Not Your Average Runners…
Last Sunday I was almost knocked over by a gaggle of these strangely dressed runners with whistles seeming more eager than us to get into the bar. Why are these people running you ask?
There were, legit...fifteen people from this group just inside the door of this bar in the Old Port. I caught up with these two stragglers who agreed to taking a picture. Let me introduce you to PorMe H3, Portland's chapter of "Hash House Harriers," an extroverted bunch who bond over the fact that they "mostly" drink and "kinda" run lol.
They run through the streets dressed in bright colors, sometimes dresses and other funny outfits catching attention wherever they go. The drinking and running can be a bit overwhelming. It's really just a high endorphin drinking game where you must follow trails before you can drink. Hash Harriers are a private group but you too can partake if you love both drinking and running. I only enjoy one so i'm not allowed : ) You can find them on Facebook or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a word of advice...WATER!
