Bali on the Run

(12/23/2002)

As their response to the October 12th terror attack the Bali Hash House Harriers (Bali HHH) have organized a Bali Recovery Run, covering 4 days of activities from February 14-17, 2002.

Four days of hashing in all.

Hashing?

You might well ask.

Hashing is something of a local tradition which sees otherwise normal and sane members of the community don running kit, consume copious quantities of food and beer, and run through local rice terraces and otherwise sleepy villages screaming "onward, onward!"

The Bali Recovery Run

The weekend of games, hashing, bashing and thrashing gets underway with a regular HHH run on Friday, February 14, and winds up with a final run for any survivors on the following Monday, February 17.

The organizers claim the weekend will expose local and visiting runners to breathtaking views of Bali via off the beaten track running routes.

Blessed by the Gods?

The dates for the HHH Bali Recovery Run exhibit propinquity with a number of important dates on various calendars.

Friday, February 14th marks both Valentine's Day but also Hari Bhatari Sri - a day dedicated to the Balinese goddess of rice and fertility; February 15th, the second day of the event, is the Chinese celebration of Cap Go Meh; February 16th is the third Sunday before lent or Septuagesima and Bulan Purnama the Balinese day of the Full Moon; and February 17th is the Buddhist celebration of Maghapuia.

What all this has to do with anything, we're not quite sure. The Hashers, however, are a strange lot, deriving strength from any signs and divinations connected with their runs.

For A Very Good Cause

The Headquarters for the HHH event is the Grand Bali Beach Hotel in Sanur where special accommodation packages are on offer for out of town participants. An early registration fee of Rp. 300,000 (approximately US$ 34) is available before December 31, 2002. After that the rate increases to Rp. 500,000. Hashers under the age of 16 can participate for only Rp. 50,000.

A warning to everyone else in Bali on these dates: buy your stocks of Bintang Beer well in advance. Supplies may be under severe strain during the coming HHH Bali Recovery Run.
