We will be starting in Syracuse from The Penny at 11:69 hash time on Saturday, September 17th. Sign in begins at 11:00AM and the run will not start until 12:00PM-ish. After the run, we will have food and an after-party included as a part of your registration fee.
Red Dress Runs are a fantastic hashing tradition. The Washington, DC, San Diego, and Las Vegas Red Dress Runs attract 500+ people every year. They are typically the same distance as a weekly hash run, but the event lasts for hours with lots of people and a fun charity benefit after! In addition to the running part, think Halloween, Mardi Gras, and New Year Eve all wrapped up in one glorious day! Last year’s Syracuse Red Dress Run was epic, and this year is shaping up to be our best yet. We HIGHLY encourage you to share this fun event with even the most casual hashers!!
