RACE INFORMATION

Together we're feeding the hungry. Help us raise $20,000 to feed 1,000 families.

Join us for the 10th Annual Outrun Hunger Charity Event at the Commerce Township Hall and nature trails. Outrun Hunger is a 5k event for charity partnering with two food pantries, Hospitality House of Commerce and Open Door Outreach Center of Waterford, to help feed Lakes Region families during the holiday season.

What's unique about Outrun Hunger? 100% of the funds raised, (excluding online transaction fee), goes back to our community. Participants love the fact that 100% of their registration and/or donation helps feed the hungry.

Did you know that a family of four can enjoy a hot meal during the holidays with a contribution of only $20.00? Pantry directors Donovan (Hospitality House) and Karen (Open Door Outreach Center), gave these statistics! Approximately 915 families and 1,982 individuals walked through their doors in need of food during November and December 2019... the demand often overwhelms the supply.

Since the beginning of Outrun Hunger in 2011, we've raised $119,212 feeding 5,960 families. Benefiting Hospitality House and Open Door Outreach Center.

As a thank you, register by October 31, 2020 and receive a $10 Kroger gift card, Sponsored by The Kroger Co of Michigan.*

To share in our celebration, The Kroger Co of Michigan is sponsoring 250 10th-Anniversary Finisher Medals. Opted-in during registration while supplies last.*

*Must be present to receive $10 gift card and finisher medal.

Check-in: Starts at 9:00 am. 5k begins at 10am with socially distanced wave starts every 10 minutes. Please arrive at pre-registration 20 minutes prior to your wave start time to limit the number of participants in one area. Sorry, no race day registrations this year.
