The Run for Hope is a race that benefits Home Sweet Home Ministries. The races include a 10K, 5K and Kids Fun Run on the west end of Constitution Trail. These distances and routes offer runners a unique opportunity to race in the beautiful open country of West Bloomington and McLean County.

Bib pick-up is available at Fleet Feet Bloomington during regular store hours on Friday 4/5 and Saturday 4/6; or from 9:30 am - 10:30 am before the race on Sunday. All participants are encouraged to pick up their bib prior to the race to help us avoid a crowd and line on race day.

The race start location is the Ace World Wide Warehouse (formerly the Home Sweet Home Ministries Warehouse) at 1700 West Washington Street in Bloomington.
