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 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 the neighborhood!
Participants in the Red Dress Run can sign up online at the Hash House Harriers’ official website. Registration usually includes donations to local charities, special live music and beers for the run.
