Hunger Run will merge with Negative Split to fight hunger

The Hunger Run, a collaboration of the Union Gospel Mission and Second Harvest to raise awareness and fight hunger, will merge with the Negative Split half-marathon/10K/5K for the next race.

The combined event will use the name Negative Split, which is aimed to carry the idea of a strong start and even stronger finish as runners and as advocates to fight hunger.

The reason for the merger is to better accommodate the needs of runners and walkers while also growing its partnership with Second Harvest and the Union Gospel Mission.

Union Gospel Mission Development Director Wil Wilhelm said the new collaboration will extend the impact of the event on behalf of people in need.

“Working with Negative Split has increased our sense that we’re all in this together. The more people get involved, the wider our message will spread and the greater the impact will be on the people who need our help to lead healthier lives,” said Wilhelm.

Second Harvest and the UGM encourage past Hunger Run participants to take part in Negative Split because their fundraising efforts will support the same cause – hunger in the Inland Northwest.

The next race will be on April 7, 2019, and starts in Kendall Yards. You can register for the Negative Split run here.
