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. On August 11, 2018, men and women will be adorned in red dresses and will take over the Marigny and French Quarter neighborhoods.
The run begins in New Orleans Crescent Park in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, just outside of the French Quarter. 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!
