Round up a team and go in for the long haul at this 24-hour relay to fight cancer

While most fun runs have a finish line at the end of a specified number of kilometres, the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life works differently, only concluding after 24 hours. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you’ll be walking for a day straight – the aim is to have a team member on the track at all times, so the more people you sign up with, the easier it’ll be.

In between laps of King George Park, you can spend your time visiting team campsites, enjoying games, food and live music with fellow participants. While it’s a big commitment, walking under the stars as you honour and support cancer survivors, of whom we all know one, turns out to be a surprisingly moving experience that leads to all sorts of story-sharing and bonding.

Loved relay for life - awesome fun & great community spirit! 

I've been going to Relay for Life for years now and it's such a great event! It's suitable for all ages and includes entertainment, activities such as soccer, cricket and there's even a jumping castle for kids! I had so much fun, will definitely be going back with my friends. 

Had so much fun doing the Relay for Life the past 2 years and we even got a little bit competitive on who can walk the most, a great challenge with so much meaning.  Just do it!
