About Obliteride

Now in its ninth year, Obliteride is an unforgettable community fundraiser for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. People of all ages, abilities, and speeds join up and take action to fuel lifesaving cancer research. Usually, participants ride our in-person 25-, 50-, or 100-mile bike routes or join our 5K Walk/Run in Seattle, Washington. For 2021, we’re replacing our weekend event with a safe virtual season. 

Why we Obliteride

To celebrate life, honor loved ones, and help cure cancer faster. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of every dollar you raise goes directly to cancer research.

We Obliteride to save lives — and we're just getting started.

Obliteride is more than an event: it's a global movement to cure cancer faster. 

Whether we clip in, roll out, sharpen our pencils or strengthen our dance moves, we're a community dedicated to ending cancer and supporting every person facing this disease. More than 17,000 of us have fueled $32 million+ in fearless research at Fred Hutch. Together, we’re turning our compassion into action. Now, we need you!

Obliteride's warmth and welcome support is hands-down the best on the entire West Coast.
