2017 Race Results!

Welcome to The Gutbuster – Get Your Gut Moving!


Race Information

Join us Sunday November 5, 2017 for a family fun run and walk in beautiful Healdsburg California. The event will include 3 courses. One will be a 12.5K partial trail run up and over Fitch Mountain, a 10K around Fitch Mountain and a relatively flat 3K around town. All net proceeds will benefit non-profits that support stomach cancer research and support of patients and family that are impacted by cancer. Event shirts are available for participants. 
Shirt and sizes are only guaranteed with registration completed by October 14, 2017. There are no refunds and event will happen rain or shine. 


To fight stomach cancer through awareness, research, and uniting the caring power of food and people.

How Can I help?

By registering for the fun run/walk your dollars will be donated to the nonprofits No Stomach for Cancer and Sonoma County’s Ceres Community Project.

Why These Nonprofits?

No Stomach for Cancer supports cancer research provides education and awareness of stomach cancer. One fact being that stomach cancer is the 3rd most common cause of cancer deaths in the world, but receives very little funding from the National Cancer Institute. Stomach cancer is hard to detect and is typically diagnosed in late stages.

Ceres Community Project promotes “Food as Medicine” by providing primarily low-income people struggling with serious illness with free and home-delivered nourishing organic meals, education, and caring support of community.

Our Driving Force

Allen, our son, husband, father, brother, veteran, firefighter, and friend to many lost his life to stomach cancer at the young age of 30. He received the caring meals and warm support of the Ceres Community Project.
