About This Activity

Proceeds for the 2016 Run for Hunger 5k will go to support The Church @ War Hill Community Outreach Program. Through the Community Outreach Program, food is distributed twice a month to families in need. The Community Outreach Program also operates the Grocery Garage which sells groceries at a discounted price to help with the cost of feeding the average family.

Registration for the 5K is $25.00. We ask that you also bring non-perishable food items on race day to help feed families and individuals in our community.

The 5k Race will be on the track of Atlanta Motorsports Park. This will be a night time event so expect lots of glow in the dark goodies. The 5k will begin at 8:30pm.

Fun Run for children under age 10 beginning at 8:00, cost is $5 or five (5) non-perishable food items per child.  Fun Run participants will not receive a race shirt.

The go karts at AMP will also be running until dark (karts are available for an additional fee). Suitable for various ages and/or skill levels.
