About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Anatomy of a Hash Run

Amy Herauf

Bend Hash House Harriers


We are a "drinking club with a running problem". The Hash House Harriers have been in existence since the early 1900's and have evolved into over 1,000 groups world-wide. We are hard-working men and women who, in our free time run over hill and dale, following a flour trail that will eventually lead us to a garbage bag full of beer hidden somewhere in the woods. This "Beer Check" is where we socialize, laugh, avoid talking about the dreaded "W"(work), and just have grand old time. We are all avid runners and athletes outside of hashing and are involved in community events and volunteering. The camradere of this group is like nothing I have ever known. It's good clean fun (usually) wih some of the best people in Central Oregon.

To educate the public on the art of hashing, brief history/background, what we're all about. Don't panic and call Hazmat if you see flour marks on roads or trails(it's just the aftermath of a hash). Hashing has NOTHING to do with weed (sorry), we'll tell you the origin of its name. The haser phiosohpy/why we do it: "Hashing is a state of mind - a friendship of kindred spirits joined together for the sole purpose of reliving their childhood or fraternity days, releasing the tensions of everyday life, and generally, acting a fool amongst others who will not judge you or measure you by anything more than your sense of humor."
