The Hunger 5K is a fun, family-friendly way for people of all ages to help those in need. Proceeds benefit Matthew 25: Ministries' work with the poorest of the poor and disaster victims in Greater Cincinnati, throughout the U.S., and around the world.

The race also kicks off the Hunger 5K Food Drive, which raises food products for local pantries and shelters.

Since the race began, over 950,000 pounds of food has been distributed to people in need in Greater Cincinnati.

Important Dates

Packet Pickup

Participants are strongly encouraged to pick up their race packets (bib number, long-sleeve t-shirt & goody bag) prior to race day at Matthew 25: Ministries (11060 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, OH 45242) during the following times:

  • Thursday, November 7, from 3 PM to 7 PM
  • Friday, November 8, from 10 AM to 6 PM

Race registration will be available during these times at race week registration rates. All team packets will be grouped together for packet pick-up. One person may pick up for the entire team. Please bring a list of all team members in order to cross-reference with our records.

Important: Due to the updated event safety policy, goody bags will only be distributed at packet pick-up and on race day after every participant has completed the race. Participants who do not wish to wait until the very end of the race (approximately 10:30 AM) on race day to pick up your goody bag, should make arrangements to attend packet pick-up.
