Race to Feed the Hungry
Date: Thursday, November 26, 2015
Time: 8:00 am
Location: Russ Freeman Park, Idaho Falls, ID

When the idea for this race was presented to local runners and businesses, many estimated that between 50 and 75 participants would come out and run on Thanksgiving Day. Indeed, just two days prior to the race, 78 persons had registered. Early on Thanksgiving morning 2005 we came out and marked the course, set out the hot chocolate, and put up our registration table. Then runners and walkers of all shapes and sizes started to arrive. The registration line grew and grew. On that 18 degree autumn morning, over 200 people came out in support of this wonderful community event, and a community tradition was born.The 2006,7,8,9,10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 Run Feed the Hungry events were the largest holiday races of their kind in the entire state of Idaho.This year we are preparing for 3,000 runners, joggers, and walkers to join us in Freeman Park on Thanksgiving Day.
