16th Annual Run to Feed the Hungry

November 20, 2009

If there is one event that defines East Sacramento it is the Run to Feed the Hungry that takes place on Thanksgiving Day each year. This 10K run and 5K run/walk is attended by massive amounts of people– this year’s participation is expected to be well over 30,000 runners and walkers.

The Run to Feed the Hungry is a true family friendly activity. Children who are too young to walk on their own can be pushed in strollers or worn in baby carriers and the pace is completely set by you and your family. We have made a tradition of getting up early, making cinnamon rolls and enjoying warm cider or hot chocolate before we head out. This year will be the first year for our little 10 month old peanut and we’ve got the scarves, beanies and jogger stroller ready!

Race day looks like this:
7:30-9AM Registration
8:45AM 10K run begins
9:05AM 5K run begins
5K fun runners, walkers, strollers, & baby joggers to follow 5k runners

It is not too late to register and you can even wait until the day of the event to sign up. Registration is $35 for adults ($40 day of) and $20 for children which includes the signature RTFTH t-shirt (subject to availability if you wait until race day).

Don’t forget the whole reason for the event is to support the Sacramento Food Bank:

Run to Feed the Hungry has become an annual holiday tradition for countless area families. Beginning in 1994 with only 800 runners, the event now ranks as Sacramento Valley’s largest annual run & fun run/walk. In 2008, over 28,000 participants attended and we met our goal of raising $750,000 for Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services. As we approach our 16th year we look forward to another record crowd and donations topping $800,000.

The race begins at CSU Sacramento and winds through the streets of East Sacramento. For a map click here and for more information click here or call 916.712.5366.
