71 days, and counting, until the 2013 New Orleans Red Dress Run.
And although registration began on April 1st, it’s not too late to sign up, but you might want to hustle if you want to get in for a lower price.
Scheduled for Saturday, August 10 – the beer begins at 9:30 A.M., entertainment at 10, and then the race starts at 11 A.M. rain or shine. Come join about 5,000 of the closest friends you’ve never met before to don a red dress, run/walk/crawl for about two miles, and help raise money for multiple local charities.
As a matter of fact, in the past three years alone the New Orleans Red Dress Run has raised more than half a million dollars, and distributed it out to almost 100 various New Orleans charities.
Registration is currently $45 a person, but that price goes up $10 on June 1 – – – which is TOMORROW. So if you’ve been meaning to sign up but have been procrastinating (maybe a little more concerned about where you’re going to get your dress) now’s the time.
Click here to register – and then you can go back to dress shopping.
And remember, male or female – the wearing of a red dress is mandatory – let’s have some fun!
