Join us in celebration of the 16th Race Against Melanoma in Indianapolis! Throughout the years, your support of this event has helped raise more than $3.5 million to support advances in melanoma research and skin cancer education programs for children and adults. THANK YOU!
This year’s event includes a timed 5K run, a non-timed 5K run/walk, and a non-timed 1-mile fun walk in and around scenic Lawton Loop in Lawrence. Please note: There will not be on-site registration the evening of the event.
NEW THIS YEAR, every person aged 18 or older MUST register him/herself for the race and personally sign the participant waiver. We apologize for any inconvenience, appreciate your understanding, and are grateful for your support of our mission.

9,500 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Additionally, 560 people are diagnosed with melanoma daily. Outrun the Sun supports melanoma research at top medical institutions throughout the United States. We are honored to support 28 Melanoma Research Scholars who actively seek a cure for melanoma. Funding also supports educational programs that help prevent skin cancer altogether. THANK YOU for your generous support!
In addition to funding melanoma research, race proceeds support Outrun the Sun’s ongoing educational community partnerships. These include programs with Girl Scout councils, youth camps and schools across America. For a complete overview of Outrun the Sun’s programs, please visit our web site at www.outrunthesun.org. These initiatives would not be possible without your support of the Race Against Melanoma!
