WHY RUN HUNGRY? Running Hungry is the opportunity to share in a typical Haitian discomfort: an empty stomach. In order to run hungry, we ask that you refrain from eating on race day until you have crossed the finish line. Those who take part will receive a wristband showing your sacrifice and an extra donation will be made in your name.  Join us as we run on empty for Haiti, and help satisfy the rumblings of an entire nation…Run Hungry!
