Why the white and pink T-shirts?

The pink T-shirts are reserved for people affected by breast cancer, called survivors. It gives you access to the exclusive survivor zone, where you will be cherished. Other participants are wearing a white T-shirt. If you are a survivor, but prefer not to wear a pink T-shirt, then you can easily choose a white one.

Children under 10 do not have a T-shirt, unless they register for free for the Race for the Kids (6 – 10 years). A special Kids’ T-shirt will be waiting for them at the Kids’ Corner.

Team Captains automatically receive a blue T-shirt.

Can my dog run or walk with us?

Of course! Dogs are welcome to walk or run alongside you. We will provide an area with water bowls to spoil your four-legged friend.

Is the course wheelchair accessible?

The course is accessible for everyone, so definitely for people in a wheelchair.

Does the Race for the Cure have time registration and bibs?

The Race for the Cure is not a running competition, but a sportive event that raises awareness for breast cancer. That is why we consciously choose not to pin bibs and not to register your running time. The goal of the Race for the Cure is to raise more breast (cancer) awareness, to have fun and to move alongside people who are there to support you. It does not matter how long it takes you to complete the course. Crossing the finish line is all the victory we need.
