Race to Beat Cancer 5K

We're looking forward to seeing you Saturday, September 15, 2018, for our 38th annual Race to Beat Cancer 5K

The Race to Beat Cancer 5K in Washington, DC raises much-needed funds and awareness for cancer research for the MedStar Washington Cancer Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. On this day, we celebrate survivors and honor those who have lost their battles with cancer. Join the Washington, DC community as we promote healthy lifestyles and continue the fight to #BeatCancer

Strollers, wheelchairs, and dogs are welcome on the 5K course. Participants are also welcome to carry water bottles, food, and personal items with them along the course. A bag check will be provided. Race to Beat Cancer 5K is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. 

All proceeds benefit MedStar Washington Cancer Institute at MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
