Our mantra is “Cancer moves fast and WE have to move faster.” The Huntsman Sports Festival is more than just a fun event, it’s an incredible cancer fighting community of runners, walkers, cyclists, and volunteers who help us move faster by supporting cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.

In 2017, Huntsman Cancer Foundation combined the iconic Huntsman Ride (formerly the Huntsman 140) with the community-centered Huntsman Run that includes a 5K, 10K Trail and Kid’s Fun K to create a single-day event, making the Huntsman Sports Festival the perfect way for anyone join us in our mission to eradicate cancer. 

Everyone starts and ends at the beautiful Fort Douglas area of the University of Utah campus, and cheers ring out across Fort Douglas Field as the wheels and feet of friends and family cross the finish line. Celebrate your achievement with everyone at the Finish Line Festival with food, drinks, live music, giveaways from sponsors, games, and a kid’s zone play area.

Participants can invite their friends and families to participate with them and to donate to their personal fundraising webpage. 100% of funds raised support cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.

The genes for breast, ovarian, melanoma, head and neck cancer, colon cancer, and more, were all discovered here.
