Committee minutes:

Such a wide range of exciting events doesn't organise itself. A vast administrative network has to be nurtured with a constant supply of new ideas and military-grade logistical expertise. Every triumph begins with a seed planted at a meeting of the mysterious group of people known as "The Social Committee". Here are the (heavily-redacted) minutes of those meetings, which offer a fascinating glimpse into the inner workings of The Machine.

Hash-style runs are usually, but not exclusively, held on public land, footpaths, or roads. No guarantee can be made that this is always the case if, for instance: public footpaths are not clearly marked either in situ or on maps; the ownership of the land is uncertain; any other reason. Each runner is free to decide whether or not to follow the marked course. It is the responsibility of each participant to ensure his or her own safety and the safety of others, including non-participants, livestock and wildlife. Dogs are the responsibility of their owners/keepers. Children under sixteen years must be accompanied by, and are the responsibility of, their parents or carers. Each "hash" covers a different location and route, and is run without marshals or other officials. "Hash House Harriers" defines a style of social jogging and is not a legal entity.
