Race Information

Join the throng of about 1,000 for the 5k run, or enjoy a bit more elbow room in the 10k, typically drawing just a few hundred runners.

Organized to honor former BYU President Rex E. Lee who passed away that year as a result of cancer, the Rex Lee Run run continues to be sponsored by the Simmons Center for Cancer Research with the help of the BYU Cancer Awareness Group. The run provides not only an opportunity to recognize the cancer fighters in our own lives, but presents an opportunity to support cancer research in our own community. The proceeds from the race go to fund cancer research fellowships at the BYU Simmons Center for Cancer Research.
