(5/3/2004)

Founded in the 1930's in Singapore, the Hash House Harriers is an international association of cross country runners now boasting more than 300,000 members in over 1,000 clubs worldwide. Each of the clubs meets once a week at a different locality near their homes to undertake scenic runs followed by convivial sessions of earnest beer drinking.

Once every two years, Hashers from around the world converge on a different location for an Interhash - a weeklong festival of running, drinking beer and celebrating the run with friends, old and new. This year's Interhash will be held in late July 2004 in Cardiff, Wales, where some 4,000 runners plus numerous friends and family are expected to participate.

Bali Seeking to Host Interhash 2006

For the first time in the long history of the Interhash, participants in this year's event will be asked to cast a vote on which location will win the rights to host the 2006 event. Site selection decisions for past Interhash events were made by a committee drawn from the general membership. The four cities competing for the honor will be host bid committees from Chaing Mai (Thailand), Edmonton (Canada), Perth (Western Australia), and Bali (Indonesia). In order to win the bid, Bali's five Hash Clubs have joined together and formed a committee to bid at Cardiff for the right to host Interhash 2006.

Bali last hosted an Interhash in 1988 and, for many who participated then, Bali remains the standard against which all other Interhashes are measured.

Working Together for Bali

Chairman of the Bali Interhash Bid Committee, Michael Crowley, a long term resident of Bali said, "winning the right to host Interhash 2006 will be very difficult because the competition amongst Hash Countries is very fierce. However I believe that Bali has much more to offer than the alternative locations. Bali's combination of unique culture, beautiful scenery, excellent tourism infrastructure, great hash experience and geographical proximity to the heartland of Hashing make our chances of winning very good."

When asked why the members of the Committee were volunteering so much of their time to the bid effort Michael explained, "the Committee members are all Indonesians and expatriates that live in Bali. Were trying to bring 5,000 athletes to Bali in 2006 which will generate a huge boost for tourism. We realize that the potential benefits to Bali of hosting Interhash 2006 include: International prestige and recognition as a world class recreation destination; direct benefit to the Bali economy of millions of dollars; and long term boost to Bali tourism resulting from event marketing and publicity."

The Bali Interhash 2006 Bid has been strongly endorsed by Bali's Governor.

Corporate sponsors are being sought to help support the cost of the Bali Interhash Bid.
