Due to the circumstances regarding COVID-19, the John Wayne Cancer Foundation is consistently monitoring local and federal government orders to evaluate how to appropriately proceed with the John Wayne Grit Series events. If anyone registered does not feel comfortable attending, we will be incorporating a Virtual Option. For anyone no longer wishing to participate, we will administer a refund for your registration. Thank you for your understanding and continuing the fight against cancer with GRIT!


Show your grit in the fight against cancer by running or walking through spectacular John Wayne movie locations and rugged western landscapes. The series benefits John Wayne Cancer Foundation, so every step you take advances the fight against cancer through pioneering cancer research and programs. Stay dusty out there, partner!


Given the current circumstances surrounding the pandemic, the John Wayne Grit Series is incorporating a virtual run component! To take part, Register and Fundraise today, then let Greg (greg@johnwayne.org) know you will join the event virtually. Run during the scheduled race weekend, and email Greg a screenshot of your run tracking app showing that you went the distance. JWCF will mail you your participant shirt and finisher mug after the event.
