According to legend passed down by the Hash House Harriers, a female newcomer was once invited to a hash in San Diego and, completely unaware she was about to run a trail, showed up in a red dress. Despite being mocked for her ensemble, the fabled female ran the trail like a champ. Other runners soon began wearing red dresses as a joke, and, as word of their antics spread, the tradition became an annual event held all over the country.
