This year’s annual Zurich Red Dress Charity Run was held on  9 July 2016 at GZ Hottingen. There was quite an eye-catching city center run, lots of fun, beer, and money raised for the Theodora Stiftung.

Several hashers went the extra mile to help the cause this year. Chirstian Harlot and Thirsty Thursday completed a whole month without alcohol to raise just over 650 CHF and Shamcock scooped up a sweet corporate donation of 1000 CHF. In total, ZH3 raised over 3,000 CHF!

ALL profits of this event were donated to the Giggle Clowns of Stiftung Theodora, who lighten up hospital stays for children with visits from clowns who make them forget their illness and laugh and giggle and smile.

Early information and sign up for next year’s Sola. We’ll give priority to anyone who couldn’t get a place in 2015.

The race starts with a ladies stretch 1 at 7:30 (8:00 for the fast team) in the misty Hönggerberg woods. Then runners 2 to 7 head out into Engstringen, up and along the Uetliberg and back into town, finishing at the beautiful University Irchel. The afternoon runners 8-12 start at 12:30 (13:00 fast team). The trail heads through Forch to Egg and comes back to Witikon. 2 short runs from there to the finish at Irchel complete the race. This is the complete route. We meet at tents across the lake from the finish (see the picture for the view from our beer stop).

Zürich Winterfest 2016 recap

Winterfest 2016

(Friday January 22 – Sunday January 24, 2016)

A full Weekend of hashy fun, snow, trails, ice, cold drinks, fabulous Food, and much more, including stylish haberdashery.

The real animals of the Hash Kingdom, from close and afar, gathered around the Zurich Zoo to celebrate Winterfest 2016. Trails were laid and mostly found. Beer was downed, and mostly kept down. Delicious food was gorged on and reportedly resulted in multiple orgasms. Quim de la quim was invented, licked and gobbled down. Shamcock finally found his long lost son and we named him Smoking Cock.

Other highlights included:

The Naked Run – A hardy group of naked, drunk hashers braved the snow, cold and frost to follow a lengthy and complex trail of paprika chips around the building. Highlights included narrowly avoiding being stuck to a frozen car and a delightfully revealing circle RA’ed by But His Nut.

Shoe fairies – The highly-amusing and very artistic shoe fairies appeared during the night and made Slippery Digit‘s Sunday morning lay a little more time-consuming than he had planned.
