There are Hash House Harrier running clubs around the world, and they bill themselves as a "drink club with a running problem." Many hold annual Red Dress Runs, and in New Orleans there is a 2-mile run in which participants wear a red dress or costume and take at whatever pace they choose. There also are additional weekend runs for regular "Hasher" members. The Saturday event includes a party at Armstrong Park with beer, barbecue and music by The Topcats and The Mixed Nuts. Proceeds benefit local charities and organizations. In 2015, the group donated more than $165,000 to area groups including Animal Rescue New Orleans, Brifge House/Grace House, Crimestoppers Inc.,, NO/AIDS Task Force, New Orleans Veterans of Foreign Wars, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast and others. Visit the website for details. Registration is $70 in advance, $80 on the day of the run.
