French Quarter, New Orleans, LA, USA

Every year on the second Saturday in August, the New Orleans Hash House Harriers (a local “drinking club with a running problem”) host Red Dress Run, a charity “run” in the Crescent City. This yearly event is loved by locals and visitors alike and is unlike any other run in the world. The run is just the beginning of a day full of red dress goers. On August 13, 2022, hit the streets in your head-to-toe red attire. Whether you're running or not, the day is filled with fun and excitement.

Red Dress Run 2022

The event begins at 9 a.m. at Crescent Park in the Bywater. The runners, with drinks in hand, start their route in the Marigny/ Bywater, working their way through the French Quarter. The route is about 2 miles long. Expect a sea of red throughout!

Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. with live music to follow at noon. Spend the rest of the day exploring amongst the sea of red.

If running isn't your thing, watching from the sidelines is just as fun, and red dresses are still required! Party with your fellow fashionistas afterward on Bourbon Street and the surrounding area.


Stay tuned for more registration information!
