About the Run

Run2Cure Neuroblastoma is a set of fun runs organised by the registered charity, Neuroblastoma Australia. It is set in The Domain, one of the most iconic locations in Sydney. Now in its seventh year, the event is the charity’s largest fundraising event for research into the aggressive childhood cancer, neuroblastoma.

Families affected by neuroblastoma, friends, running groups, school and corporate teams, come together to show their support by participating in either the 1K Little Heroes Walk, 2km relay and/or the 3km, 5km or 10km runs.

The run is an opportunity for friends and families to make a significant difference for children affected by neuroblastoma by raising vital funds for research into this aggressive childhood cancer.

This has to be one of the most scenic runs in Sydney. The 10 km is two laps of the 5 km which runs from the Phillip Precinct within The Domain, down by Mrs Macquarie’s Chair taking in the amazing views of Sydney Harbour.

It is possible to do this 3 km, 5 km and 10 km course pushing prams or wheelchairs but please ensure you review the route first as there are a couple of steep inclines.

The Little Heroes 1k is around the Domain (very easy and flat). Prams are very welcome.

How do I raise more money for research into neuroblastoma?

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.
