The New Orleans Hash House Harriers hit the streets en masse in a run fueled by beer, poor fashion sense and wild abandon. Red dresses or elaborate outfits are de rigueur for the jaunt through downtown streets. Runners gather at Washington Square for a pre-party beginning at 9 a.m., and hit the course at 12:30 p.m. There's live music before and after the run, including a set by Dash Rip Rock at 2 p.m. The 2010 event featured more than 8,000 participants and raised $200,000, which was distributed to 50 area charities and organizations. Participants can register at an expo at the New Orleans Fair Grounds (1751 Gentilly Blvd.) from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Registration $75. — Will Coviello
