About our event

The Canary Challenge is an annual cycling event and 5K walk/run that raises money for early cancer detection research. Our amazing community of cyclists, volunteers and sponsors come together each year to take part in one of Northern California's premier fundraising events. Together we have raised millions of dollars to fund research programs that are improving cancer detection and survivorship. Join us!

Fundraising dollars benefit the Canary Foundation, the world’s first non-profit organization dedicated solely to the funding, discovery and development of tests for early cancer detection.

The event is a premium ride experience with a focus on three attractive target audiences: riders from Silicon Valley companies, cycling enthusiasts who participate and closely follow cycling as a sport, and Stanford University and Hospital communities who support innovation in cancer research and care. 

The Canary Challenge uniquely brings together world-class stars of road cycling combined with a breathtaking coastal route and food and drink that is representative of the best Northern California has to offer.
