Cougs Vs Cancer Run Race Description

 

Cougs vs Cancer Run! 

*REGISTRATION OPENS DECEMBER 16th* 

Sign up to join BYU's fight against cancer! 

The Cougs vs Cancer Run is a proud annual tradition at BYU, now in its 28th year! The event is an exciting 5k with a route that goes all throughout BYU campus. 100% of ALL PROCEEDS go to fund BYU student cancer research fellowships through the BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research. The race honors Rex E. Lee, former President of BYU and founding Dean of the J. Reuben Clark Law School, who passed away from cancer in 1996.

Brigham Young University's Simmons Center for Cancer Research is committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and every community member who attends our Cougs Vs Cancer Rex Lee Run. Concerns related to COVID-19 have affected every part of society. After careful consideration of the present circumstances, Church Educational System (CES) leadership has decided to temporarily restrict all large gatherings on campus. For more information, please click here for the official CES statement and click here for BYU's official statement.

Want to participate in the fun? Here’s how:

-   Register for the race

-   Pick up your race t-shirt and bib at the Wilkinson center on March 10th or at the race on March 11th!

-   Don't forget to post pictures or videos using #yirun and tag @cougsvscancer.

 

Throughout the many years of this race, our mission remains the same: to raise funds for full-time student cancer research fellowships, providing BYU undergraduate and graduate students the chance to begin their careers as the next generation of cancer clinicians and researchers.

Fun run, inspiring cause!

I loved this run! I ran the 10k, and it was a smooth course around Provo. The spirit and atmosphere at the race are contagious, and I'm a big supporter of the cause. 100% of proceeds go to cancer research.

Great run Fun and a good family atmosphere. Be prepared to run a steep incline for the first two miles. The last four are all down hill. Good luck and don't forget the massage and treats after the race.

Bring your family, stay for the fair!

I've only run the 10K once, but I've volunteered three times, and I loved both! The atmosphere is the best part, with lots of families doing the 1K and 5K, and the fair is the best (free stuff, yay)! I like that there didn't seem to be much traffic between runners and strollers/walkers etc. The coolest part about this race is that it supports BYU students doing cancer research at the Simmons Center, but second to that is how open they are to feedback if you just email them--always improving!

Fun for the whole family, and for a great cause!

My favorite thing about this race is everyone can participate. From the mom pushing a baby in a stroller to the hardcore athlete. Everyone is there to support a loved one who has battled cancer. I hear next year you get to run through campus! How cool is that?! I love seeing the BYU celebrities (basketball team, Coach Rose, BYU Sports Nation). The carnival after is super fun with lots of swag. All to support cancer research and BYU students. Awesome. Go cougs!
