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, 1km Dash 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 1km is around the Domain (very easy and flat). Prams are very welcome.

Will Run2Cure Domain be COVID-19 safe?

We are working with the Australian Government on our COVID safe strategy for Run2Cure Domain. We have made many changes to how our event will run and you can find the details here.

However, no matter what precautions we take - not everyone can or should join us in Sydney this year. As a children’s cancer charity, we want our community to be safe, which means taking advice from your medical advisors,especially if you are vulnerable (link to gov site) which may mean avoiding large gatherings like Run2Cure Domain.

With this in mind, we have created Run2Cure Local. This year, wherever you are, you can take part in Run2Cure! Join in, dress up, have fun and help find better treatments for children facing the children’s cancer neuroblastoma over the weekend of 5 September. Registration includes your own personalised bib and more! To find out more and register, visit our Run2Cure Local area.

What happens if Run2Cure Domain is cancelled?

Should the event not be able to proceed for any reason, every participant will receive: a free transferable entry into Run2Cure at the Domain next year and a free entry into our first ever virtual event, Run2Cure Local this year.

Please email us at info@run2cure.org.au if you have any queries.

We would appreciate your support in helping to raise funds for neuroblastoma and there are some fantastic prizes for fundraising amounts, starting at just $50.

How do I raise more money for research into neuroblastoma?

When you register for a Run2Cure event you will automatically be provided a fundraising page by Go Fundraise. 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 info@run2cure.org.au

There are some great prizes for fundraising and profits will go towards leading research programs into neuroblastoma.
