The 10th Annual Boxer Brief 5K Run/Walk raises the level of awareness to colorectal cancer while offering education in an effort to stop our country’s second cancer killer in men and women. Hitting Cancer Below the Belt (HCB2) is celebrating 10 years and the raising of over $800,000.000 in funds to stop colorectal cancer from taking anymore lives.
The 2022 event is a hybrid so the virtual challenge option is back! In 2021, we had participants from 14 states, two from Ireland, and one from Dubai. Anyone can join the cross country “movement” to prevent and defeat colorectal cancer!
Join us at City Stadium, Home to the Richmond Kickers or in your own neighborhood! The virtual challenge option is for those living outside of Richmond, Virginia or for those interested in an entire weekend challenge. The goal of the virtual option is to collectively accumulate 3,100 miles as participants across the country participate. Join the cross country “movement” to prevent colorectal cancer! The miles accumulated can be achieved through the following activities: Walk, Run, Ride, Swim or Paddle! Yep! Collect those miles as you participate in multiple activities throughout the weekend of June 11th – June 12th! Perfect for the triathlete, the runner who also likes to hike, our swimmer friends, and for those rowing and paddling on the water. Participants still receive their Boxer Brief T-shirt! No need to record a time, we just need your miles.
NEW in 2022
The High School Challenge! High School students can win money for their schools and designate the department to receive those funds. The top three finishers in the High School Challenge can win $500, $250, and $125 respectively. The remaining $125 will be awarded to the best group or individual costume. The student rate to participate is just $28 through January 31st and then remains at a reduced rate of $30.
At the live event on June 11th, all the 5K participants at City Stadium will go off at 8:00am and chip timing will be offered. Prior to the 5K our smaller participants have the opportunity to participate in the Caped Colon Crusader sprint. Chidden under the age of eight are encouraged to wear their favorite cape and show how fierce and fast they are as they sprint towards the finish line. Registration for the Caped Colon Crusader sprint can be found on site on race day. There is no charge for the sprint.
