, but as an aspiring commercial centre, conquering Shanghai was truly remarkable and ground breaking. Unfortunately it could not be sustained and eventually the hash became dormant, maybe because of the attention drawn from the rather unaccommodating and unwelcoming local authorities. Only when the consulates started to spring up a couple of years later did Robin “Silver Fox” Cox rekindle our favorite activity. But since 10 July 1989 there has NEVER been a hash missed on a Sunday afternoon, quite an achievement. So join us as we go down memory lane and try to relive some of the crazy hash activities of the past 30 years. oN oN!!
