You think you’re good? You think you’re tough? Come try our course…IT’LL EAT YOU UP! The Cannibal is a 5/10/15K run or a 5K walk that starts in beautiful downtown Hannibal, and proceeds south along the Mississippi River and straight up one of Hannibal’s toughest hills, the infamous Lover’s Leap, before returning to the downtown area. The Cannibal is a U.S.A. Track and Field certified course.

Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit the Helping Hearts Campaign at Hannibal Regional Foundation.  

The Cannibal is held during National Tom Sawyer Days, which offers an assortment of activities for the entire family.
