DH3 – Dhekelia Hash House Harriers

Dhekelia H3 was founded in January 1967, just beating Sydney to it as the first hash outside Malaysia/Singapore.

The then Deputy commander British Forces in Cyprus, Gris Davies Scourfield, was approached by one of his junior officers (believed to be Ray Thornton) and asked if it would be possible to set up a hash at Dhekelia. Gris replied that not only was it possible, but that he would run in it and be the first On Pres!

  • DH3 welcomes both runners and walkers and, generally, has trails for both
  • The hash runs on a Wednesday
  • Runs last around an hour
  • Runs take typically takes place within 15 miles of Dhekelia
  • Current hash fees are €3 per person
  • Winter runs begin at 4pm, spring and autumn runs at 5pm, summer runs at 6pm

New hashers, either experienced or brand new to hashing, are always very welcome.

  2. Thanks everyone, will try and turn up for the Pyla run on Monday, should be able to find it ok!

  3. Hi Sally,

    No need to do anything before the day, just turn up and ask someone to point you towards Hash Cash so you can pay your run fees.

    The Larnaca, LH3, run on Monday is in Pyla which should be quite convenient for you? Drive towards Pyla village and look for the red on white “LH3” signs set by the side of the road. The run starts at 5pm so people will be there from 4.30pm if not earlier.

    Hope to see you there. I think maybe we spoke a couple of weeks ago in Oroklini just before the run.

  4. Do I have to join or can I just turn up, recently moved to Oroklini and looking to get fit and meet people.

    • Hi Sally
      Next weeks DH3 is in the Vrousoulles area, so its a bit of a trek, but the following week should be more Oroklini area, I will be posting details when the hare gives them to me… watch this space.
