Event Information

Family friendly 5K run/walk starting at 7:30 to benefit Truth Evangelistic Ministry and its efforts to support the people of Haiti. Course is flat, fast, and shady through the neighborhoods around Truth Evangelistic Ministry. RUN HUNGRY WHY RUN HUNGRY? Running Hungry is the opportunity to share in a typical Haitian discomfort: an empty stomach. In order to run hungry, we ask that you refrain from eating on race day until you have crossed the finish line. Those who take part will receive a wristband showing your sacrifice and an extra donation will be made in your name. Join us as we run on empty for Haiti, and help satisfy the rumblings of an entire nation…Run Hungry! Race day registration and package pick up 6:00 -7:00 am. To better indentify with the Haitian people, we are encouraging runners and walkers who are physically able to forgo breakfast and RUN HUNGRY. There will be plenty of food following the race to silence the RUMBLE in your tummy. Post race food includes rice and beans, pulled pork sandwiches, and homemade desserts. Awards: Overall, master, and grand master male/female for the run and top 3 in standard 5 year age groups. Overall and master male/female for the walk and next top 10 finishers. All Kid’s Run participants will receive an award.
