What is a Red Dress Run?

A charity event organised by the Hash House Harriers running clubs. In 1987, Donna Rhinehart was invited to a hash run in Long Beach, California, to be introduced to the sport. She arrived, thinking it was a social event, in an impressive red dress and heels. She was invited to “wait in the truck” until her host returned. Instead, Rhinehart joined the run in her red dress. The following year, the San Diego Hash House Harriers sent Rhinehart an airline ticket to attend the inaugural “Red Dress Run”. Hundreds of hashers wore red dresses for the event which was widely covered by local media. In addressing the crowd, Rhinehart suggested that such hashes might be held to raise funds for local charities. The event quickly spread around the globe to places such as Beijing, Montreal, Helsinki, Osan/Yangsan Hashers, Moscow, Tokyo, New Orleans, Washington DC and Hobart in Australia. Over the years, it has raised millions of dollars for charity. 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. Today the Red Dress Run is another part of the Hash House Harriers’ heritage. Rhinehart died in 2013 as some clubs were celebrating the 25th anniversary of their Red Dress Run.
