Harriers Set for 50th Run

The Phnom Penh chapter of the Hash House Harriers running club celebrates its 50th

run on Aug. 14 and to mark the occasion the Hash Mismanagement Committee has planned

an evening barbecue/beer session. The cost is U.S. $10 which also gets you a free

T-shirt, generously sponsored by Telstra. The meeting point for the run is the Royal

car park at 15:45.

The Hash House Harriers, founded by expatriates in Kuala Lumpur in 1938, is a worldwide

organization whose members meet regularly for short runs and long socializing. If

you can't make it this weekend, look for notices in the Gecko, Rock Hard Cafe and

Cat House for news of upcoming runs.
