Welcome back to the 9th Annual Bandana Bolt 5K!
All fitness levels welcome.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, 13thirty Cancer Connect will host the Bandana Bolt as a live and virtual event. This means our 13thirty Champions will run, jog, and walk #TogetherApart.
At this time, we are excited to offer an in-person event at Seneca Park on Sunday, June 6, 2021!
The 2020 Bandana Bolt looked a little different last year, but nearly 200 13thirty Champions across the U.S. helped teens and young adults with cancer cross the finish line. Anyone, anywhere can participate virtually again and enjoy a fun-filled race weekend.
