About this program
You don't need to suffer to run the Bridge!
Prepare to enjoy the most beautiful 10km race in Australia.
Take selfies as you cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge, drink in the scenic harbour views and experience the ultimate Sydney Opera House finish line.
Fun, safe, inclusive group training.
Perfect if you are starting out or coming back to running after a break.
No previous experience needed. You don't need to run the whole way in the first week!
Friendly, professional coaches and a supportive group of like-minded teammates who love a post run coffee
We've got you covered for your entire journey. From your first session right to the finish line, we'll be by your side.
Two face-to-face coached group sessions per week plus a daily guide covering the 10 week training period.
All group sessions are led by a supportive, experienced running coach.
Mid-week training typically involves:
- strength and conditioning sessions
- advice on injury prevention
- advice on running gear
- running technique and tips
- improving fitness through interval sessions
Saturday runs typically:
- focus on running form
- build distance very gradually and sustainably
- build the social aspect of the group
- end in great coffee and chats!
Our programs improve the health of participants AND the community. All our programs fundraise for cancer research to secure a healthier future for everyone.
In return for the training and the support of our amazing team, we ask you to raise a minimum of $699 by the end of your program.
We'll support you every step of the way to achieve your fundraising goals. Step out of the crowd and be part of something bigger than running.

I have never been a runner, I never believed I was capable of completing a half marathon especially after a knee injury. Coach Kim made running fun, always encouraging the squad, supporting our individual needs and making the training program effortless... I feel very privileged to have been coached for the last two Can Too programmes and the current half marathon program by Kim. I am aiming for a marathon hopefully soon.

What to expect on race day
We bring all our groups together for a pre-race briefing, warm up with your coach and head off to the start line together.
Hundreds of runners and spectators will cheer “Go Can Too!” to others in orange. the support is incredible.
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 Can Too recovery tent.
Remember: you've done it! You've acheived something amazing for yourself and for those with cancer.

What is my fundraising commitment?
We will provide your coaching and support throughout the 10-week program. In return, your commitment is to raise a minimum of $699.
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.
Is fundraising complusory?
Absolutely. Our vision is transforming lives – through improving health and wellbeing of the community and supporting the research, prevention and control of cancer.
To deliver our vision, Can Too has a dual mission:
Cancer prevention - Professionally coached programs promote healthy lifestyles and aid in reducing the risk of one-third of cancers which are lifestyle-related.
Cancer Research - We are proud to have raised more than $25 million since 2005, funding early career cancer researchers. Further information is available here.

Try these tips to make the most out of your fundraising page:
- Personalise your fundraising page - add your profile photo, a personal message and shots from your weekly training.
- Set the standard for generosity when you make the first donation. Your family and friends will follow your example when deciding how much to donate.
