The Holyland Hash House Harriers

Join revelers in Tel Aviv for an International social fun run and beer-drinking event. 'It was the silliest run I ever did,' says one enthusiast.

"Hashing" has been around since before Israel became a sovereign state. But the Hash House Harriers -- an international group of non-competitive weekend running clubs including about 550,000 members -- has an enthusiastic following in Tel Aviv.

The Holyland Hash House Harriers do a 5K run along a pre-set route laid out with flour markings, and any mistakes are "punished" with a beer.

Humor is another important "H" in the social phenomenon sometimes abbreviated as H3. Some of the participants like to dress in outlandish attire "and just act like fools," says one aficionado on this video.

"We have people who are really serious runners, and then there are people who are just fun runners or people who don't run at all. We have walkers, we have dogs, kids. It's really about social experience," says one Israeli H3 member.
