A local running club with a long and interesting history is hosting a benefit for Save Buffalo Bayou in Memorial Park next Saturday.
The Houston Ankle Biters Hash House Harriers is a social group, open to all ages, that meets monthly for non-competitive runs through woods, tunnels, parking garages, or wherever their leader, known as the hare, takes them.
They regularly hold benefits and this time they are honoring Save Buffalo Bayou with a Kontribution Kickball event on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in a field next to the rugby pitch south of Memorial Drive on the southside of the park.
The event is free and open to the public, with beer and grilled food. All donations benefit Save Buffalo Bayou.
The Hash House Harriers is an international organization formed by British officers in 1938 in what is now Malaysia. Members of these clubs, who use pseudonyms, traditionally refer to the group as “a drinking club with a running problem.”
Sounds like great fun. Come join us and meet some very fit, interesting, and jovial people.
