As popular a fundraiser as any, the Run Against Breast Cancer Phoenix is an annual Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k running event aimed at raising funds for the American Cancer Society. 

The Grand Canal Trail in Phoenix is a 25-mile continuous trail along the Grand Canal, and the oldest pioneer canal on the North side of the Salt River. As you can imagine, this makes for an incredible running course for beginners and experienced runners alike, rippled with a scenery of the canal as well as far-out mountainous landscapes to accompany and ease the struggle. 

This race, though stress-free, does have a start time of 8:00 am PST. Beginning at the Grand Canal Trail, runners will set off along a 13.1 mile course defined as moderately challenging before making their way back to the start line/finish line.

Unlike other popular running events, this race isn’t a competitive field. With no chip times or cut-off times, the event instead promotes a stress-free environment emphasizing the real reason you’re their; to fundraise for cancer. 

For those still in it for the documentation of their achievement, the race still provides every registrant and finisher with a commemorative t-shirt and finisher’s medal, along with some fun swag bags to go with it!
