Event Details

Continue the tradition in-person! Run -or- Walk a 5k or 2m! Each Thanksgiving Day the Utica Roadrunners host their annual Run 2 End Hunger with 100% of all the proceeds benefiting local nonprofit food pantries. This event has been running for 38 consecutive years on Thanksgiving morning! The run follows the Utica Roadrunners' Wednesday night 5K Development Run course through Valley View and The Eagle paved pathways.

The 39th Annual Run 2 End Hunger will be held on Thursday, November 23, 2023. Registration is just $10 or $25 per family (3 or more participants) plus a minimum of 3 nonperishable items per person. Registration for this family-friendly (dogs included) run/walk will take place within RunSignup -or- in-person on Thanksgiving Day at the Utica Recreation Center, located at 220 Memorial Parkway, starting at 8am until 8:45am. 

The 5K Run and 2 Mile Walk will start promptly at 9:00am. For those bringing children under the age of 18, a waiver form will need to be filled out during in-person registration. 

All food donations (minimum of 3 nonperishable items per person) can be dropped off prior upon entering the Utica Recreation Center that morning. We'd like to give a special thanks for the support of the Greater Utica Sunrise Rotary Club, for their time collecting food on Thanksgiving morning.
