Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be turning the 2021 Race To Beat Cancer into a VIRTUAL RACE ONLY. This year you have the opportunity to run or walk your 1K, 5k, or 10k distance on any day, at any time, and from anywhere during the race window which is open from September 25 - October 2, 2021.

Our biggest priority is for the health and safety of all Race To Beat Cancer families, participants, volunteers, and community. It is our commitment to provide the safest environment as possible. Now more than ever we need your support for some of our most vulnerable fighting cancer amid COVID-19. Join us today to maintain our commitment to cancer research and supporting those that are on the frontlines treating those battling cancer.
