Help us fight the good fight against blood cancer
Spartan Race is tough, but facing the difficult and often scary realities of a blood cancer diagnosis is undoubtedly one of life’s toughest challenges.
With great courage, comes great responsibility, so we hope you’ll choose to fight the good fight by joining Team Beat Blood Cancer and fundraising in support of everyone living with blood cancer.

About Leukaemia Foundation
Spartans are unwaveringly committed and so are we.
So much so, that we’ve set a bold goal of Zero Lives Lost to Blood Cancer by 2035, and our recent State of the Nation: Blood Cancer in Australia report tells us that we are on the path towards achieving it. Our commitment to the care and cure of patients and families living with blood cancer and related disorders is at the heart of everything we do.
So when you join Team Beat Blood Cancer, you’re bravely committing to helping us support those touched by blood cancer in several important ways:
We provide free home-away-from-home accommodation near hospital for 750 rural and regional families each year who need to urgently relocate for treatment.
Transport services for a safe journey
We support people living with blood cancer by providing transport services to and from hospital, ensuring they can get to treatment safely when their immunity is compromised.
Specialised support at every stage
We offer people living with blood cancer specialised practical, emotional and financial support from diagnosis through to treatment and beyond.
Research that improves & saves lives
We are committed to funding a range of life-saving research initiatives and clinical trials that will lead to faster diagnosis, better treatments and one day...a cure.

Is it an actual race?
Up to you. Run at whatever pace you like and push yourself. Your race is timed, but the open wave is all about conquering the obstacles with your mates and getting across the finish line.

Absolutely. We have people in their 70's running the Sprint. If you exercise at least 3 times a week, you're more than ready. There are training videos and a training guide on the Spartan website to help you.
