Date / Time: Monday, August 10th at 6:30 PM (on out 6:45pm)
Location: Fremont area:
Looking at setting a great trail and my goal is that your feet won’t hit concrete or asphalt the entire run. Probably 5-6 miles with a mystery liquid stop near the On In. Bring bug spray and a torch just in case…but I will sweep to make sure nobody turns into mosquito food.
Fastest way to get there from GR is to take I-96 West to the Nunica exit (about 5 minutes past Coopersville). Turn right/north at the Nunica Exit and follow Maple Island Road for 25-30 minutes until it finally runs into M-82. Turn right/North onto M-82 and go 4 miles to Roosevelt Road.
Turn left/west on Roosevelt Road and go 1/2 mile to Main Street (small dirt road on right). Turn right/North on Main Street and we are first driveway on left.
Notes: A Michigander at heart, but now a resident of Guengzo, China, a fellow Hasher will be setting a trail hash in his hometown of Fremont, Michigan. More details to come in the upcoming days.
Come prepared for a jaunt throughout forests, singing, and a final stop which will include grilling. And beer. And. More. Beer. There’s always beer. It’s the Hash House Harriers.
Call 231-335-8797 for any questions. See you Monday.

ANNUAL RED DRESS RUN
> For 2015, Lansing’s annual Red Dress Run, will be held on Saturday, February 14th (Valentines Day!) commencing at 12:00 Noon at the Midtown Brewing Company, 402 South Washington Square.
> We shall depart from MBC about 1:00pm and this year we shall head south along Washington Ave to Lansing’s historic Reo Town. We plan for a photo op at the Reo Town sign. Then we’ll continue to Lucky’s Sports Bar, Leroys Classic Bar and Grill, turning back north to the Reo Town Pub, then concluding at The Waterfront.
> As in previous years, all participants (male and female) are expected to don themselves in the most flattering RED DRESS (or other red garb . . . skirts, muumuus, tunics). As a highly fashionable pack, we’ll move from bar to bar showing the Capitol City what style is all about.
> Since it is Valentines Day, and the weekend before Fat Tuesday, there are two special opportunities this year. First, bring valentines to give out to any and all of your special Red Dress Run buddies. Second, Reo Town Bar is celebrating Mardi Gras with, yes, crawfish and special festivities – accessorizing in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold is encouraged.
> While its great fun to run with your similarly attired participants, the Greater Lansing Hash House Harriers (GLH3) believe it is important to consider those who are having difficulties at this time of year. A $10 donation is requested, with all funds collected to be given to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
> Last but not Least, while this is called the Red Dress Run, no actual running is necessary; participants may walk or stroll at any pace they are comfortable with. Finally, please drink responsibly and plan for safe transportation.
