About Us the Huntsman 5K


The Huntsman 5K and Kids K is a family friendly fun run for cancer and has raised over $720,000 since beginning in 2014. The run begins and ends in the beautiful Fort Douglas area of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. 100% of all registration fees and donations go directly toward expanding cancer research for children and families at HCI. Each runner is encouraged to fundraise $100. Registration is $35 per 5K and $10 per Kids K with over 1,000 participants expected to run this year.


The Huntsman 5K is held in conjunction with the Huntsman 140, a non-competitive cycling event all raising money for cancer research. The combined event creates an even bigger opportunity for families, companies and friends maximize their impact on cancer research here at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI).
