February is American Heart month and the kick off for the Go Red for Women campaign. Don't miss out on the annual TCTC
Red Dress Hash Run. The American Heart Association and Novant Health are partnering with TCTC to make this the best Red Dress Run ever!
The Rules: The dress code is simple. You’ve got to wear red and it’s got to be a dress (or a skirt). That means EVERYBODY, including men. Accessories are highly encouraged but not required. So get yourself over to the closest Goodwill or consignment shop and find that perfect little red running dress.
Hash runs are fun runs that are led by a "hare" who, given a ten minute head start, leaves a trail of flour or "hash marks" for the pursuing pack to follow. Some marks are easily found, others are more obscure and require the lead runners to split up and look in several directions. This gives slower runners a chance to catch up. Hash runs often involve unusual areas or terrain. They are not races, but rather social runs that can be enjoyed by the elite racer or casual runner. No great running speed or skill is required.
