The Huntsman SportsFest ride (formerly the Huntsman 140) is an epic ride through northern and central Utah. This is a non-competitive, single-day, fully supported ride, with multiple distance options that make it the ideal ride for both beginner and seasoned cyclists to participate and make an impact.

Each participant will receive a Huntsman SportsFest t-shirt at check-in, and those who fundraise $500 or more will receive the coveted Huntsman SportsFest cycling jersey (check out our incentives page for more information). Fundraising is not required to participate, however, we encourage each participant and team to set a goal and try! With 100% of donations benefiting groundbreaking cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute for children and adults, every fundraiser and donation is making a difference.
