‘Beer Odyssey’ Red Dress Run named among world’s Top Ten

Related:

JUNE 30, 2014 (Brussels) – The Red Dress Run Pre Ramble to “Brussels 2014 A Beer Odyssey” was selected by RedDressRuns.org as one of the world’s Top Ten Red Dress Runs of 2014. Qualifying factors for the Top Ten selection include support for charity, connecting the Red Dress Run to the Hash House Harriers’ brand, “hashpitality,” good organization and other qualities that make the event unique.

One of the aspects making this charity Red Dress Run event particularly special is that that the two hares will be Deep Throat and Zulu Boy, both of whom hared the very first Red

Zulu Boy introduced the Red Dress Run to Europe.

Zulu Boy (hand raised) introduced the Red Dress Run to Europe in 1997.

Dress Run in San Diego in 1988. Zulu Boy was also a pivotal player in the August 7, 1987 “hot tub incident” that played a contributing role in launching the Red Dress Run a year later. Also of historical significance, Zulu Boy helped introduce the first Red Dress Run in Europe at the July 1997 Euro Hash pre lube in Brussels.

The fact that this Red Dress Run takes place in the “Disneyland of Beer” that is Belgium makes it a do-not-miss event. One of the planned featured beers will be a kriek (cherry beer), ideally camouflaged for painting the town red. The name of two other beers available at the Red Dress Run party (and perhaps exclusively so) is being kept secret.

The theme of this Red Dress Run will be an upbeat commemoration of our hash friends who departed to the On After since Cardiff 2004 — sadly including the Lady in Red, who had signed up to attend this event.

The trail will start from Parc Cinquantenaire (the same place where Brussels 2014 attendees will board buses for weekend trails) and ends at Tour & Taxis, the four-day evening venue for the Beer Odyssey. According event organizer Higgins, it will be a “sightseeing trail through town with a mix of public parks, art-nouveau buildings and 2014-Top10-RDR minisurrealism.”  Format: warm-up drink, trail featuring two beer stops (open containers are OK in Brussels.

Attendance will be limited to those who who purchased tickets and are wearing Red Dress Run wristbands. The bad news is that the event was limited to 1,000 and tickets sold out within just 10 days this past January. The good news is that 100 more tickets are being allocated on a first-come, first served basis at check in for EUR 30 per head (no T-shirt) covering the run, donation to charity, party, pizza and unlimited drinks until midnight. Check-in will take place at Hotel Renaissance (EU district, just off Place Luxembourg) on Wednesday from 10:00 to 18:00 and Thursday from 10:00 to 15:00. If you arrive too late for the run itself you’ll still be able to check-in at the same place until 18:00 and join the party. If you arrive after 18:00 you’ve missed the boat. Practical details and site locations will be provided at check-in.

Other Red Dress Run venues selected for the Top Ten list include, Ascension Island in the South Atlantic; Panama City, FL; Phoenix; Montreal; New Orleans, Bisbee, AZ; Washington, Las Vegas; and Brisbane, Australia.

The Red Dress Run has been the signature event of the Hash House Harriers since 1988 and has raised funds for charities across the globe. RedDressRuns.org works to promote and protect the Hash House Harriers’ Red Dress Run tradition. In addition to its website, the RedDressRuns.org network includes a companion Facebook page and Twitter feed.

The Lady in Red: A legacy of giving to others

She was attacked by Africanized “killer” bees. So often was she stung by scorpions that it was nearly routine. Prior to a San Diego Red Dress Run, a crazed motorist drove into a crowd. In her successful attempt to sweep a child from the danger, she was struck (which explains her absence that year). She even escaped from an attempt on her life.  But it was her lifelong struggle with asthma that took her from us. A massive dust cloud known as a haboob entered the Maricopa Valley, which includes Phoenix and the suburb of Mesa, where she lived. Amid the dust, she fought for several days and believing that she had turned the corner, decided to get a few hours of sleep (two hours per night was her norm). She died in her sleep during the early morning hours of April 13, 2013, leaving behind her a rich and important legacy.

As Hash House Harriers, we remember Donna Rhinehart as The Lady in Red, noted for inspiring the Red Dress Run (breaking a glass ceiling in the process) and for her role in ensuring charity would forever be associated with this now global event.

A family tradition

Helping others was a value taught to her by her parents’ examples. While serving as a paratrooper with the famed “Band of Brothers” of Easy Company during World War II, her father won a house in the French Riviera in a poker game. While visiting it on leave, he met a dispossessed family and gave it to them. Relatives in Poland risked their lives to throw bread over the fence at Auschwitz. She was raised to believe that such acts of kindness are simply what are expected of all of us.

Changing things and breaking glass ceilings

First female bell ringer

The volunteer ranks of the local Salvation Army had thinned so much that holiday donations were on course to be far below previous years. “They were way short of men to do it,” Donna explained.  The problem was, it was a job reserved for men. “[S]o I pushed my way in – changing the men-only rules. Hmm, at 15, I was already wearing red and changing things!”

“Mom made a habit of breaking glass ceilings,” said her daughter Clare. Donna became tscoutmaster_donna 2a scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts when the need arose. “She insisted I, too, could be a Boy Scout with [her brother] Jeff.”

Recognizing that art was a subject not a subject adequately covered in her children’s school, Donna organized and launched an ambitious art appreciation program as a volunteer. When Schindler’s List was released, Donna believed its lessons were so important that it should be shown to the school. Working with her son Matt, they persuaded Steven Spielberg, who himself attended high school in Scottsdale, to bring and personally present the movie.

Throughout her life, she devoted herself to helping others, sometimes at great personal expense.

It should be no surprise that at the inaugural Red Dress Run on August 12, 1988, that she requested all future Red Dress Runs be used as an opportunity to benefit a charity and to give back to the communities in which we hash.

‘Do-not-miss’ DC Red Dress Run wins Top Ten recognition

MARCH 26, 2014 (Washington, DC) – The DC Area Red Dress Run was selected by the Hash website www.RedDressRuns.org as one of the world’s Top Ten Red Dress Runs of 2014. RedDressRuns.org works to promote and protect the Hash House Harriers’ Red Dress Run tradition. In addition to its website, the RedDressRuns.org network includes a companion Facebook page and Twitter feed.2014-Top10-RDR mini

Among the qualifying factors for the Top Ten selection were support for charity, connecting the Red Dress Run to the Hash House Harriers’ brand, hospitality, good organization and other qualities that make the event unique.

The DC Red Dress Run will be held on Saturday, October 11, 2014 and is its own Hash House Harriers entity. The Hash House Harriers easily qualify as the largest – and certainly the most madcap – running club in the world.

The greater Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan area is home to 17 kennels (hash chapters) that run on at least a monthly basis. While the New Orleans Hash House Harriers enjoy the distinction of hosting the world’s largest Red Dress Run, the DC “megacenter” owns bragging rights to the largest Red Dress Run exclusively for hashers (and invited guests, of course).

2000RedDressDCHashers from all across the USA and even across the globe traveled to attend the 2013 event. In 2014, 600 hashers are expected to participate in an event that enjoys a reputation for being well-organized, serves quality food and craft beer, and has high-quality “gimmies.” It doesn’t hurt that Washington, DC is a tourist destination and has some of its best weather in October. Aligning the date to coincide with the Columbus Day holiday weekend was no accident.

A Thursday night trail with the Every Day is Wednesday Hash House Harriers on Wednesday Hash kicks off the start of DC’s 21-year-old Red Dress Run weekend tradition. A trail and a zany lingerie party on Friday night is the stuff of hash memories. The actual Red Dress Run on Saturday winds past monuments, statues, government buildings and legions of stunned, camera-wielding tourists. A stop for beer at a DC pub is included in the registration fee. The celebration continues with night of dancing, dinner and beer. Sunday features both a morning and afternoon recovery trail. Brunch is also an option.

While many elements come together to make this a do-no-miss Red Dress Run, DC also leverages the highly visible event to give back to the community in which they hash.

When registration opens on April 1, 2014, participants will have the option of making a donation to the official Red Dress Run charity in whatever amount they chose. The DC Red Dress Run relies entirely upon voluntary contributions and special events throughout the year. The Lady in Red was instrumental in helping organizers find a way to make a charitable difference without using anyIMG_5912 of the base registration fees.  An oversized check for more than $5,000 was presented to the Gary Sinise Foundation to help wounded warriors at the 2013 Red Dress Run. U.S. Army Capt. (Ret.) Leslie Nicole Smith, clad in a red dress, was on hand to represent the organization.

Other Red Dress Run venues selected for the Top Ten list include, Ascension Island in the South Atlantic; Panama City, FL; Phoenix; Montreal; Brussels; New Orleans, Bisbee, AZ; Las Vegas; and Brisbane, Australia.

An invitation to Alaska in 2015

 ALASKA IS KNOWN FOR ITS VAST WILDERNESS, extreme climate conditions, and its beautiful but deadly wildlife. But since 1995, the expanses of Alaska and her wildlife have been no stranger to the Anchorage Alaska Hash House Harriers (A2H3). A2H3 is one of only a few kennels in Alaska and definitely the most active. Hundreds of Saturdays a year, A2H3 battles the Alaskan shiggy, whether it’s extreme cold, monsoon rains, deadly mud flats, angry moose or hungry bears.

Alaska Interhash2015-3Some noteworthy unique annual events are, CAMP HASH and 12 Beer Checks of Hashmas. Every two years, so semiannually, takes place the Great Alaskan Interhash. This is a 3 to 4 day event that includes several trails that offer only the best in Alaskan shiggy. In the land of the midnight sun, hashing can happen literally 24/7 with little to no visual impairment from darkness, for the sun will shine down all night for hashing shenanigans. Visitors are treated to Alaskan hospitality which means food and beer. Not just any food, everything from halibut, moose, and caribou to king crab, salmon, and even bear.

The beer is in a class all its own. The kennel has several homebrewers who always offer up a large selection of sacred nectar. Plus, the kennel is sponsored by Midnight Sun Brewing Company, the second oldest brewery in Alaska. Quality craft brews and home brews surround every activity during the Great Alaskan Interhash.

The annual Red Dress Run is a major event every year; however, it is always done in coordination with the Interhash every other year. The 2015 Red Dress Run is aiming to be one of the biggest events in A2H3 history. The run will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Alaska RDR cheersFor those who want to experience hashing in Alaska first hand, this is the event to attend. The Red Dress Run offers a tricky trail that will allow you experience a little of everything Anchorage has to offer. Start saving your hash cash now for the 2015 Great Alaskan Interhash which includes the 2015 Red Dress Run.

Focus on ‘hashpitality’ helps earn Phoenix H3 Red Dress Run recognition among world’s top ten

JANUARY 15, 2014 (PHOENIX) – The Phoenix Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run was selected by RedDressRuns.org as one of the world’s Top Ten Red Dress Runs of 2014. Among the qualifying factors for the Top Ten selection were support for charity, connecting the Red Dress Run to the Hash House Harriers’ brand, “hashpitality,” good organization and other qualities that make the event unique.

2014 Phoenix RDRThe Phoenix Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run will take place in Scottsdale on Saturday, April 12, 2014 and is sponsored by the Hash House Harriers, a group which qualifies as the largest – and certainly the most madcap – running club in the world.

 The Phoenix Hash House Harriers (PH3) bills the event as “one of the largest and wildest Hash House Harriers parties in the United States.” Their Red Dress Run will be wrapped in three days of hashing, pool parties, dancing and ever-flowing beer and wine. A self-hosted, room-to-room party starts things off at the hotel on Friday night (book now, PH3 strongly urges, because it always sells out).

2014-Top10-RDR miniThe Red Dress Run on Saturday begins at the hotel headquarters, provides magnificent city views and ends up just a mile away from the start. A shuttle back to the hotel operates until 1:00 a.m.  A free hangover trail will be provided Sunday morning.

Contributions to the Red Dress Run charity are voluntary, and participants are strongly urged to consider making a donation through the registration process. The donation amount is up to each registrant. The registration process also allows the opportunity to purchase Red Dress Run swag.

Not only do Phoenix hashers welcome out-of-town hashers, they put their money where their mouth is by extending a reduced rate registration fee to visiting hashers. The hotel operates a free airport shuttle and Phoenix hashers say that they would be happy to offer rides to those who make arrangements through their Facebook page.

2013 Phoenix RDR photoNearly half of the 240 attendees in 2013 were from out of town, and with the emphasis on hospitality, PH3 hopes to push total attendance to 300-350 in 2014. Registration is now open to members of the Hash House Harriers across the globe and to their invited guests.

Other Red Dress Run venues selected for the Top Ten list include Ascension Island in the South Atlantic; Panama City, FL; Montreal; Brussels; New Orleans; Bisbee, AZ; Washington, DC; Las Vegas; and Brisbane, Australia.

Panama City Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run named among world’s Top Ten

If you find yourself in Panama City, Florida over the Valentines weekend, you will find that red is an especially appropriate color. That’s because the Panama City Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run will take place on Saturday, February 15, 2014.2014-Top10-RDR Tiny

The Panama City Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run was selected by RedDressRuns.org as one of the world’s Top Ten Red Dress Runs of 2014. Among the qualifying factors for the Top Ten selection were support for charity, connecting the Red Dress Run to the Hash House Harriers’ brand, “hashpitality,” good organization and other qualities that make the event unique.

Now in its 14th year, the Panama Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run has gained a reputation as a low-cost, high-quality event at this vacation destination along the Gulf of Mexico.

Panama City Red Dress Run circleRoughly 120 hashers attended each of the previous two Panama City Hash’s Red Dress Runs, with about 80 percent of them out-of-towners. In 2014, organizers anticipate hosting 145 hashers, many of whom will stay longer to enjoy the blue waters and pristine white sand beaches of Florida’s panhandle (the hotel typically extends the hash discount beyond the weekend).

The fun begins Friday night at the hotel bar. It’s located just across the bridge from Panama City Beach, which offers additional bars and restaurants for those so inclined.

The Saturday venue for the Red Dress Run offers postcard-quality views of St. Andrew Bay. Locations along the pub crawl are within close proximity of each other, affording hashers more opportunity to do what they do best. Fees do not increase as the event day approaches, but late registrants may miss out on the creative personalized “gimmies” for which the PCH3 Red Dress Run has gained a reputation. Marketed strictly to hashers, the event also welcomes non-hashers.

In keeping with The Lady in Red’s request that every Red Dress Run benefit a PCH3 RDR logocharitable cause, $2 of each registration will be donated to the  Warrior Beach Retreat and the Central Panhandle Chapter of the American Red Cross. In this way, the members of PCH3 are giving back to the community in which they hash.RDR-web

Registration is now open to members of the Hash House Harriers across the globe and to their invited guests.

Ascension Island to host one of the world’s top ten Red Dress Runs of 2014

The Ascension Hash House Harriers St. Valentines Red Dress Run and Charity Ball. Ascension Island, South Atlantic.

Red Dress Run date: Saturday, February 1, 2014.

2014 Ascension red dress beach hut 2013 Ascension red dress (2) 2013 Ascension red dress (1) 01 Top 10 Ascension 02 Top Ten - Ascension Want to hash a place most of your friends cannot even find on a map? Bring a red dress and come to the Ascension St. Valentines Red Dress Run and Charity Ball. Normally held the weekend closest to Valentines Day, in 2014 it was moved up to coincide with the celebration of the Hash’s 1500th run.

This year’s Red Dress Run will end up a beach hut overlooking one of the world’s most pristine beaches and will be catered by AIFC Spear and Game Fishing with a South African-style BBQ featuring grilled tuna, wahoo and dorado caught that morning.

The 2013 Red Dress Run had 33 participants from five countries while another 40 joined the post lube. This may not sound like many, but with an island population of fewer than 800, this represents a full 10 percent of the local population. Over 300 GBP was raised in 2013 for the Girl Guides of Ascension. This year’s charity is the Ascension Island Charity Fund, which provides funds for purchase of needed equipment for the local hospital.

Trails for the family-friendly Ascension Hash typically involve hiking over volcanic rock. Due to the terrain, the down-downs are not done at the circle checks, but are reserved for the end.

Situated on one of the most remote islands in the world, Ascension is part of the British Overseas Territories that also includes St. Helena and Tristan da Cunha. For the visiting hasher, Ascension provides unparalleled hiking and walking opportunities, from Green Mountain with its tropical Cloud Forest, and Letterbox Plateau which features dramatic volcanic sculptures and seabird colonies. There are 32 separate beaches. February is a particularity good time to visit Ascension because the annual Green Turtle migration is in full swing, and last year over 30,000 nests were logged on the island. Water temperatures are 28 C and world-class diving, snorkelling and fishing is available. Travel to Ascension is limited; for the best information please visit http://www.ascension-island.gov.ac/visiting-the-island/ or email aigenquiries@ascension.gov.ac

2014-Top10-RDR TinyThe Ascension Island Red Dress Run and Charity Ball was selected as one of the worlds Top Ten Red Dress Runs of 2014 by RedDressRuns.org. Qualifications for the top ten include hashpitality, support for charity, good organization and other qualities that make them unique.
