Phoenix (ab)normally has it’s Red Dress R*n in February of each year, but in 2012 we have decided to move it to the end of March/beginning of April to provide a better experience for our local and visiting hashers.
A quote from the history of the Red Dress R*n:
The Red Dress Run may be the only completely original idea the Hash House Harriers ever had. And it happened nearly by accident.
In 1987, a young lady wearing a red dress emerged from an airplane that had landed in southern California to visit a friend from her high school years. Shortly thereafter, she found herself transported to Long Beach, where her friend intended to introduce her to a zany running group called the “Hash House Harriers.” One member, noting her gender and attire, urged that she “just wait in the truck” until her host returned. With that goading, she ran into history sporting her red dress and heels.
