Welcome! ACH4 is a non-competitive trail running group located in San Antonio, Texas. We're a different kind of hash kennel. Our trails are short, kid-friendly, and pickup-style (meaning a random hare is chosen just before trail begins). Yes, kid-friendly. Your family is welcome here!
After trail ends, our R-rated circle begins so children are sent inside for juice and a movie. Meetings are typically hosted from a member's house.
We do trail Sundays at 10 AM and Wednesdays at 7PM.
Sunday's hare is picked at 10:30ish with pack away 5 minutes later. We will end circle at 1PM so members can continue the fun at the San Antonio Hash if they so desire. Wednesday's hare is picked at 7:30ish with pack away 5 minutes later. We end this circle promptly at 10pm so members can get plenty of sleep before going to school or work the next day.
We try to keep the trail under 3 miles and encourage walkers. Trails are A-to-A. This means the end will be the beginning, so no one should get lost.
What to Bring
Your singing voice
A piece of chalk
A headband if you rate
A healthy, up-beat, groovy attitude
What to Expect
Short Trails and Loooong Circles!
At 10:30ish (Sundays) or 7:30ish (Wednesdays) we circle up and play a quick round of Spin the Bottle. The winner gets to hare!
conduct Chalk Talk, where we teach the pack what trail marks they can
expect to see. We bless the newly-appointed Hare and give them a bag of flour,
chalk, and engineer tape to lay trail. They
get a 5 minute head start. We do a quick warmup, then it's Pack Away!
If the Hare is Snared, the 'Catcher' gets the flour and becomes the new Hare. When everyone gets in we circle up. The children are sent inside, we draw the shades, and get to the Down Downs.
