Red Gold to host Second Annual 5K Run

Elwood, Ind. — Red Gold, America’s largest privately-held tomato manufacturer, is proud to announce the Second Annual “Run to Crush Hunger”, competitive 5K run and family walk. Registration and the start of the race will begin at Callaway Park in Elwood on Saturday, Oct. 12 with check-in at 7:30 a.m. and the race starting at 9 a.m. “Elwood and Madison County is excited to support Red Gold for this great opportunity that gives back to East Central Indiana,” says Mayor Ron Arnold.

Red Gold is thrilled to be working with several Indiana-based sponsors and the local community to help with the fight against hunger. “All proceeds from the race will be donated to the local Morrisett Center Food Pantry and Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana,” said Tim Ingle, Red Gold Vice President of Human Resources. Last year the race boasted nearly 800 participants from 59 cities, 45 counties and 8 different states which led to a donation of $14,816.21. Red Gold is challenging the community again this year to get involved and celebrate a good cause while enjoying some family fun.

Following the Run to Crush Hunger, Red Gold will be hosting the 28th Annual Red Gold Chili Cook-Off and the Colts ‘Blue Saturday’ in Elwood on Saturday, October 12th starting at 11:00 a.m. “Having all three events in Elwood makes ‘Crush Hunger Saturday’ a great destination for all ages to enjoy fun activities, great chili to sample, a unique run and the Indianapolis Colts,” says Colt Reichart, Red Gold New Media Marketing Manager. Returning to help manage the event is Tuxedo Brothers, an Indianapolis based race management company, who boasts other great events like the Indy 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, Drumstick Dash and Purdue Boilermaker Half-Marathon. This year’s awards include cash prizes, unique trophies to first place male and female participants, gift certificates, Red Gold gift boxes and additional awards in male and female age brackets. Everyone participating in the Run to Crush Hunger will receive a performance shirt and a souvenir goodie bag filled with surprises.
