Pan Asia events are made special by the runs, the souvenirs, the stage extravaganzas, the food, the venues, meeting hashers from all corners of the globe for a Friday-Saturday-Sunday get together BUT ALSO Pan Asia is made special by it’s Pre & Post events.

Before the main event even begins there is a great Pre Lube already being organised by China’s famous ‘Xian Hash House Harriers’. It’s an amazing mish mash of top notch hashing, awesome run sites with culural marvels, colda beer of course, an array of food choices and even a train….and did we mention cold beer, oh yes we did! For more information on this event visit the ‘Pre Lube’ section on our website http://www.panasiahash2019.com/prelube

OK, before we talk about the main event let’s jump ahead and look at the Post Lube which starts the day after the main event. The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors and a River Cruise! That’s even before we include amazing run sites in and around Shanghai. For more info on this unique event click http://www.panasiahash2019.com/postlube

So, have we got your attention yet?
