About the Race

With more than 9,000 participants expected,  theRace for the Cure is the area's largest fundraiser for Susan G. Komen Nevada. Seventy-five percent of the funds raised by the Race, and all other Komen events, stay right here in Nevada to support programs that serve the uninsured and underinsured in the fight against breast cancer. The remaining 25% is directed to the Susan G. Komen Awards & Grants Research Program to find the cures.

 

The starting line is at Las Vegas Blvd. and Clark Ave., with the finish line at Fremont St. and 6th St. Participants can register for a 5K, which is approximately 3.1 miles, or a 

1-Mile Fun Walk. You may choose to run or walk either route. If you are unable to participate on race day, you may register to Sleep In for the Cure®.

 

Event start times:

5K Timed Run - 8:15am

5K Walk - 8:20am

1 Mile Fun Walk - 8:45am

Ways To Participate

 

Join a Team

A Race for the Cure team consists of 10 or more registered participants who come together to have fun, raise funds and fight a devastating disease. Team members can be male, female, kids, babies and adults. It doesn't matter if they sign up to Sleep In for the Cure®, walk the 1-mile or run the 5K because everyone on your team does not need to participate in the same event. Teammates can be friends, family, co-workers or anyone else who would like to participate.

 

Individual Registration

You don't need a team to make an impact. Register as an individual and you alone can be a part of the global movement to end breast cancer forever.

 

Sleep In for the Cure®

Unable to make it to the race? No problem! You don't need to lace up your running shoes to show your support. Register to Sleep In for the Cure as an Individual or as part of a team and you will receive a comfy T-shirt to wear while you snooze the day away.

 

Kids for the Cure (Youth category)

Who says you have to be a grown-up to Race for the Cure? Children ages 2-12 can register as Kids for the Cure. On Race day, they will be able to run with the big kids in their official Kids for the Cure t-shirt.

 

Babies for the Cure (Youth category)

Finding the cure takes baby steps too! Your little one can stroll or roll their way along the race route and show their support in the fight against breast cancer. Babies for the Cure participants will receive a special baby bib and strollers are welcome!
