On Saturday, January 11, the Hunger Runs 5K gets hearts pumping furiously as participants dash through Miles Square Regional Park. In 45-minute intervals starting at 8:30 a.m., each wave of runners vies for glory on a trail with teamwork-encouraging obstacles, which may include archery, spear throwing, tree climbing, and shoe complimenting. Runners must be at least 16 years old and on a team of two or more people. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Destination4Good.

The Hunger Runs 5K

In the unusual parlance of the Hunger Runs 5K, runners are “dedications,” teams are “organizations,” spectators are “assemblies,” and the race is known simply as “the hunt.” The race’s creators, the “huntmakers,” devise a series of obstacles specifically designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie, and they set up “challenge centers” demanding expert bow-and-arrow skills, simian climbing abilities, and courage in the face of flaming objects. Organizations that finish fastest or with the most points in their designated wave earn bragging rights, awards, and cheek pinches from their proud grandmothers. Dedications are strongly encouraged to wear fun costumes and comfortable sneakers and to come bearing team spirit and the will to win.
