Canberra Relay For Life 2021 Relay Your Way


We are very pleased to announce that Relay For Life online registrations are now open! However, due to uncertainty and safety concerns regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we cannot bring Relay back in its traditional, physical format in 2021.

While we can't come together on a large scale, we can still keep the spirit of Relay ignited in our community. Cancer never rests so neither can we! You can celebrate, remember and fight back with Relay Your Way, either as an individual or within a team, together (following government guidelines) and it's free to register!

How It Works

Relay Your Way was introduced due to the sudden impact of COVID-19 and heightened restrictions, right before Canberra Relay For Life 2020 was scheduled to take place in March. We really need your help to make Relay Your Way bigger and better in 2021! Participants can register and participate as individuals or you can still complete Relay within a team. While the official date for Relay For Life is Saturday, 20th March 2021, we are urging participants to get involved in an activity or challenge of your choosing anytime from now until then - Relay any way, your way!

There are many options on how you can Relay Your Way in our local Canberra community, including...

The options are endless, and we encourage you to brainstorm with your team on how you will Relay Your Way!

Join Us

This year, we are planning a Candlelight Ceremony of Hope for Saturday, 20 March 2021, including something special for Survivors & Carers. So, you and your team get to Relay Your Way from the time you register right up until that evening, when we will get together to Celebrate, Fight Back and Remember with the Awards, Candlelight & Closing Ceremonies.
