Does this dress make me look fat? How about these running shoes ?

Why were 100-200 (I think) people (mostly men) wearing red cocktail dresses chasing two people in bunny costumes laying a flour/chalk running trail through downtown Portland this past weekend?

While visiting Portland this weekend we were driving through downtown and happened upon the above described scene. Our friends who live in the city didn't know (but they've only been there 2 years).

Sooo, any ideas? Quick google action indicates it might be the Red Dress PDX, group but I didn't see anything listed for this past weekend...

Best answer: I think the key part of your question is "Portland", but I digress. It sounds like a Hash House Harriers event.

Best answer: Hashing, specifically the Red Dress Run.

Doh beat to the punch. I heard about hashing for the first time when they caused a terrorism scare at my local Ikea :P
