Third Annual Hoofin' it for Hunger Race

Posted: Updated:
MILES CITY -

Miles City runners hosted their third annual Hoofin' it for Hunger Race on Sunday.

Runners gathered early this morning for a 5k, 10k, and half marathon. The competitions were supposed to be held at Fort Keogh, but with the government shutdown it was relocated to the Miles City Airport.

One runner showed some cow-town pride by dressing up in a cow costume.

Carroll College Physics Instructor, Patrick Judge, was the first one to make it across the 5-K finish line.

"I've been running probably since 1980 in general, but I've been trying to race in every county in Montana. Part of the challenge is trying to find a race in every county. So, as soon as I see one advertised I try to schedule it in," said Judge.

Last year, organizers raised over $6,500. Custer Fallon Farm Bureau President, Staci Ketchum, says all the proceeds go to benefit the Montana Food Bank Network.
