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. Our new 21.1k incorporates 4 laps of the 5k course (plus an additional 1.1km certified loop).

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.

*With work being done in The Domain over the next several months, our courses are changing. Races will now be starting and finishing at the Fleet Steps. Updated maps will be available soon.

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.

Will Run2Cure Domain be COVID-19 safe?

We worked 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 our virtual option, Run2Cure Local. 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 month of September. To find out more 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 2022 plus a free entry into our virtual event, Run2Cure Local, being held throughout the month of September.

Can I still run the same distances in Run2Cure Local as I would in the Domain?

You can still choose to run, walk or jog from the same distances as our annual fun run in the Domain (1k, 3k, 5k, 10k or Half Marathon), HOWEVER you get to choose anytime between 1 September through 30 September, anywhere you are in the world.

Registration Information

Are there any terms and conditions for registering?

Yes, you can read and agree to our waiver here.

If collecting your race bib in person, you will be able to do so from the CBD during the week prior to the event. Location and hours TBD.

I would like to transfer my registration from Run2Cure DOMAIN to Run2Cure LOCAL - can I get a refund for the difference in ticketing price?

* a free transfer entry to our virtual event Run2Cure Local 2021.

Please email us at info@nb.org.au to arrange.




What if I want a refund for Run2Cure at the Domain?

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

We are able to offer a free entry into Run2Cure Local if you would wish. Please contact info@nb.org.au to arrange.

*We do offer a full refund for medical reasons and ask you to supply your medical certificate when you contact us.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

All children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult in the actual runs : 1km, 3km, 5km and 10km. The exceptions are if the child is taking part in the 3km or 5km as part of a school team (there should still be 2 to 3 accompanying adults for the team) or is taking part in the 1k Dash where the parents can monitor their children from the sidelines if preferred.

Fundraising

What if I don't want to accept fundraising prizes?

We offer prizes in recognition of the work involved with fundraising however we understand that some of our generous supporters would prefer not to receive these prizes.
