Sponsored by the New Orleans Hash House Harriers, a self-proclaimed "drinking club with a running problem," the Annual Red Dress Run through the French Quarter is a unique and fun New Orleans event that doubles as a fundraiser.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the event.
Open to men and women alike, the Red Dress Run has raised over a million dollars for 100 local charities in the past few years.
This year’s Red Dress Run, a two-mile run/walk through the French Quarter, takes place on Saturday, August 9. Participants begin assembling, registering, and drinking at 9:00 a.m., and the run is open to anyone over 21 looking for a fun way to raise money for a good cause in the beautiful French Quarter.
The $60 registration fee ($70 after August 1) includes beer, food, live music, and giveaways. For people signing up on the day of the event, only cash - no credit cards - will be accepted.
Five Finger Discount and Flow Tribe will play on the day of the run, along with the BrownCoat Brothers and DJ Marion Perret.
Don't have a red dress for the occasion? Don't worry. You can find a wide selection at a number of local New Orleans thrift stores and costume shops.
To register, or for more information visit the official Red Dress Run website.
