Can you run all the way to Wellington?

By joining our Heart Racer team and fundraising to save lives from heart disease - you CAN!

Thanks to our charity partner Singapore Airlines donating return economy airfares from Canberra to Wellington, you can run until you fly.

The Heart Foundation is delighted to offer the five top Heart Racers fundraisers free flights and entry and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run this international event in June 2018. But first to test the waters, you'll train and compete in the 2017 Canberra Times Fun Run.

All Heart Racers will receive:

*Training advice and free weekly training sessions with YMCA of Canberra Runners Club in the lead up to The Canberra Times Fun Run on 3 September 2017

*Hat, water bottle and running singlet

*Invitation to after race marquee for refreshments and massage

 Top five fundraisers will win:

*Free entry into the 2017 Canberra Times Fun Run

*Free entry to the 2018 Wellington Marathon

*One return economy flight to Wellington thanks to Singapore Airlines

Share in the excitement of running a world-class marathon or half marathon in the knowledge that your support will enable Heart Foundation to fund vital research as well as education and prevention programs for the Canberra community.

The Wellington Marathon 

Established in 1986, the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon has been Wellington's favourite footrace for three decades. 

Based at the famous Westpac Stadium, the fast, flat, scenic route around Wellington's spectacular waterfront creates an occasion for all age and ability.

With a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, 5k and the Kids' Magic Mile, there's something for everyone. More than 5000 runners and walkers can't be wrong.
