Northborough – The Northboro Hash House Harriers Running Club is inviting runners and walkers of both sexes to participate in the seventh annual Red Dress Run Saturday, Oct. 21, at 12:30 p.m.

The run is open to the first 100 adults over 21 to register, and it begins at the Morse Tavern, 85 E. Central St., Natick. Registration is $26.90 + pay as you go, and includes a 5K run and tickets for beer or water. All net proceeds will be donated to local charities.

The run’s 5K course is a closely guarded secret because it will be spontaneously marked by lead runners called “hares.” The hares will leave baking flour and chalk marks for the runners to follow, to mark a path leading to different drink stops where they will have a rest, socialize, and have a beer or soft drink.

The event honors a club member who attended her first club run in 1987, while wearing a red dress, instead of running clothes. After being mocked for wearing that, she ran anyway. Other runners of both sexes began wearing a red dress as a joke, and soon the Red Dress Run became a tradition around the world. Men and women must be over age 21 and wear a red dress to participate!
