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. This yearly event is loved by locals and visitors alike, and is unlike any other run in the world. The run is just the beginning of a day full of red dress goers.
Red Dress Run 2019
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!
On August 10 2019, hit the streets in your head to toe red attire. Whether you're running or not, the day is filled with fun and excitement. If running isn't your thing, watching from the sidelines is just as fun, and red dresses are still required!
Participants in the Red Dress Run New Orleans can sign up online here. Registration includes donations to local charities, special live music, and beers for the run. Early bird pricing is available. Registration opens in June.
