The Hash House Horrors is the family-friendly version of the world renowned Hash House Harriers. “Horrors” is an amusing twist on the word “harriers”. The Family Hash runs are between 2 to 4 kms, depending on the terrain. The objective is to get kids outdoors exercising and to learn a bit about the local flora and fauna.
The faster kids (ages 8 – 12) usually complete the run in about 45 minutes, while the younger ones (4 – 8) finish within an hour to 1.5 hrs. For the under 4 crowd, best to bring a carrier pack just in case.
The runs are usually at locations just off the Jagorawi toll road, or in Sentul. Drinks and snacks are available at the finish line, with beer for the adults. This is a great way to meet new people (a good mix of Jakarta and Bogor families) and go on a family adventure. Definitely a must-try!
