City Mile Dash, created by Cancer Council NSW in 2011, is a lunchtime corporate speed race, helping raise money for a fantastic cause and settle some office rivalries. One in two Australian men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. However, 30% percent of cancers are preventable through maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The City Mile dash is a great opportunity to run alongside the beautiful Sydney Harbour. The 1.6km course travels through the picturesque Barangaroo Reserve. The Cancer Council is challenging all men and women to run, jog, sprint, wobble, or dash to the finish line for all those affected.
