Well Red

Red Dress Run 2017 in Photos

On Saturday, the streets of New Orleans ran red as thousands took part in a race for a cause. The Hash House Harriers presented their annual run, which shifted from Armstrong Park in the French Quarter to the Marigny's Crescent Park this year. Not divergent from tradition is the event's signature red-hot fun in the sun, which included drinks, food, and live music. NoDef's Brandon Robert was on hand to capture all of the debauchery (and a little bit of the fitness.)

Red Dress Run Primer

On Saturday (8.07), downtown residents will be seeing red—literally. Thousands of men and women dressed in red dresses will come jogging (mostly) through the city streets in an annual run (and drink) for charity.

On Saturday, men and women alike donned red dresses and took to the streets of New Orleans to run for a cause. They also ran for beer. Needless to say, antics and shenanigans ensued. NoDef's Brandon Robert was on hand to capture all of the debauchery (and a little bit of the fitness.)

Today in NOLA: 8.9.14

There’ll be quite a commotion in the French Quarter today: first, the Hash House Harriers and their boldy attired volunteer runners charge through on the world’s largest Red Dress Run. In the evening, art lovers turn out on Royal Street for Dirty Linen Night, White Linen Night’s unkempt younger sibling. We’ll meet everyone for drinks at the laundromat tomorrow. Forty years ago today, Richard M. Nixon left the presidency, following his resignation announcement the night before. More to do tonight:

Red Dress Run Returns to French Quarter, Armstrong Park

Thousands of men decked out in everything from red negligees to red ball gowns roaming the Quarter for charity? In New Orleans, we call it an average Saturday in August.

Thousands showed up to Armstrong Park yesterday morning ready to run in red. Participants in the two-mile run enjoyed unlimited beer, music from Dash Rip Rock and Cowboy Mouth, and a day full of gender bending debauchery. Click through for photos.

Today in New Orleans: 8.10.13

There are many ways to get your strut on this fabulous Saturday. You can throw a hot red number and run around Armstrong Park for charity and then wear it later to shake your money-maker to some rock funk at Gasa Gasa. Or put on those dirty linens from last Saturday’s Art District stroll and venture downtown to the Royal Street galleries. On this day in 1964 Louis Armstrong 's classic album "Hello, Dolly" was certified Gold by the RIAA.


If you didn’t wake up bright and early to put on your red dress and run amok for local charities, you might have enough energy left for the rest of the day’s events. Mia Borders is at the Rusty Nail, there’s a Freaksheaux at the Allways Lounge, and it’s also the Second Saturday of the month. Dirty Linen Night is bringing some art appreciation to the French Quarter after last week’s lily-white Julia St. affair. Today in Louisiana history, Treme Brass Band leader and snare drummer Benny Jones Sr. was born in New Orleans, in 1943, and a hurricane killed more than 400 people on the Louisiana Coast in 1856.  

Many Rights at Saturday's Red Dress Run

New Orleanians love to dress up and drink for charity, and one of our midsummer favorite excuses to run amok in the streets is the Red Dress Run. Saturday, August 11, thousands will arrive early and scantily clad to prepare for their race to raise money for a long list of local nonprofits. The route is usually around three miles long, but participants’ registration money covers all the food, music, and beer they’ll need for all the physical exertion.

Quarter is Ready for Red Dress Run

Don’t be confused this Saturday morning when a slurring middle-aged man trots past your front door sporting a red sequined tutu, a red taffeta negligee, his running shoes, and a beer.
