ungrounded outlets

Can I run a single ground wire to each outlet or do I have to replace all the wiring in the house. Wiring was per code when built in 1962

Howdy it is awfully hard to snake a single wire to all outlets. or re wire the entire homes recepticles.

To answer your question, yes it is permitted by code to just run a bonding ground wire to each outlet and to the bonding post in the main panel.
