Come ride with us!


 What is Hashing: Hashing began in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 1938, when a group of British colonial officials and expatriates founded a running club called the Hash House Harriers. They named the group after their meeting place, the Selangor Club, nicknamed the "Hash House." Hash House Harrier runs were patterned after the traditional British paper chase. A "hare" was given a head start to blaze a trail, marking his devious way with ribbons, all the while pursued by a shouting pack of "harriers." Only the hare knew where he was going . . . the harriers followed his clues to stay on trail. Apart from the excitement of chasing the hare and solving the clues, reaching the end was its own reward . . . for there, thirsty harriers would find a tub of iced-down beer.

Hashing . . . We have taken the hashing tradition to new heights using ATVs and UTVs. Rather than running we are riding in our off-road vehicles.  This new ATV/UTV hash will be a mixture of sociability, fun and hard work, a refreshing escape from the same old rides we do every weekend. This ATV/UTV hash will be an exhilaratingly fun combination of riding, orienteering, and partying, where bands of harriers and harriettes hunt the hares on 15-20-mile-long ride.  This classic hunt will travel through town, county, and Forest Service roads and trails, all in search of camaraderie and good times.

The Sturgis Hash is a loosely-organized group of ATVs and UTVs men and women who come together to hunt the hare. We will follow the hash marks left by the hares as we ride over State, County and Forest Service roads, but we also ride some of the most exciting off-road trails in North America. And although some of today's health-conscious hashers (& Drivers) may shun cold beer in favor of water or diet sodas, trail's end is still a celebration and a party!
