Race Information

Help fight brain cancer by joining the Annual Head for the Cure 5K- Midland. Head for the Cure 5K events are unique tributes to those fighting brain cancer and those who have lost their battles. Celebrating the lives and legacies of those with brain cancer has always been central to the atmosphere at Head for the Cure events. Some participants show up simply to race and many show up in solidarity for a loved one, past or present. Together, they strive to defeat brain cancer step by step. The 5K events are not only successful fundraisers, but unique tributes to those who are fighting brain cancer and those who have lost their battles. Their memories carry on through the teams that formed around them, and the teams return year after year to celebrate their legacies.

Prevent Injury & Run Your Best

Running demands a lot from our bodies, if we’re not keeping up with maintenance, then it will eventually break down.
