WHY RUN HUNGRY? Running Hungry is the opportunity to share in a typical Haitian discomfort: an empty stomach. To better identify with the Haitian people, we are encouraging runners and walkers who are physically able to forgo breakfast and RUN HUNGRY. We ask that you refrain from eating on race day until you have crossed the finish line. There will be plenty of food following the race to silence the RUMBLE in your tummy. Join us as we run on empty for Haiti, and help satisfy the rumblings of an entire nation…Run Hungry!
