The annual Red Dress Run is finally upon us!!! Dust off that silky, sexy red number that you sweat in once a year, brush the tangles out of that lovely blond wig, and then, men (and ladies), if you’re really feeling up for it, shave the legs and gloss up the lips with a bright shade of red. Join the Beijing Hash House Harriers for one of the greatest of all hash traditions, our Red Dress charity run. Donations are encouraged and all profits from Sunday’s run will go to a charity to be announced during the circle. The hash has made snazzy commemorative patches which will be given out to anyone who gives 100RMB or more in hash cash and donations.

- Why RED DREES run:
This particular run is almost the biggest event that every chapter of the HHH held every year. According to hasher lore, a newcomer in San Diego was invited to a hash; unbeknownst to her it was a running group, and she attended the run in a red dress instead of running clothes. After being mocked for wearing such an outfit she ran the trail anyway. Other hashers began wearing red dresses as a joke and the tradition soon became an annual event that spread across the world. The point of the run is that all participants (both sexes) don red dresses of various sorts. The Red Dress Run is typically the largest event organized by a chapter in a given year, with attendance topping 2,000 in San Diego, and 600 in Washington, D.C.
The largest Red Dress Run event is currently in New Orleans, with approximately 8,000-10,000 participants in 2010. During the Interhash, every 2 years, a Red Dress run takes places asweell.
