On Saturday, October 20, 2018, Feed My People, a local non-profit Food Pantry and Help Center, will host our Annual Race Against Hunger from 8 AM until 12 PM at the Gold Star Pavilion Area at Jefferson Barracks Park in St. Louis. This will include a competitive 5K race (administered by Fleet Feet), and a 1 mile Family Fun/Run Walk (the Fun Run participants will be sponsored by family and friends). Every participant receives a commemorative t shirt, and everyone who crosses the finish line at whatever pace will receive a finisher's medal. We will also offer awards (1st - 3rd in age categories plus overall 1st - 3rd placers for the 5K, and individual and team awards for the Fun Run/Walk for the greatest number of sponsors, the largest team, and the most funds raised). We're expecting 500 competitive runners and 500 Fun Run/Walk participants.
There will also be an after race party (starting at about 8:15, some of those 5K runners are pretty fast!). After Race Party Fare will include water, Gatorade, juice, bagels, cookies, fruit and granola and protein bars.
