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.
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
- improving core strength
- proper breathing techniques
- 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.
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)

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.
