  • Red Dress Run 2012

Thousands of men and women will don red dresses and hit the road in a freewheeling romp through the French Quarter Saturday. The New Orleans Hash House Harriers, who tout themselves as "A Drinking Club with a Running Problem," host the annual Red Dress Run, which includes a 2-mile run, live music, barbecue and beer. Flamboyant running attire is encouraged. The party in Armstrong Park features music by Chasing Daylight, an alternative rock band from West Monroe, La., from noon to 1:30 p.m., and the Bucktown All-Stars from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration includes the run, barbecue from Corky's Bar-B-Q and beer.

Proceeds benefit local nonprofit groups. Last year the group donated approximately $200,000 to more than 60 organizations. Registration for the run is $65 in advance, $70 on the day of the event. For more information and to register online, visit www.neworleanshash.com. — Matthew Hose
