Event FAQs

When is Run2Cure Sydney?

Our 11th annual Run2Cure Sydney, to be held in The Domain, is scheduled for Sunday 7th April 2024.

I'm having difficulty registering, or with my registration, who can I contact?

Please contact us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to assist!

Do I need to enter a discount code for early registration pricing?

No. All launch, early bird, standard and last minute prices are already built into the ticket pricing. You do not need to enter any sort of discount code. Last day to take advantage of any sort of discounted pricing is 3:00pm on 6th April.

After this time, any registrations will need to be taken in The Domain on event morning. We advise you to register as early as possible to avoid last minute prices and queuing on the day at the registration desk.

Can I participate in Run2Cure virtually?

Yes, you can! If you are unable to be with us in person in Sydney on Sunday 7th April, you can still register and participate virtually. If interested, please drop us a query at [email protected],au and we can help you out. You will be provided with a discount code for 75% off the registration fee for the distance of your choice and even still have the option to have your bib posted to you ($8 per bib/postage).

Send us a photo of your run and we'll send you a medal upon completion!

Virtual participants are still eligible to receive thank you reward prizes for your fundraising efforts too. (Participants will be responsible for the cost of shipping and handling to mail out any earned prizes as you won't be able to collect in person.)

If at all possible, please register in advance of event day to avoid any queuing and last minute confusion that morning.

We will be able to take registrations on the day, but please aim to arrive at least 1 hour prior to your event start time to account for queues. Stop at the registration desk for registration and bib collection.

I can no longer participate; may I request a refund for my Run2Cure event?

We are unable to offer refunds or partial refunds for Run2Cure if you are no longer able to participate.

*We do offer a full refund for medical reasons and ask you to supply your medical certificate when you contact us. As you can imagine, as a small charity the cost of organising Run2Cure is significant and most expenditure is paid well in advance of an event taking place.

- Run2Cure Sydney 2024 - Medical certificates must be submitted by 24th March 2024 for you to be eligible for a refund. Please contact [email protected] to arrange.

Fundraising FAQs

How do I fundraise?

When you register for the fun run you will have the option to set up a fundraising page by Funraisin. You will then be able to share this page with all your friends and family.

If you get stuck you can always email us at [email protected]

There are some great rewards for fundraising as well the highest fundraisers.

Profits from the event will go towards leading research programs into neuroblastoma.

Do I have to fundraise?

You do not have to fundraise – however it makes a huge difference to what funds we raise on the day and the amount we can then invest into leading research. Funds raised from event tickets mainly cover the cost of putting on the event, so participant fundraising allows us to make a bigger difference in the lives of those affected by neuroblastoma.

When you finish registering and buying your tickets you will have the option to set up a fundraising page by Funraisin. Please email us at [email protected] if you have any queries.

We would appreciate your support in helping to raise funds for neuroblastoma and there are some great fundraising rewards for fundraising milestone amounts.

Collecting/opting out of your fundraising rewards

We offer rewards in recognition of the work involved with fundraising. All fundraising rewards must be collected in person on the day of your event.

However, we understand that some of our generous supporters would prefer not to receive these rewards. If you are not interested in your prizes, simply don't collect, and they will be donated back to our charity to be used for future events.

If you do miss out on collecting your reward prizes on the day, and would like to receive them, email us at [email protected] to arrange for them to be mailed out. You will be responsible for shipping and handling fees.

Prams are welcome at our Run2Cure events in both Sydney and Melbourne (with the exception of the Half Marathon distance in The Domain - Sydney).
