Why is connor's run a bit different this year?
As you know, the world has been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and changed the way we congregate and move around for the time being. We cannot be sure that in September we will be able to run as a group, so we have planned for a different kind of run right from the outset. If circumstances change, we will adapt as best we can, but for now we must go it alone! We ask that you do your Connor's Run safely and follow your local government guidelines.
what does connor's run your way look like?
Connor’s Run Your Way is the opportunity for you to support the RCD Foundation in your own way. There is no limit to the possibilities - you can run, walk, hop, skip, or jump your own distance all throughout the month of September. Do it once, or do it everyday. Do it Your Way!
Why is Connor’s Run happening all throughout September rather than on one day like previous years?
As you know, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we congregate and move around for the time being. The RCD Foundation has a responsibility to support these changes by not setting a single day for people to participate in the Run to ensure our participants are not congregating or moving together. So let’s go it alone!
when can i register?
Registrations open on 23rd April, 2020. This year, we have no limit to the number of people who register, but we highly recommend you register as soon as possible to receive your tee by September. Everyone who has registered prior to the beginning of August should receive their tee by the first week of September. Everyone else will receive theirs during the month of September.
how much does connor's run your way cost?
This year we again have early bird pricing. Tickets purchased by 9th June cost $50 for adults (aged 19+) and $30 for Youth (aged 18 and under). After 9 June ticket prices are $55 for adults and $35 for Youth. The ticket prices does include a limited edition Connor’s Run Tee. Postage and handling for the Tee is $10 for a single registration and $15 for a group of up to six people.
Who can participate?
Anyone can participate! Wherever you are in the world and in any way you choose. And this year you have the whole month of September to do it. Even better, for the first time, your pets can join in.
How do I get my Tee this year?
Your Tee will be posted to you in late August. We will ask for your postal address when you register. Due to Covid-19 there are shipping delays, but we're working hard with our supplier to deliver your tee as safely and as quickly as possible. There will be no rego pick up this year as in past years. Next year we expect to return to our normal rego pick up.
Will I definitely get a Tee?
We only have a limited number of Tees, so we highly recommend you register as soon as possible to secure yours. If you register by the beginning of August we're confident you will receive your tee by the first week of September. If you register after the beginning of August you will get your Tee during the month of September.
can i change my ADDRESS OR tee size?
You are able to change your address or the size you ordered up until 14th August. To reduce waste, we order based on what you have chosen. Connor's Run tees are limited edition and we order and print just enough for the registration batch.

If you can't find that email, use the create account feature on the login page. If you were registered by someone else and they didn't use your email, you will need to ask them to login in to their page to help you edit your registration or fundraising information.
