You will see unique and whimsical outfits everywhere you look at this one-of-a-kind event. Participants come clad in red from head to toe, many finding their dresses online, at thrift shops, and from the back of their closet (or grandmother’s closet). You will often see homemade dresses and costumes as well. On top of all the fun, food, and excitement, you will feel warm and fuzzy inside knowing you are helping the local community while having fun at the Red Dress Run. Proceeds from the race benefit over 100 local charities!
