Huntsman 5K - June 16, 2018



This family-friendly fun run starts and finishes in the beautiful Fort Douglas area of the University of Utah campus and begins shortly after the Huntsman 140 riders leave their starting line.  There is a Kid's Fun K run option for children ages one through twelve.  All participants will receive an event t-shirt and are encouraged to stick around after the run for the Finish Line Festival where we will celebrate with live music, food, prizes, and activities for everyone.  This charity event is donating 100% of all funds raised to support cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.



Designate your funds

Did you know that you can designate your funds to a specific type of cancer?  If you wish to do so, you can ensure that all the funds you raise will be donated to a specific type of cancer research when you register. The cost of registration is $35 for the Huntsman 5K and $12 for the Kid's Fun K. All registration fees and funds raised through this event go to support cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute.


Train with us!

Our running team meets on Saturday mornings to train together, and we have multiple coaches to help you get ready for your run. Our team is ideal for runners of all levels, whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or have never ran before.
