Big Lick Hash House (Weekly Hash Run)

Event image Time: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Location: Varies Week to Week If it is possible to offend you in any way...DO NOT ATTEND THIS EVENT. Most hash clubs lovingly refer to themselves as, "A Drinking Club with a Running Problem," but their weekly runs also tend to include nudity (don't get too excited...male nudity is more common), offensive language and songs, and semi-mandatory drinking stops. That being said...it's also a heck of a good time!!

If you're into that kind of thing then join the wierdos and crazy people of Roanoke every Saturday at 5:30pm. A "hash run" is a group running event where one leader (hare) takes off before the rest of the group, leaving white flour & chalk marks to guide them. The hare doesn't want to get caught, so he/she will try to slow down the group by leaving several "bad" trails at intersections, sending them down rivers, or leaving song & beer checks.

Each week they explore a new location (and sometimes change times), so check their facebook page to find out details where the "hash" details are posted weekly. The hash typically costs $5 but post run food & beverages are provided. Questions call Keith at 540-309-6562

Odyssey Trail Running Rampage

Event image Time: 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM Location: Douthat State Park The Odyssey Trail Running Rampage will bring in Fall with four great trail running races, The Trail Six-Miler, The Trail Half Marathon, the Trail Marathon, and the 40 mile Trail Ultra. All of these great races are part of the 2015 Trail Runner Trophy Series . These trail races will give athletes the opportunity to run on some of the best trails in the Southeast at a gorgeous state park nestled in the mountains of VA, Douthat State Park. Get together with family and friends this a weekend at Douthat State Park which has a lot to offer, hiking, mt.biking, paddling, fishing, and relaxing.

The Trail Half Marathon, the Trail Marathon, and the 40 mile Trail Ultra race courses will be a loop format which will offer challenging uphills, fast downhills and beautiful views at multiple points on the trail. Racers will run along creeks with waterfalls and through Rhododendron covered tunnels engulfing the trails. A loop will have a total elevation gain of 2700’ over 13 miles, the majority of which will be gained in the first four miles.

The 40 mile Ultra will entail 3 laps; the Marathon 2 laps; and the Half Marathon 1 lap. There will be 1 aid station on top of the mountain, at the cabin overlook, at mile 3.5 with water only and 2 fully stocked aid stations at miles 9(mile 1 for the Six Miler) and 11.25 (mile 3.5 for the Six Miler) of each loop. They will have HEED water, flat cola, potatoes and salt, banana halves, and pretzels at each station. Ultra and Marathon runners will be able to stage supplies at the finish of the loop.

The Six Mlie Trail race will be a single loop with a few challenging uphills, but mostly rolling terrain. This loop will have almost 1000' of elevation gain. This race will incorporate the last four miles of the other three event's loop with the addition of the Tobacco Hollow Ridge Trail at the start.

The loops for all the events are a little long by 0.3 +/- miles (more plus). There will be no extra charge for the bonus miles!

Why the loop format? The loop preserves a little piece of history. The half-marathon loop was designed as part of the Odyssey Off-Road Iron –distance Triathlon, in which competitors capped off 2.4 miles of swimming and 112 miles of biking with the trail marathon of two 13.1mile loops. Numerous requests for the option to skip the swim and bike and to “just” run the loop led to creation of the Trail Running Rampage events.

Big Lick Hash House (Weekly Hash Run)

Event image Time: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Location: Varies Week to Week If it is possible to offend you in any way...DO NOT ATTEND THIS EVENT. Most hash clubs lovingly refer to themselves as, "A Drinking Club with a Running Problem," but their weekly runs also tend to include nudity (don't get too excited...male nudity is more common), offensive language and songs, and semi-mandatory drinking stops. That being said...it's also a heck of a good time!!

If you're into that kind of thing then join the wierdos and crazy people of Roanoke every Saturday at 5:30pm. A "hash run" is a group running event where one leader (hare) takes off before the rest of the group, leaving white flour & chalk marks to guide them. The hare doesn't want to get caught, so he/she will try to slow down the group by leaving several "bad" trails at intersections, sending them down rivers, or leaving song & beer checks.

Each week they explore a new location (and sometimes change times), so check their facebook page to find out details where the "hash" details are posted weekly. The hash typically costs $5 but post run food & beverages are provided. Questions call Keith at 540-309-6562

Big Lick Hash House (Weekly Hash Run)

Event image Time: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Location: Varies Week to Week If it is possible to offend you in any way...DO NOT ATTEND THIS EVENT. Most hash clubs lovingly refer to themselves as, "A Drinking Club with a Running Problem," but their weekly runs also tend to include nudity (don't get too excited...male nudity is more common), offensive language and songs, and semi-mandatory drinking stops. That being said...it's also a heck of a good time!!

If you're into that kind of thing then join the wierdos and crazy people of Roanoke every Saturday at 5:30pm. A "hash run" is a group running event where one leader (hare) takes off before the rest of the group, leaving white flour & chalk marks to guide them. The hare doesn't want to get caught, so he/she will try to slow down the group by leaving several "bad" trails at intersections, sending them down rivers, or leaving song & beer checks.

Each week they explore a new location (and sometimes change times), so check their facebook page to find out details where the "hash" details are posted weekly. The hash typically costs $5 but post run food & beverages are provided. Questions call Keith at 540-309-6562

Big Lick Hash House (Weekly Hash Run)

Event image Time: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM Location: Varies Week to Week If it is possible to offend you in any way...DO NOT ATTEND THIS EVENT. Most hash clubs lovingly refer to themselves as, "A Drinking Club with a Running Problem," but their weekly runs also tend to include nudity (don't get too excited...male nudity is more common), offensive language and songs, and semi-mandatory drinking stops. That being said...it's also a heck of a good time!!

If you're into that kind of thing then join the wierdos and crazy people of Roanoke every Saturday at 5:30pm. A "hash run" is a group running event where one leader (hare) takes off before the rest of the group, leaving white flour & chalk marks to guide them. The hare doesn't want to get caught, so he/she will try to slow down the group by leaving several "bad" trails at intersections, sending them down rivers, or leaving song & beer checks.

Each week they explore a new location (and sometimes change times), so check their facebook page to find out details where the "hash" details are posted weekly. The hash typically costs $5 but post run food & beverages are provided. Questions call Keith at 540-309-6562
