Drinks and light refreshments (nut bars, fruit, sandwiches, ..) throughout the day

Is my entry fee a charity donation?

OUTRUN CANCER is a not for profit organisation but it is not yet registered as charity. Therefore, the entry fee is not a charity donation. Furthermore, the fee is not tax deductible as per ATO guidelines.
The entry fee is used to cover the material costs and is invested back into OUTRUN CANCER to continue to develop and expand the event.

Is my entry fee refundable or transferrable?

The entry fees are not normally refundable or transferrable as per out T&C. Having said so, we will try our best to accommodate requests, so get in touch.

What time do I need to register on the day?

Anytime from 12:30 before your turn on the treadmill.
You must sign the insurance waiver and check-in sheet at the gym reception. Just look for your team’s registration sheet and autograph it!

How long in advance do I need to be at the gym before my turn on the treadmill?

Totally up to you to agree with your team captain.
We suggest you are ready to run at least 15 minutes before your scheduled turn, times are normally faster than expected.
You are welcome and encouraged to stay and cheer for your team mates for as long as you want. After all this is a team effort!

Where can I leave my bag and belonging

Glad you ask because this is really important. You can use the gym’s changing room and lockers. Yes you can and you should! That avoids having bags laying on the floor like a campground.
If you have any question on how to operate the lockers in the changing room, please ask reception or your team captain.

Can I use the gym equipment for warm up and additional workout?

Absolutely! And we encourage you to do so.
Depending on the gym, the Personal Trainers may organise “circuits”, completing them will give you a time bonus too!

What do I need to bring?

A water bottle. It is going to be hot and you will sweat. Drinks & juices will be provided but you want to make sure you keep re-hydrated using the gym’s bubblers.
And you need to bring running shoes of course! Although barefoot running is also accepted.

FUNDRAISING FOR A WORTHY CAUSE

The OUTRUN CANCER Corporate Treadmill Marathon is a charity event to fundraise for a worthy cause: the fight against cancer.
Your registration donations and all the additional fundraising you do, go towards the cancer prevention programs OUTRUN CANCER supports.
For this event, we have partnered up with Cancer Council NSW to fund a 4 years research on the data Cancer Council has collected through the CLEAR study. The aim is further analyse the connection between diet, physical activity, b.m.i. and cancer in the New South Wales community.

Every donation is fundamental. Without your generous donations we will not be able to fund these important projects. And rest assured we will keep you up to date with the outcomes of these projects and how they have helped taking a step forward in the race against cancer.

GETTING OTHERS BEHIND THE CAUSE

“The most successful givers aren’t doing it because they’re being told to. They do it because doing it is fun. It gives them joy.”

We couldn’t agree more with this quote from Seth Godin. People are happy to support a genuine and worthy cause that in a way or another has touched them or will touch them in the near future.

You will be surprised to see the number of people that will positively respond to a call out for support or sponsorship. Although we are working to fund specific projects that require a financial contributions, the aim is to get more people involved and engaged with the cause. Spread awareness about cancer and the many ways to dramatically reduce our risks.

So spread the word with friends and colleagues about what you are doing. It will give them and you joy.

CORPORATE DOLLAR MATCHING

If your corporate operates a dollar matching scheme for charitable donations, all of the sudden the donations you receive are worth double! How great is that!

If you are ensure whether your employer does dollar matching .. ask around! If they do, it would be great to get them involved! You can direct any question your employee may have to us

DONATIONS RECEIPTS

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

All your sponsors will receive a receipts within two weeks from the end of the event and their donation will appear on your fundraising totals immediately.


RESULTS

SHELLEY ST 2016 – Still undefeated as the highest fundraising location in every Treadmill Marathon!

It’s awesome to see 5 gyms now participating in the Corporate Treadmill Marathon.  The new gyms are bringing fresh energy with new companies and ideas, but Shelley Street continues to be the heart of the event.  Our strong connection with CBA, Macquarie and American Express ensured we again achieved more fundraising than any other location, and new teams from Lend Lease, GBST and ANZ also represented strongly.  The staff at Goodlife gym are fantastic hosts, with Elle and the team of Personal Trainers providing great support throughout the day.

There was also a high standard of competition, with all teams exceeding their predicted run-times, and three teams running under 3hr marathons.  The fastest team again was ‘AMEX Merchant Services’, with a cracking time of 2h 26mins.  One CBA team were forced to run in fancy dress, because they didn’t raise quite as much money as their rivals.  (‘CBA Treadmill Trotters’ raised $4,000, but were beaten by ‘Catch Us If You CAN’ who raised almost $6,200!) The Cancer Council NSW volunteers were excellent at keeping all teams organised!

The spirit of the event also resonated strongly, with many competitors writing their motivation on a banner – typically that they were running for someone who was undergoing cancer treatment, or has lost their battle with cancer.  There were many touching moments, such as a cancer sufferer participating in a team, and Elle (Goodlife manager) sharing what it meant to her as someone currently undergoing treatment herself.

The event was a great success, with many teams already planning to go bigger and better next year!

Thanks to Luca and the broader OUTRUN CANCER team for all your organisation leading up to this year’s event.  And congrats on breaking $100,000 in overall fundraising!!
