Connor’s Run 2021

Community Event

12 Sep 2021 Annual Event

Connor’s Run is the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation’s biggest event of the year, all about finding your awesomeness, celebrating courage and Connor, and this year is double the fun. The much-loved Connor’s Run one day event will be returning to Melbourne on Sunday 12 September, and as ‘Your Way Any Day’ for the whole month of September, anywhere in the world.

The Connor’s Run event spans 18.8 kilometre from Hampton Beach to Alexandra Gardens – the same track Connor once ran in preparation for a rowing season and coincidentally, the length of his life. The second run length is 9.6 kilometres, from Catani Gardens St Kilda to Alexandra Gardens, representing Connor’s birthday, 9 June.

Your Way Any Day means you can join in the fun any day in September by choosing your own ‘I Will’. Create your own vibe, run, walk, roll, hop, skip, jump or dance as much as you want, do it once, do it every day – anything goes.

Over 4,000 participants from all around the world helped make 2020 the biggest Connor’s Run ever, raising over $1.3 million, bringing the eight-year total to more than $5.7 million raised for paediatric brain cancer research, care and development projects.

Join in this September to help change the odds for kids facing brain cancer: the number one cancer killer of young people.
