Every year on the second Saturday in August, the New Orleans Hash House Harriers (a local “drinking club with a running problem”) host Red Dress Run, a charity “run” in the Crescent City.
The run usually begins in French Quarter or Marigny neighborhoods of New Orleans, although the exact location is only announced to those who registered.The runners, with drinks in hand, continue their route through the French Quarter and spend the rest of the day celebrating. Expect a sea of red throughout the neighborhood! Even if running isn't your thing, head down in red to get in on the fun.
Participants in the Red Dress Run can sign up online on the official website. Registration usually includes donations to local charities, special live music and beers for the run. Early bird pricing is available. You must be 21 or older to participate.
