Team Cancer Sucks

Team Cancer Sucks is an endurance sports community on a mission. While training hard for group and personal success, we also race to raise needed funds to support cancer patients access the medical care they need to live. Why? Because cancer sucks!

Sorry I can't make it. Can I still donate? 

Yes! Click on the register button to make a donation in any amount. 100% of donations go towards helping cancer patients access medical treatment. 

Can I bring my kids?

Yes, of course!! The more the merrier. And there is a 100M Dash event just for the kids!

Can I run in the street?

Unfortunately not. The GP Police won't support the race if we are in the street. Please stay on the sidewalks and stay alert for cars.

When does the race start? 


The gun goes off at 9:00am sharp on December 24th! Please plan to arrive ~30 minutes early to park and receive your Team Cancer Sucks buff. You can park on Lewiston Rd.

Will there be aid stations?

No. If you need water, sports drink, or energy bars, please carry them with you. 

Will the race be timed?

We won't have timing chips for your shoes, but we will have a giant stop watch.

How much does the event cost?

This year we are doing a donation-based registration. Please donate whatever you feel comfortable with this holiday season. Let's knock cancer out of the park! 

Can I wear a costume?

Yes! Any and all holiday costumes are highly encouraged! 

Will the event be canceled due to snow?


We will be running in snow or shine so be prepared for cold conditions. Remember, being temporarily chilly is nothing compared to what cancer patients have to endure. 

Can I donate on race day? 

Yes you may! Cash or check (made out to Team Cancer Sucks/Lazarex) are accepted. 

I don't want to run or walk, but can I still help out?

Yes! I'm looking for volunteers to help with photography, registration, handing out medals, and keeping time. E-mail Carolyn if you're interested at
