Freezing Cold Hash
in the Swamps of Edison
BY DAN FABRIZ
EDISON, NJ--The 2012 edition of the Freezing Cold Hash (FCH) Run was a success and traveled over some of the most dangerous conditions on a very unseasonable warm 60-degree day. This adventure run featured over 240 crazed athletes running through marsh, streams of dirty water, under fences, and over muddy trails.
A record-breaking number of runners participated in this years race as the race seems to grow larger each year. Runners also made canned food donations to the St James Food Pantry of Edison upon arriving at registration the morning of the run. The FCH run is a non-competitive group run in the woods of Edison, trails along the Raritan River, and Middlesex County Park with the run starting and finishing at Kenneth Vercammen's Law Office in Edison NJ.
Hashing...a mixture of athleticism, sociability, hedonism, and hard work; a refreshing break from the nine-to-five routine. Hashing continues to be an exhilaratingly fun combination of running, orienteering, and partying, where bands of Harriers and Harriettes chase Hares on either three or five mile trails through--all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times. The Post Race Social called the On-On was held at the Green Derby--sort of an early St. Patricks Day Party
Mark your calendars as we plan for January 5, 2013 Freezing Cold Hash.
