2011 Bustin Loose Race to End Breast Cancer

Bustin LooseIt’s that time of year, time to DO SOMETHING ABOUT BREAST CANCER – sign up for the 6th Annual Bustin’ Loose Race to End Breast Cancer which will be held October 2, 2011. This is a 3km, 5km & 10km run/walk event in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (prairies/nwt chapter).

Bustin’ Loose began in 2006 with a small committee speculating on whether we could attract 100 participants willing to pay $25 each, enabling the event to donate $2,500 to the cause. Boy, did we under estimate the generosity and enthusiasm of Medicine Hat and area. In the five years this event has been held, we have raised more than a QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation who is working to create a future without breast cancer – funding some of the most relevant breast cancer research programs in the country.

  • Online registration and pledging is open now.
  • We’ll still accept mailed in entries and pledge sheets at package pick up. If you are collecting pledges for the cause, please feel free to use the online option for everyone in your address book as well as carrying a pledge sheet for those friends and family you see in person.
  • 2011 tiered registration fees: Early Bird (Until August 31/2011) – $30.00 / After August 31/2011 – $40.00 / Last Minute (After September 30/2011) – $50.00 /*Committing to collect a minimum of $75.00 in pledges waives your entry fee.*
  • For logistical reasons and to ensure the best possible event – PLEASE ENTER EARLY. While we will continue to welcome all participants right up to race time, there will be a limited number of race packages available.
  • Those who wish to raise pledges are advised to register early even if they plan to continue raising pledges up to race day in order to guarantee their spot in the event.

New This Year

  • There’s a new race category for Kids 12 & under.
