The Red Dress Run may be the only completely original idea the Hash House
Harriers have ever had.
In 1988, the San Diego Hash House Harriers hosted the first annual Red Dress
Run. Hundreds of male and female hashers adorned themselves in red dresses
for a spectacle widely covered by California press. The Lady In Red, founder
of the idea, suggested that the Red Dress Run become an annual fundraiser
for local charities.
The tradition of the Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run quickly spread to
every corner of the globe, including Beijing, Montreal, Ho Chi Minh City,
Helsinki, Moscow, Tokyo, Washington, DC, Hobart (Australia) and countless
other locations. Over the years, the Red Dress Run has been very successful
in raising millions of dollars for a wide variety of local charities. The
New Orleans Hash House Harriers attracted 7,000 participants to their Red
Dress Run in 2010, raising more than $200,000 for 50 local charities.
The Las Vegas Red Dress Run is a licensed 501(c)3. Proceeds benefit the
local Las Vegas charity, Safenest.
