Can you hear that? That is the hungry Cannibal and he is coming soon to a Lover’s Leap near you! Registration is now open for the 18th Annual Hannibal Cannibal and Fun Run on Saturday, July 6. Register at!

The Cannibal, which has traditionally included a 5/10k run and 5k walk is also adding a 15k run to its lineup this year. The running events will begin at 7:00 am (rain or shine) and the walk will begin at 7:05 am. The Fun Run, for children 10 and under, will follow the Cannibal and begin at approximately 9:00 am.

You talked and we listened! As our runners/walkers have requested, this year’s 5/10/15k Run and 5k Walk race packets will include a technical shirt. Also new this year is the addition of a Clydesdale division, a new popular division that is being offered in other races. This division is a separate, but optional division for men over 200 lbs and women over 150lbs. These divisions (men’s and women’s) will be treated just like the individual age group divisions with regards to awards.

All proceeds from this year’s Hannibal Cannibal benefit the Healthy Way Campaign which is raising funds for a community fitness trail. Mark your calendars now to join us in July! For full details or to register for the Cannibal, please visit or call the Foundation office at 573-629-3577.
