Thank you for joining the fight against cancer.

Join us in our efforts to help save lives by forming teams with your family or friends to walk or run on the Relay track!

1The Individual Normal and Team Normal categories are for those who do not wish to compete in the 100KM challenge but would still like to be involved in the relay. The Normal category allows for more freedom and flexibility for participants, who are free to walk at their own pace and time without reaching the 100KM goal.
PURPOSE OF THE 100KM CHALLENGE
The fight against cancer is a long and arduous battle. The 100KM Challenge seeks to inspire supporters and members of the public to make a personal pledge to journey alongside those whose battle still continues. The 100KM Challenge offers all participants the opportunity to declare their fight against cancer and to test their mental fortitude by participating in a non-competitive walk/run around the relay track.
HOW THE 100KM CHALLENGE WORKS
The 100KM Challenge is first and foremost a time challenge where at least one member of each team is required to walk or run on the track during a non-stop relay for 15 hours (6pm – 9am).
Besides aiming to complete the 100KM, the true focus and challenge of this relay is to show and understand that the fight against cancer never sleeps. This 100KM Challenge is symbolic in the way participants walk through the night, showing their grit and endurance. Until the cure for cancer is found, we want to keep showing our support and journey alongside the cancer warriors.
– Just as how cancer survivors don’t stop because they’re tired, neither do we.
