The 12th saw the event return to Shanghai, 6-8 September, 2013. The event included the first ever Rusty Man challenge on the Sunday morning which entailed consuming a full English breakfast with bloody Mary, followed by a 5k run with a litre of beer to be consumed after every km. The last 100 yards involved an egg and spoon dash. As in hash tradition, everyone who competed was a winner. The Venue, Grub n Groove, The Loft, Jianguo Xi Lu. The idea came from Haggis and hared by Master Wanker. Winner was Rawhide from Wanchai Hash.

It was a full weekend even though the total attendance was only 99 due to some admin challenges the combined Shanghai hash kennels had experienced in the run up to the event.

The DOGS (Distinguished Overseas Gentlemen of Shanghai) hosted a Prelube on Thursday the 5th.

Friday saw a welcome registration at Mexo at the Bund, Wharf 1846, Waimu Lu and a city run set by the POSH (Harriets). Saturday boasted 2 runs. The ballbuster was on a mountain outside Suzhou and set by the Suzhou hash. The other was set by the Drunken Dragon and held on the flat lands also to the west of Shanghai. After the runs and circles, the packs met at the restaurant at the site of the shorter run. An oN oN oN ensued at the hash bar with live music.

Sunday’s run was around the concessions around the start point of the Grub n Groove, somewhat a repeat for those still alive after the Rusty Man. Lunch ensued in a nearby locale and those who didn’t leave went back to Grub n Groove to drink the afternoon (and evening) away.
