FAQ

ORGANIZATIONS

What are Organizations?

We refer to your team as an Organization. You choose who you want as your teammate(s), and together will form an Organization.


Name your Organization and come to the Hunger Runs dressed in your custom outfits or uniforms that will best represent who, or what, you are!

Can we add Dedications to our Organization after initial registration?

Yes! You can definitely add members to your Organizations.


To join an existing Organization:

  1. Click on the REGISTERATION page
  2. Select INDIVIDUAL DEDICATIONS REGISTRATION
  3. Choose the correct wave time their Organization registered under. Then choose their Organization name and proceed to complete the registration process.

Make sure everyone in your Organization signs up for the same wave time. Once a wave time is SOLD OUT, we will not be able to transfer Dedications.

Can we transfer our registration from a new Organization to an existing Organization?

Yes! Send us an email to support@TheHungerRuns.com with a request to switch organizations. Give us your name, wave time, and new organizations name and we'll add you to their team!

How can we manage our Organizations and invite others to join?

You can manage your Organizations and invite other Dedications to join by clicking HERE.

How do we create a new or join an existing Organization?
  1. Go to the REGISTRATION page and begin the registration process.
  2. TO CREATE A NEW ORGANIZATION: select 'Create an Organization' to choose your team name. Complete the rest of the registration information and when you get to 'Other Information', you will select your preferred wave time.

What time should we arrive at the Hunger Runs?

As Organizations, you should allow yourselves to arrive at least 1 HOUR before your scheduled wave time. That should give you enough time to park, register and check-in, stretch and ready yourselves to win. If you arrive early, check out the festival grounds and grab a bite to eat before your wave begins.

What should we bring?

  • Official form of Identification (drivers license, passport, photo ID, school ID, etc.)
  • Signed copy of your Release of Liability Waiver
  • Campaigns outfits/costumes
  • Cash
  • Extra change of clothes
  • Absolutely NO weapons or sporting equipment (real or fake)

What do we wear?

  • You can wear any running, training, sporting clothing and apparel. It is a 5K run with obstacles, so wear something comfortable and that you wouldn't mind getting a little dirty.
  • Costumes and outfits are OK. Wear your most eccentric costumes and outfits to represent your Campaigns! Show your creativity and stand out from the other Organizations! Get your friends and families and dress up together!
  • Sneakers or comfortable shoes.

ALL Organizations will receive:


  • The Exclusive Hunger Runs Official event tee

Each dedication must sign their own Release of Liability Waiver. Be sure to register your Organizations together in the same wave times. Click the registration page HERE!

Can I race as a single Dedication?

Yes, but wouldn't it be more fun to run with a friend? I heard you're a great motivator!
