Sat September 25 - Fri October 1

Thank you for a wonderful Virtual Race! This was one of our best years yet! Donations are still open and can be made here


Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Race To Beat Cancer will be a VIRTUAL RACE ONLY. You'll have the opportunity to run or walk your 1-mile, 5k, or 10k distance - or bike 25 miles - on any day, at any time, and from anywhere from September 25 - October 1, 2021. Then be sure to join us for our virtual celebration on Saturday, October 2!

The health and safety of our supporters is our biggest priority. While we look forward to seeing everyone at the Race each year, we see this decision as the safest and most responsible option. 

Now more than ever, we need your support for our most vulnerable patients fighting cancer amid COVID-19. For the past 21 years, Four Seasons Washington DC has partnered with MedStar Washington Hospital Center’s Washington Cancer Institute to raise critical funds to support their critical care and ongoing cancer research. Please join us in raising funds for this incredible institution. Participants who raise $100 or more will receive an official Race t-shirt!
