- Boulder dates are usually held at 2pm Sunday or 6:30pm Monday, at the
- Although we prefer hashes actually in/around Boulder, anything along the US-36 corridor or in Golden is OK, too.
- Hares keep $4 of the $5 collected per person to cover
costs for beer-check beer, on-in beer, and food. The other dollar goes to Birdman for the general hash fund. Most hares usually spend a little out-of-pocket, too, but if you're planning a big party, talk to Birdman about using some extra BH3 funds.
- Hares should announce their trails TWO WEEKS in advance by e-mail and
by flyer, to allow time to get the word out to everyone. Please mention if
your trail is (1) dog friendly; (2) "easy" (30 to 45 minutes, flat terrain,
with a dry on-in and bathrooms), "moderate" (about 1 to 1.5 hours, small
hills, gulleys, shiggy, and a bar at the end), or "hard" (anything by
Birdman, anything more than 1.5 hours, with mountains, deep icy water, a
six-pack for a beer check, and down-downs at a truck in a cow pasture).
- Since the hare's directions to the start always SUCK, try to include a cell
phone number for those who can't find the start or get lost on trail. Also
include an actual address in your announcement, so people can MapQuest it if
they want. You can't mapquest "turn left at the drunk guy on the corner"
but you CAN mapquest "123 Hasher Lane, Colorado Springs, CO." Always
include the town, since not everyone knows where "Lazula Street and Gunny
Drive" is (Fort Collins? C. Springs? Lakewood? etc.)
- The HARES are responsible for contacting the proper
authorities (USUALLY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, FIRE DEPARTMENT, OR OPEN SPACE
OFFICIALS) at least 4 days before the hash.
If your hash is within Boulder County, notify BOULDER P.D. SPECIAL
EVENTS COORDINATOR COLLEEN BERRY. Also call Boulder Dispatch (303) 441-4444 at the last minute, because then the message gets to where it needs to be, when it needs to be there, in stead of relying on some internal commmunication.
For hashes on Boulder open space and mountain park property, contact
Steve Armsted (head ranger) at 303-413-7907. They are familar with
hashers, and mostly they prefer flagging tape, chaulk (chalk powder is ok)
because their wildlife biologist gets upset about the flour being edible.
Also absolutely NO glass containers on BOPMS, they really don't care about
the beer. For now being off trail is also quasi legal, but there is a move to make it
When calling Lafayette and Superior PD's, just tell them you and some
freinds are out playing "hares and hounds" and you just wanted them to know
it's flour and sidwealk chaulk on the pavement. If you start mentioning a
running event and beer, and they start wanting you to get a $50
alcohol/special use permit.

- If you haven't hared before, let me know, and we'll find an experienced
co-hare for you. Read these tips for hares.
- If you'd like to do a full-moon hash, mountain-bike/roller-blade hash,
or a hash on another date, just let me know!
- In the event that we don't have a hare, I'll announce a starting
location, and "Jungle Rules" will be in effect. Anyone not already signed
up to hare must draw straws, shortest straw wins. You get a bag of flour
and a 15 minute head start.
