Brought to you by the Shun the Sun Foundation and the Town of Queen Creek

Shun the Sun Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, raises money to build shade structures and educate the community on skin cancer awareness and prevention.

The Queen Creek 5 is the ONLY official race in the town of Queen Creek! We work with the Spring into QC Festival to bring four amazing races and fun for the whole family.

The more success we get with our Queen Creek races, the greater opportunity we will have to hold more races in Queen Creek. Help us spread the word about staying healthy and fighting against skin cancer!
