Hallowrun for Hunger is this weekend

— The event will also feature a free run for kids. Runners in the Free Kids Fun Run should register by emailing the child's name and age to hallowrunforhunger@gmail.com. Kids under 5 will take part in a shorter race, while kids 6 to 12 will run half a mile. The kids should check in at McKinley East between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m. Parents will be asked to sign a waiver, and participants will receive a bracelet identifying them as runners. The kids’ run is flat and zombie-free.

Spectators should park at Arrowhead Lodge or McKinley West. The Cicero Police Department will be on hand to help direct traffic and provide assistance.

Runners in the 5K are encouraged to attend packet pickup from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at Tully's Good Times Restaurant at 7838 Brewerton Road, North Syracuse. Race day pickup will also be offered from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the McKinley East pavilion.

Runners can wear costumes as long as they do not interfere with their ability to see or to run. In fact, a costume contest will follow the 5K.

Pulling together an event of this magnitude has been a lot of hard work.

“The past few weeks have been a little insane,” Veronica Westfall said. “Liz and I have been in the office every day for 23 days straight. Sometimes I feel horrible for her, and then I remember it was her idea.”

If you’d like to donate to the Food Bank but you’re not a runner, you can do so at the website, as well. For more information, visit hallowrun.com or email hallowrunforhunger@gmail.com.
