Connor's Run is a 9.6km or 18.8km run organised by the Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation to support paediatric brain cancer and beat the number one cancer killer of young Australians.
Connor’s Run follows a 18.8km journey from Hampton Beach to Alexandra Gardens, to honour the life of 18-year-old Connor Dawes. It’s the same track Connor once ran in preparation for his upcoming rowing season and coincidentally, the length of his life.
The second run length is 9.6km, from Catani Gardens St Kilda to Alexandra Gardens, representing Connor’s birthday, 9 June.
With more than 4,000 runners, Connor’s Run is Australia’s largest fundraising event for paediatric brain cancer and is aiming to raise $700,000.
In the last five years, Connor’s Run has raised $2.2 million for paediatric brain cancer.
Join in the event and be part of Australia's largest event for paediatric brain cancer.
