Stride Against Cancer is organized by the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and is the organization’s largest fundraising event it takes place on Sunday January 31st, 2021. The funds raised will help finance the Society’s many programs and activities.


In early 2021, the Cayman community learned that Mr. Derek Larner, running coach and enthusiast passed away from pancreatic cancer. Derek was an integral part of our Stride walk/run every year and we can’t imagine Stride without him. Therefore, in an effort to honor all Derek did to help others in Cayman CICS is dedicating the Sunday Jan 31st Stride Against Cancer 2021 to Derek Larner.


Stride participants are encouraged to write the name of the person they are Stride in honor or in memory of someone they care about on the back of their Stride shirts so we expect many will choose to write Derek’s name this year. Purple is the awareness ribbon color for pancreatic cancer so can’t help but think of Derek this year as we look at the purple runner in the Stride logo.


Staggered start times: 6am, 6:30am, 7am and 7:30am


Maximum 500 people in each start time. Arrive for your preferred start time - Wristbands will be issued - First come, first served. 


Registration opens January 1st


Cancer touches everyone. What makes Stride Against Cancer different from other charity walk/run events is the connection that participants and volunteers feel with each other and with the cause.


There are over 1300 participants and more than 100 volunteers between the walk/run in George Town and the one in North Side. Both events are non-competitive.


Additionally, school children all around the island Stride Against Cancer within their schools on the Friday before the main Stride events.


The event attracts people of all ages and from all walks of life and truly reflects the diversity of the Caymanian community. It is a family event with people coming together united in the common goal of striding against cancer.


We hope you and your organization will join us and be a part of the largest walk/run in the Cayman Islands.
