The Old Strathcona Hash House Harriers (OSH3) is a “no frills” hash, with no run fee and no Religious Advisor, just a run and good company!

We meet at 2 pm year-round on most Sundays, except on long weekends unless a hare insists on setting a run. Runs are usually simpler than in the “big hash”: we usually just use checks and leave out the checkbacks and false trails unless the hare f*cks up. We also don’t usually have a hashhold, but we don’t complain if the hare offers one!

Because we’re a small hash we often meet up for potlucks at the hare’s home or at some small pub. Like the other hashes we still take advantage of Edmonton’s extensive network of trails and river and creek valleys.

For all these reasons the OSH3 is a friendly, casual Hash. It’s also a good place to learn how to set trails because the trails are easier to set, there’s usually no pub to book, and we’re grateful to get the hares.

If you wish to hare a run, please contact Dr. Diddle at Updates may also be sent to

Unless someone offers to host a walk/run, from December 29 to some time in February the OSH3 will be on hiatus, except for Sticky’s birthday run (listed below). Stay warm!

No Run on February 23 – More winter hiatus!
