Become A Trail Runner or Walker

... and help us beat cancer!

About this trail walk or run program

Train with your supportive and friendly Can Too family to tackle the Snowies Trail Run being held at the stunning Lake Crackenback Resort and Spa in the Thredbo Valley, New South Wales. 

Don’t fancy running? No problem – join the walking group!

This program will prepare our runners and walkers to tackle either the Half Marathon or 11km distances. With a 5km race, and even a FREE Kids run at the Snowies event, there really is something for everyone. It’s a perfect destination event for you and your friends and families.    

If you fancy an event further afield or closer to home, train with us and check out the Tarawera Ultra in New Zealand or the Wentworth Falls Trail Run on 12 and 13 February 2022.

Training format

For 14 weeks, you will meet up with like-minded individuals to experience the joy of the trails, while at the same time raising funds to support life-saving cancer research and prevention programs.

Note to walkers: Hiking boots, poles or backpacks aren't mandatory but are recommended if you feel you need them.  You will need a good level of walking fitness. There will be uneven terrain, steps and some narrow sections of trail, so bring a sense of adventure!

Weekday sessions typically covers:

  • Developing your strength and fitness so you will enjoy the trails more!
  • Proper trail running/walking technique and etiquette
  • Injury prevention and safety
  • Trail running/walking gear: what to wear and carry 
  • Hearing from guest speakers

Saturday long walks and runs typically:

  • Runners will gradually build trail running skills and speed
  • Walkers will build agility, fitness and endurance
  • Developing confidence and fitness while exploring a variety of trails. No two tracks are quite the same!  
  • Improving mental focus and wellbeing

Runs will be led by our experienced trail coaches. Walks will be headed by a Can Too walk leader with good local knowledge and experience on the trails.

By raising $950 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 ($1350) or even a Gold Fundraising Star ($2000)

Disconnect and find yourself in the natural beauty at your doorstep

Trail running is different to road running, as no two steps are the same – you have to concentrate on where you’re putting your feet. It’s a form of mindfulness; clearing your mind and focussing on the moment.

That’s why I love trail running, it gives your mind a rest.

I also love trail runs for the peace you find on them, the chance to stop and look at beautiful scenery. It’s an easy way to see amazing parts of Sydney that are right on our doorstep.

Get the skills and experience to become a confident trail walker

I encourage people to embrace the process and appreciate where you are. Trail walking is a totally different environment to what you’d normally be in.

I like taking people to places that they never thought possible in terms of building confidence, ability and fitness, getting them to do things they didn’t think they could.

My favourite part of coaching the Can Too community is getting the group to connect, as running is often done solo. 

I’m inspired by people who aren’t naturals yet with hard work and grit achieve amazing things.

 Ask A Question 

Help fund lifesaving cancer research

... 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 11 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 $950 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 ($1350) or even a Gold Fundraising Star ($2000)
