Seen at the Park: Ladies (and Men) in Red (Dresses)

Well, no, you don’t see this every day. On Saturday, the NYC Hash House Harriers made their annual run in red dresses through the Park mid-afternoon as the Folk Festival was underway. It was quite the sight to see! They gathered in one of the east side alcoves and then made for a run to the Fountain where they posed for photos.
Their web site says:

We run around the streets, alleys and parks of the NYC metro area in our never-ending quest for beer, food, good times and beer.

Hashing . . . it’s a mixture of athleticism and sociability, hedonism and hard work; a refreshing break from the nine-to-five routine. Hashing is an exhilaratingly fun combination of r*nning, orienteering, and partying, where bands of Harriers and Harriettes chase Hares on eight-to-ten kilometer-long trails through town, country, jungle, and desert, all in search of exercise, camaraderie, and good times.

Alright, then.

p.s. They welcome you to join in!
