Red Dress Run takes over downtown Moline

The streets of Molines were a sea of red Saturday afternoon during the 11th annual Red Dress Run benefitting Clock Inc.

MOLINE, Ill. — The streets of Moline were painted red with people dressed in crimson clothing flooding the streets for the 11th Red Dress Run on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 19.

The annual event, put on by the Quad Cities, Hash House Harriers sees participants donning bright red dresses, bracing for the cold and running the streets for charity.

This year, the run supported Clock Inc. LGBT+ Community Center, one of the area's leading LGBTQ organizations.

Participants met up at about noon at Bierstube in Moline before kicking off at 2 p.m. for a run lasting from three to six miles for individual runners.

"It's super cold out, so we're very happy that we had a great turnout. We had a 161 people register this year. So that's more than we expected," organizer Dominic Nache said.
