Run for the Hungry was created in 2000 by Michael London, then founder and CEO of PureFitness Athletic Clubs in San Diego. His vision was to have a premier event on Thanksgiving Day in Downtown San Diego that would benefit people who face hunger in the community. All profits from this race are donated to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and hunger-relief programs such as the JFS Food Mobile and HandUp Food Pantry managed by Jewish Family Service of San Diego.

 

The event started as a 5k race at Seaport Village. It grew by leaps and bounds over the following years, and moved to Petco Park to accommodate the growing number of participants.

 

The extended 10k course has presented challenges with trolley crossings and rerouting traffic, but the San Diego Police Department has done an outstanding job providing officers on a holiday to keep race participants safe. Most recently, the event was moved to the front of Horton Plaza mall at Broadway Circle.


Participants enjoy being able to run or walk through beautiful Downtown San Diego and the Historic Gaslamp Quarter. The event attracts all levels and abilities from athletes to families looking to get some exercise before sitting down to a Thanksgiving meal. An added bonus to the event includes the participation of dogs, and each registered dog receives a bandana and dog treats along the course.

 

Run for the Hungry has remained a fun family tradition on Thanksgiving Day for the past 16 years. Plus, it is a great way to get outside and burn a few calories before indulging in your favorite holiday dishes. Plus, for every participant, at least 185 meals will be raised through each runner’s race fee to help individuals and families in need
