- FIRST, A BIT OF ATHENS HASH HOUSE HARRIERS HISTORY -
Once upon a time (well actually in 1982) in a suburb of Athens called Papagou on
Run 169 (well naturally) of the Athens Hash House Harriers,
a hasher named Costas became the first Athens Hasher to reach 100 runs.
The hare was Roger Skinner & the circle was held &
the award made in his front garden in Papagou.
(For more photos see Hashes 1982 > Runs 140-171)
NOW, exactly 1,400 runs later we carry on that proud tradition with Run 1569
and award Bouboulina with a 75 run badge
and hash dog Zak with a 25 run badge!
