TYPHOON 8 HASH HOUSE HARRIERS
The T8 Hash was formed by Tim Bywater-Lees and Tymon Mellor in 1993, with the first run in August 1995 in tropical storm Helen. The two year interval, confirmed that the hash was the most unpredictable hash in the world. The T8 hash only runs when the Hong Kong Typhoon 8 signal (or higher) is raised, we run for fun when every one else runs for cover.
The idea of running in the wind came from a successful Wanchai Hash during Typhoon Dot on 26 September 1993 (also the run where Tymon met his future wife!). When a typhoon approaches Hong Kong the city shuts down and batten the hatches, so there is nothing else to do but run and drink.
OnOn into the eye of the storm!
T8 raised before or at 8:00am meet at noon.
T8 after 8:00am meet at 4:00pm.
No run if the signal comes down before 11:00 am.
