Pelotonia is a three-day experience founded in Columbus, Ohio in 2008, that includes a weekend of cycling, entertainment and volunteerism. Through its first twelve rides, Pelotonia raised more than $217 million for cancer research.

Thanks to its generous funding partners, American Electric Power Foundation, Huntington Bank, L Brands Foundation, and Peggy and Richard Santulli, Pelotonia is able to direct 100 percent of every rider-raised dollar to cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

But we know, Pelotonia was never just about the ride. It’s always been about setting and achieving an ambitious goal and raising critical funds to fight a disease that impacts us all. And, that’s exactly what we’ll do again this year. Independently, but together in spirit and purpose. This year, you will define Pelotonia. And your legend.

2023 Pelotonia is August 5-6

Registration opens March 1.

One goal - end cancer

Join Ohio State Newark's Peloton: Team Buckeye - Rolling for a Cure.

We ride for people we know who have been affected by cancer. We ride for the incredible doctors and researchers who work every day to end cancer. We ride because teamwork and effort is what being a Buckeye is all about. Ask anyone who had been a part of Pelotonia and Team Buckeye. Pelotonia is a profoundly inspiring experience. Experience for yourself the pride and connection that comes from being apart of Team Buckeye as a rider, virtual rider or volunteer.
