Red dressers

Out for a walk on Saturday and see Jay Cupp and brother Barry, and their friend Joe, and others, parading in red dresses, for the annual Hash House Harriers Red Dress Run, which has its origins in Hasher lore:
... a newcomer was invited to a hash run ran by the San Diego Hash House Harriers. Unbeknownst to her it was a running group and she attended the run in a red dress instead of running clothes. Upon being mocked for wearing such an outfit, she ran the trail and went into a hot tub with the red dress still on. Other Hashers began wearing red dresses as a joke, and the tradition soon became an annual event that spread across the world.
The Cupp brothers own and operate Midwest Cash in Carbondale and Marion. I'd put a link to their site, but it causes Firefox to crash.... (thank G for autosave).
