Are there different start group waves for my race?

Yes. To reduce congestion at the start line for each event, we have introduced self selected pace groups for the 5k, 10k and Half Marathon. You will find descriptions for the various wave options once you select your distance within registration.

Please self seed within your start group once it's your turn to line up for your event as well. i.e. if you intend to run sub 4:00 min/km pace, move to the front of Wave A. If you intend to walk your event, move toward the back of Wave C.

The 1k, 3k, 5k, 10k and half marathon courses are all timed events.

Please note that the start area of the event is approximately 1km from the nearest parking station at the Domain or drop off area.

Transport can be organised if required with at least 72 hours’ notice – to do this please email info@nb.org.au

Can I bring a pram?

Prams are very welcome in the 1k Little Heroes event – we would love the whole family to participate in the 1k.

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.

Is there a cut-off time for the Half Marathon?

Yes. There is a cut-off time, however, we have made it as generous as feasible to allow for participants of most abilities to join in for our inaugural 21.1km. The cut-off time is 3 1/2 hours. We welcome half marathoners aiming to complete the distance for the first time or those predominately walking.

Will Run2Cure Domain be COVID-19 safe?

We worked with the Australian Government on our COVID safe strategy for Run2Cure Domain.

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, which may mean avoiding large gatherings like Run2Cure Domain.

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 our next scheduled Run2Cure at the Domain event.

Will water be available on the course?

Yes, there will be a water station at the start/finish area and at Mrs Macquarie's Chair on the course.

We will also have an electrolyte drink available at the start/finish area for the participants passing through during the 10k and half marathon.

Registration Information

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

No. All early bird pricing is already built into the ticket pricing. You do not need to enter any sort of discount code.

Are there any terms and conditions for registering?

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

How much are Run2Cure registration fees?

Run2Cure offers very competitive pricing across race distances, plus all profits go directly toward research into neuroblastoma childhood cancer. For specific fees for the distance of your choice, please visit here:

Can I register for R2C Domain on the day?

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 online registrations on the day. You will need to register online before your race and visit our Racing Bib pick up area to collect your bib at least 60 minutes before your race is due to begin.

Can I register my child for an event?

All children 17 & under must be registered by their parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by an adult on the day. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult in all the actual runs: 1km Little Heroes, 3km, 5km and 10km unless they are taking part as a school team. It is suggested school teams do have two to three accompanying adults depending on the size of the team.

Children (aged 6 to 12 years) do not have to be accompanied by an adult for the 1km Junior Dash as parents can monitor their children from the sidelines if preferred.

Children need to be over 12 to take part in the 10km (unless they are toddlers and are in prams).

Can I have my race bib posted to me?

Yes. Upon registration, you can select your race bib to be mailed out to you for a charge of $5 per bib. Bibs will be mailed out in March.

When and where do I collect my race bib?

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.

If necessary, you can also collect your race bib on race day, 1 hour prior to your event start time.

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 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. Medical certificates must be submitted by 20th March 2022 for you to be eligible for a refund. Please contact info@nb.org.au to arrange.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Can I register on behalf of others?

We would prefer adults to register themselves but if this is not possible you can register other adults and of course children – provided you are their parent or legal guardian.

As the person registering other people, please note that you will be also signing and agreeing to the terms and conditions of Run2Cure on their behalf and you should advise them accordingly. All children 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult at the event.

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.

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

Please contact us at info@run2cure.org.au and we'll be happy to assist!

Now in its seventh year, the event is the charity’s largest fundraising event for research into the aggressive childhood cancer, neuroblastoma.

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.
