Visalia Emergency Aid Council’s (VEAC) “Race Against Hunger” is on the most thankful day of the year! Leaves are changing colors, weather is cooling down, and yes, the perfect running/walking weather arrives.
Our 17th Annual “Race Against Hunger” is the largest 5K run in the Central Valley. Our firm belief that no child should go to bed hungry has fueled our passion for over 90 years. VEAC’s Food Pantry assures our community we will be here to provide supplemental, nutritious groceries for families with children, (2500) seniors and veterans during the holiday season. Step-by-step this race is giving back to its community!
The first 200 who sign up will have the option to receive an extra beanie included with your race packet
3.1 miles too easy for you? Add on the pumpkin option and prepare for an extra challenge! Grab a pumpkin, crush out your 3.1 miles, and earn a scarf in addition to your normal race swag for completing the Tough Turkey Challange!
While not a requirement by any means, share your photo at #veacturkeytrot21 when you post any photos on social media so the entire community can see!
There will also be a prize for the largest pumpkin carried in the race.
Teams are a fun way to encourage friends, family, and co-workers to join on Thanksgiving morning.
