Become A Half Marathoner

... and help us beat cancer!

About this program

This program is for all runners looking to train in a fun, safe, group environment for the Half Marathon distance whilst fundraising for cancer research.

On the weekend of 19 September 2021 you will achieve your goal by running 21km with your Can Too tribe at the Blackmores Half Marathon.

If you're concerned about your ability, please contact us. We'd love to help you set a suitable goal.

As a registered Australian charity, all our programs fundraise for cancer research — it's an important part of why we do what we do.

This is an ideal event for anyone looking to increase their distance and achieve that Half Marathon distance.

Training format

You'll train twice per week under the guidance of a supportive, experienced running coach.

Mid-week interval training typically covers:

  • how to run more efficiently

  • understanding injury prevention
  • presentations by guest speakers.

Saturday distance runs typically:

  • focus on running form
  • build endurance
  • improve mental focus
  • work on pacing and race strategy.

What to expect on race day

We bring all our groups together for a pre-race briefing, warm up with a coach, toilet stop, and head off to the start line together.

All our runners can access on-course support by your support crew – from start to finish.

Hundreds of runners and spectators will cheer “Go Can Too!” to others in orange. It’s going to be a huge boost in tough times.

As you’re cheered down the home straight to the finish line, smiling for the cameras, you’re going to feel like an Olympian. And you’re going to deserve it.

Within seconds of finishing, it’ll get emotional, probably lots of hugs, as your family and friends celebrate with you at the exclusive Can Too hospitality area.

Remember: you will be a Blackmores Half Marathoner Runner!!! Your achievements are going to inspire others to get involved and give those affected by cancer a better chance to beat it.

Be more than a part of the crowd. Be a part of something bigger than running.

What's a life-changing experience worth?

Bruno Giunta, Sydney Olympic Park

"It was hard at times but I made it. At one point it felt like I wasn't going to finish. But I just kept going and my Coach helped me out and got me to the finish line. Having the structure, the accountability week by week, that training, that feedback from the Coach really mentally and physically prepared me for the Half Marathon. Without the training program I wouldn't have been able to do it. It feels fantastic to achieve my goal."

... common fundraising questions.

Do I have to fundraise?

Yes, you have to fundraise in return for your 14 week coached training program. Don’t let that worry you too much, we’ve been doing this since 2005 so we have plenty of resources available to help you achieve your fundraising goal. Plus, you’ll have a Team Captain and Mentor/s to guide you through. The best approach is to have a plan and to start early.

Where does the money go?

When you fundraise for Can Too Foundation, you're fundraising for Australian cancer research and prevention. We focus on investing in early career cancer researchers across all cancer types. Can Too Foundation funded 11 researchers in 2020 and are funding a further 9 researchers in 2021. As a registered charity, we will always be careful with every single dollar we spend and completely transparent in our reporting..

What if I don't meet my commitment?

Can Too has been teaching people to run and raise funds for cancer research for 16 years. We know that if you put your mind to it and work hard you CAN TOO help fund Australia's most promising cancer research projects. You have until 30 days after your goal race to meet your commitment, and we continue working with you until options are exhausted.

How long do I have to fundraise?

The good news is that you have until 30 days after your program finishes to meet your commitment to cancer research and prevention. You'll have an active fundraising page from the moment you sign up, so our suggestion is sign up early!

What is Bronze level fundraising?

By raising $1350 you will meet your minimum fundraising commitment and become a Fundraising Star.

If you go above and beyond, you could become a Silver Fundraising Star ($1650) or even a Gold Fundraising Star ($1950)
