Fred Hutch Obliteride is the largest and best-organized fundraising event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest! Every August, we join up for one powerful weekend to ride, walk, and run; honor loved ones; and support lifesaving science at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Coworkers, survivors, family, and friends. Eight-year participants and first-time adventurers. Everyone ready to turn hope into action by supporting prevention, treatment, and cures.
To cure cancer faster! Thanks to our sponsors, every participant-raised dollar supports breakthrough research at Fred Hutch.
What’s your Obliteride stride? Our diverse routes are beautiful, well-organized, and fun!
From the awesome music at our Friday Night Kickoff Party to the buzz of event day, Obliteride is one of the biggest, best-organized, and most popular fundraising events in the Pacific Northwest.
Sign up online. Every participant has an online Participant Center, a home base with tools to help with fundraising and more.
Cyclists select a 25-, 50-, or 100-mile route. Our untimed walk/run is 5 kilometers long and perfect for individuals, groups, and families.
Every Obliteride route has a minimum fundraising commitment. Last year, nearly 2,500 participants raised funds from more than 17,000 donors. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of these gifts go directly to research.
Ride solo or join a team. In 2019, more than 80% of participants enjoyed the fun, inspiration, and camaraderie of a team.
Before the event, participants receive support for team-building and fundraising through email, our website, events, and more.
One of the best parts of Obliteride happens the Friday before event day! Enjoy live music, food, and fun — free for participants and one guest.
Routes begin in waves; cyclists begin before the 5K. Event weekend is an uplifting experience of community, food and entertainment, and energy that lasts all year.
Obliteriders understand the suffering cancer causes. Many are survivors. Together, we celebrate life, honor everyone who has faced cancer, and help build a healthier world.
More than 600 volunteers are critical to making Obliteride happen. Volunteers have fun, make friends, and help fuel cures.
Participants return year after year as a way to reconnect, enjoy Seattle’s gorgeous summer, and continue their commitment to help cure cancer faster.
Have fun, make friends, and help cure cancer faster. See you Saturday, August 8.
