A Virtual Race is a way to still be part of our Hero-Up For Children's Cancer community but without the crowds on race day. You can run the race anytime that works for you between September 5-September 12. We will collect and post your results on our website if you choose to submit your time.

You get to support one of the greatest non-profits in support of local children's cancer research! But also, you get an awesome race shirt. The shirts are going to be extra cozy this year.  You will also receive an email with a personalized PDF bib. You will receive two pre-race emails with race instructions: one a week before the race and one at race start time (if you choose to run the race on September 5th). You will receive a text with instructions on how to submit your race results. You will be able to text or upload your photos into our photo gallery.

$35 for any distance: half-marathon or 5k

As always, 100% of our net profits go directly to local childhood cancer research. Either to the pediatric brain tumor bank at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, or to Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI). With support from participants like you, we've been able to donate $155,000 so far. We would like to continue contributing to our cause even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

TBA. We are trying to do a staggered, in-person packet pick up on Thursday and/or Friday before the Saturday race. We will also be automatically mailing the packets that are not local. We will update this when we know how many participants we have and how we can safely distribute race packets.

Kid's can register for the race for free. A race shirt can be purchased for $20 during the registration. Shirts can be mailed but if you are local we would love to have you pick up your shirt on packet pick up day.

In the past we have requested that kid racers donate either a small amount of cash, a toy or clothing. If you would still like to make a donation you can do it through this website here.
