Schedule of Starts for Five Boro Hash

Things to keep in mind:

  • You can do any section of the trail you want to.
  • The trail from Lower Manhattan (starts at noon) to the Upper East Side will be at least 20 miles and can be r*n without stopping.
  • Pre-lube rules (i.e. buy your own beer) at any location you arrive by subway, car, bus, ferry, taxi or donkey.
  • Beer and water check beer and water are for those r*n to the beer check.
  • The times are set so that the pack is r*nning behind those who are doing all of the trail. Sort of a built in sweeping system. Keeps your eyes out for overheating, etc.
  • Hash cash is $20.
