Expo will be at the New Orleans Fairgrounds, on the ground floor near the paddock and will be open from 4:30 - 9:00PM on Thursday and 4:30 - 9:00PM on Friday. We encourage all participants to beat the heat, and avoid the lines on Saturday by cumming out to the Expo to pick up your bib and wristband and gimmes. Oh yeah, and did we mention, there's plenty of free beer. You can get your packet and mingle with the other Red Dress Runners over a few drinks. Remember to bring your photo id and look for the line with the first letter of your last name. Also, everyone must pick up their own packet. We cannot release bibs or wristbands to anyone not listed on the waiver.

FAQ
A brief list of factoids to make your day easier and safer.

  • Can I transfer my registration?
    Yes. Check out http://www.neworleanshash.com/rdrtransfer.asp
  • Can I customize my bib this year?
    Yes. Folks seem to enjoy cumming up with their own bib number. Up to 8 characters. Just visit http://www.neworleanshash.com/rdrcustomize.htm after you register.
  • Can I bring my pet?
    Sorry no pets allowed.
  • Can I bring my ice chest?
    You bet. No large ice chests and ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS. If you want to bring some adult beverages to the party be sure they're not in glass containers.
  • Can I bring in a folding chair?
    Sure. Bring a couple if you like.
  • Can I bring a pop-up tent.
    No tents allowed. We will have over 54000 square feet of shade available.
  • Can I bring my under-aged dependent child?
    Nope. Since this is a drinking event we cannot admit anyone under the age of 21. Every participant must show their photo id when collecting their wrist band
  • Can I pick up my husband/wife/sister/brother/son/uncle's packet?
    Nope. We have to check each person's ID when giving out packets. No exceptions. You must pick up our own packet.
  • Why do I have to wear my wristband when I pickup my packet. What if I don't want to wear it to work on Friday after the Thursday expo.
    We check your ID when you pickup your packet. Then we put a wristband on you. This way we know that you're not giving entry to the event for someone underage. If you can't wear your wristband to work on Friday then we suggest you pickup your packet Friday evening at the expo or Saturday morning.
  • Why don't you post the race course?
    Well, first off, this ain't a race; it's a run. And in keeping as closely as possible with the tradition of hashing we do not divulge the course ahead of time. You overachievers will just have to figure it out on Saturday.
