Nearly 1,000 runners, all of them women, are expected to participate Saturday in the Red Dress Run for Women in Hartford.
The annual run organized exclusively for women is put on by the Hartford Marathon Foundation.
The event features a 3.1 mile run or walk which stars and finishes in the Elizabeth Park Rose Garden.
Participants are asked to help by making a donation to HMF Can, a yearlong food drive that benefits several local food pantries via Foodshare.
The kids run kicks off at 8 a.m. followed by 5K at 8:30 a.m., for more information or how you can still participate head to the Hartford Marathon website here.
