We are holding three different runs to suit everyone’s needs. There is a 10k, 5k and 3k fun run. In addition we have two events specifically for children – a 1k fun walk/run for those aged 6 to 10 years called the Junior Dash and the Little Heroes 1k for children 5 and under. Anyone can enter the event and we encourage runners/walkers of all abilities although please ensure you have trained sufficiently and are fit to do your chosen run/walk and if in any doubt consult your doctor.
Our 1km Little Heroes event is particularly special as it is held specifically for children aged 5 years and under, accompanied by an adult and of course other members of the family. Most children who are diagnosed with neuroblastoma and who sadly die from this disease are under the age of 5, and this fun walk is in their honour and is a walk by children for children.

We would encourage your children to dress in superhero costumes and to wear a frangipani – our colours and logo associated with Neuroblastoma Australia

Prams are very welcome in the 1k Little Heroes event – we would love the whole family to participate in the 1k.

Prams can take part in the 3k, 5k and 10k however, if you are running with a pram please start at the back of the run.

Wheelchairs are welcome to participate in the 3k, 5k and 10k fun runs, however please review the route first and be aware that there are a few steep inclines along the course.

You do not have to fundraise – however it certainly helps us raise the funds we need to help childhood cancer as the event ticket mainly covers the cost of the event itself. When you finish registering and buying your tickets you will automatically be provided with a fundraising page by Every Day Hero with instructions as to how to set it up.  Please do visit their website if you need any assistance or email us on or visit our fundraising page. We would appreciate your support in helping to raise funds for neuroblastoma and there are prizes for fundraising amounts.

When you register for the fun run you will automatically be provided a fundraising page by Every Day Hero. You will then be able to share this page with all your friends and family provided you are aged 18 years and over. If you did not register yourself you will be emailed a fundraising page link and you can set up your page this way – you can also create fundraising teams which can be the same or different to your running teams.

If you get stuck you can always email us at

There are prizes for the highest fundraisers.

Profits from the event will go directly to neuroblastoma research via Children’s Cancer Institute.
