What do you get when you mix lots of beer, lots of runners, and lots of red dresses?
Why, the 21st Annual San Diego Hash House Harrier's Red Dress Run!!! (wow, that was a mouthful).
Okay, what is a House House Harrier, to all you mortals out there?? First, it has nothing to do with that kind of hash...sheesh!!
The Hash House is a running club that started in Asia many years ago by some British ex-pats. Eventually, it made it's way all across the globe. The club has all sorts of funny drinking songs and lots of traditions. The "hares" are the run leaders who mark the trail, usually with puffs of flour. It's up to the pack to follow and not be led down the wrong path.
Anyway, the SDH3 hosts the very famous Red Dress Run in San Diego every year. I went for the 2nd year in a row and convinced Rachel to come out too...so, so fun. Beer checks, high fives from random tourists, running through Gaslamp and Little Italy, CRASHING the St. Augustine graduation!! Woohoo! Debauchery at it's finest. In any case, here's a little sampling of the pics:
