 Good sports join chase to boost cause's coffers

Runners meet in Wan Chai for the Santa Hash.

They dressed in red and gathered at a tennis court on Bowen Road last Sunday. Some had reindeer headbands and some had toddlers on their backs.

The 100 or so "hashers" didn't know where they were going but they were all ready for the annual Santa Hash to raise money for Operation Santa Claus, the charity appeal co-organised by the South China Morning Post and RTHK.

The run brings members from all of Hong Kong's 14 Hash House Harrier clubs together to pursue a lead "hare" in a chase around the city.

"People of all ages and abilities can join hashing. It is a healthy and socialising activity," hare Deric Probst-Wallace said.
