Milwaukee, WI - On Saturday, about several dozen joggers who belong to a  "drinking club with a running problem" made their way through the newly opened KK River bike trail and made a beer pit stop by the river. Everyone jogging in the group wore red and men wore red dresses for the occasion. 
The group is called the Waukesha Hash House Harriers and jog between four to five miles making at least two beer pit stops every week or so. Several volunteers called the Hares mark a trail with chalk or flour so the Hounds, who are the joggers follow it to find some beer. But some trails are falsely marked to allow the slower Hounds to catch up with the rest of the pack.
Saturday's pack run required wearing red and men just had to air out their bottoms by wearing dresses. 
The main Hound leader who's alias is Stupidman says, that he inherited the Hash and has been running for the last 12 years. None of the joggers are suppose to drink and drive, according to another member.
