Hashing in Melaka, West Malaysia.

Melaka is the oldest city in Malaysia, founded in 1390 by a Sumatran Prince named Parameswara . The 1st foreign invasion was fought by the Portuguese over this Sultanate in 1511. They remained in control until surrendering to the Dutch in 1641.  The Dutch gave Melaka to the British in 1795 and British influence temporarily ended during the 2nd world war.

It was recorded in 1937 A.S. Gispert was transferred to Melaka and ran with the Springgit Harriers . 1975 saw the birth of Hashing in Melaka  which now  boasts  a total of  9 Hashing  chapters :-

1)      Batang Melaka H3  ( All Male Chapter, runs on Monday)

2)      Malacca H3 (  Mixed Chapter, runs on Tuesday)

3)      Orang Utan H3 ( All  Male Chapter, runs on Thursday)

4)      Kota Melaka H3 ( All  Male Chapter, runs on Fridays)

5)      Orang Gila Hazards ( All Male Chapter, runs on Fridays)

6)      HAA H3 ( Mixed Chapter, runs on Sunday)

7)      Melaka Sunday H4 ( Mixed Chapter, runs on Sunday)

8)      Melaka Full Moon H3 ( Mixed Chapter, runs on Full Moon day )

9)    Malacca Monkey H3 ( All Male Chapter, run on every two months Once:- Saturday)

The weekly run sites of these chapters are normally located within a  20km radius offering  a wide variety of terrain. Weekday runs starts at 6 pm averaging 8 to 10km trails. Weekend runs starts at 5:30 pm. The Pulau Besar (island off the coast of Melaka) offers an ideal challenge to those who seek a combination of terrain with beach, rock climbing and narrow trails. Runners  also have opportunities to  run through primary rain forest, oil palm, rubber plantations, aboriginal settlements and a host of terrains too many to mention. I am sure that those of you who attended the 4th Malaysian Nash Hash in 2004 have fond memories of the trails and the warm hospitality in Historical Melaka.

Melaka has been awarded UNESCO Heritage recognition for preservation of it’s historical buildings. The Malacca River and the buildings along Jonker and Heeren  Street comes under the  Unesco World Heritage Site. Reasonably priced accommodations averaging at US$30 per night can be found at the new township of Melaka Raya. With over 6000 rooms available, ranging from budget to five star accommodations, all within   walking distance to historical sites, fantastic shopping, and entertainment locations. Melaka Raya houses more than 100 pubs and restaurants, as well as good traditional foot and body massages parlors to rejuvenate your aching muscles after the hash runs.

Melaka is known for it’s fantastic food. An adventure awaits you dining amongst the diverse cultures. Local Portuguese, BabaNyonya, Chicken Rice, Ikan Bakar , Satay Chelop, Chinese Satay  and other cuisines defines Melaka food at it’ very best.  Oh yes, there are beers too; Carlsberg, Anchor, Heniken, Tiger, and Guiness are at the forefront of  the local scene and at bargain prices too.

Melaka offers you an ideal hashing destination, with which will reminisce the type of runs that Gispert did way back in  1937 with the Springgit Harriers. Most of all you need to experience the warmth of the people especially the hashers from the 8 chapters in Melaka.

On On to Melaka.
