Participants can also register online at rexleerun.byu.edu/register.php or by mailing a registration form and payment to E-181 BNSN, Provo, Utah 84602.

The race honors former BYU President Rex E. Lee, a former U.S. Solicitor General and an avid runner. Lee died of lymphoma in 1996. The first Rex Lee Run, organized by cancer survivors in his honor, was held a few weeks after his passing.
