About This Activity

This year, Megan's Race for a Cure has two options - a Live Race at McCarthy Park on Sept 26 or a Virtual Race you complete on your own between Sept 26-Oct 3. Let's come together as a community while keeping everyone safe!

Here is how it works...

Step 1. Register to run/walk the 5k or 1k, and invite your friends to join you!  Select McCarthy Park Live Race - to do your 5k or 1k run/walk on Sept 26. Select Virtual Race - to do your 5k or 1k run/walk on your own between Sept 26 - Oct 3.

Step 2. Pick up your t-shirt at McCarthy Park on Sept 25 - details to follow. If unable to pick up your shirt in Upland, we will ship it to you in the US for a fixed $7.50 fee. 

Step 3. For the Live Race - meet at McCarthy Park start line on the morning of Sept 26 at your designated staggered start time - details to follow. For the Virtual Race - run/walk the distance on your own, either on the official MeganSavageMemorial 5K Race Course or any 5k course you choose, then submit your time so we can add it to the results leader board. Post a picture of your live or virtual race to Facebook or Instagram using #MeganSavageMemorial5K to help us bring awareness to childhood cancer!

Step 4: Enjoy the feeling of helping a child with cancer!

Our top priority is keeping everyone safe!  For the Live Event on Sept 26, we're planning staggered starts, social distancing, masks worn at start & finish line, and hand sanitizing stations throughout. More details to follow. The virtual race is for anyone not able to be out in public for personal or medical reasons or if you live out of the area and wish to participate. Registration fees from both races help raise vital funding for our Patient Aid Programs to help families navigate pediatric cancer through this pandemic.  

We're hopeful Megan's Race will happen on Sept 26 at McCarthy Park, however, if the live event is canceled due to pandemic safety guidelines or measures outside our control, your live race will convert to a virtual race or you will have the option to forward your registration to our 2021 race!

Let's come together as a community to support a great cause!
