How much does it cost to participate?

Registration fees:

  • $12 for the Kid's Fun K (ages 1-12)
  • $35 for the Huntsman 5K
  • $55 for the Huntsman 10K Trail

Participants are encouraged to help raise funds through their personal fundraising page and can receive incentives for reaching different fundraising levels. We recommend that everyone set a goal of raising $100.

Is this a race?

The Huntsman 5K is not timed, but will have clocks along the 5K route. The Huntsman 5K is a non-competitive and family-friendly fun run (or walk) to support cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute.

Where does the money go?

100% of all funds raised go to support research at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. By funding efforts to better understand the beginnings of cancer and more effectively treat cancer, you help relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors, and their families when you give. Cancer patients, caregivers, and donors are encouraged to come together in a myriad of ways to fight cancer individually and collectively through fundraising programs and events like the Huntsman Sports Festival.

How do I raise funds?

A personal fundraising page is created when you sign up to run or walk in the Huntsman 5K, and it’s a great tool to track donations and progress towards your goal. Visit our TOOLKIT for tips and ideas that have helped other fundraisers.

Are gifts made through my fundraising page tax deductible?

Yes, Huntsman Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All donors will receive an emailed receipt at the time of their gift.

What support will be on the courses?

The 5K course will have a water stop at both mile 1 and mile 2. The 10K course will have four water stops along the 6.2 mile route at approx. mile .8, 1.6, 3 & 4.4. Water & Gatorade will be provided at all stations.

How will the courses be marked?

The 5K course will be marked with blue route arrows on the road. The Kids Fun K course will be marked with yellow route arrows on the road. The road portion of the 10K course will be marked with pink route arrows on the road. The trail portion of the course will be marked with both pink marking tape hanging from trees/bushes and pink pin flags, with a few printed signs at road junctions that have more than one trail split.
