The Race

So much to see, you’ll forget you’re running.

Running in costume with hundreds of other charitable souls, is nothing like plodding away on the treadmill. This is 3.1 miles of people-watching delight. Join in on the most unique 5K of the year.

The gun goes off at 7:30. The start (and finish) line is at 3617 Woodburn Ave.

New year, new route. This year, we are running from Dana Ave. to Victory Parkway into the cemetery and back!

The Party

Come in groups. Come solo.
Just don’t come as yourself.

Just beside the finish line, this costume race becomes a costume party. You’ll have free food and drinks, reasonably priced craft beer and live music. It’s like being a kid again – dressed up, walking from booth to booth and picking up treats.

In its 24 years, Run Like Hell has raised over $1.5 million to go towards the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This year, while rounding up your friends and picking out your costume, we challenge you to form a team and start one hell of a fundraiser.

Dressed to Impress


After the race, you'll find the food and drinks you need to re-fuel, the live music to get you rocking and the adult beverages to take you long into the night.

The Cause

Something worth running for.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

What is cystic fibrosis (CF)? Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States have CF. With your support, you will help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation reach its goal (CFF.org).

Adding Tomorrows Every Day

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking CF from every angle. Our mission is to cure CF and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.

When the Foundation was established in 1955, children with CF rarely lived long enough to attend elementary school. Due in large part to the Foundation's investments in innovative research and comprehensive care, many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.

But, we still have much to do. With your support, you can help the Foundation reach its goal — a cure for all people with cystic fibrosis. For more information, visit www.cff.org.
