2020 Canberra Times Marathon Festival (August)
Date in August to be advised
From $45 per adult
All participants running on behalf of DVCS are able to access a 10% discount by entering this code: DVCS-CTMF-10
When you have completed your registration you will be asked if you'd like to fundraise for a charity. Please select yes. A list will be populated, scroll towards the bottom and you'll see DVCS. Select DVCS and follow the prompts.
Please register directly via the Canberra Times Marathon Festival website: Australian Running Festival Registration
You will be asked if you want to run as part of a team, please answer no. You will run as an individual.
All DVCS runners and fundraisers have access to the exclusive DVCS marquee found near the finish line. Our marquee will include chairs, blankets, water, fruit and lollipops for when you have completed the race. We are also happy to mind your gear while you race (please note we are not able to mind children or pets).
Fundraisers who reach a minimum target of $300 will also receive a complimentary DVCS Running Singlet, available on the day. All runners also receive an invitation to the DVCS Supporter Drinks in November 2020. We have reduced the minimum target from $500 by way of acknowledging the financial and emotinal cost the recent bush fires have had on our community.
This year we hope to put together a Kids Mile team! Aimed at primary school aged children, this is the perfect event to get your child involved in fitness and activity, as well as community spirit and support. Children running as an individual only need to raise $50 to qualify for a DVCS running singlet and access to the DVCS tent. If a parent or guardian is running in any other event and achieves the minimum fundraising target, the child does not need to do their own fundraising and will also receive a complimetnary DVCS running singlet.
The highest adult fundraiser will receive two complimentary tickets to the DVCS Gala Ball on Saturday 16 May 2020.
There might even be some encouraging DVCS supporters on the track to help keep you motivated (for the Kids Mile, 5km and 10km races only).
All DVCS runners are invited to be part of our exclusive DVCS Runners Closed Facebook group to keep each other motivated and share training tips!
All the money raised by our runners will be used to support our payment of emergency accommodation and security upgrades for those subjected to violence in the ACT community.

The Ultimate Home Scavenger Hunt
Following the success of our Ultimate Home Scavenger Hunt during the initial restrictions because of Covid-19, we are pleased to bring back the Ultimate Home Scavenger Hunt, July School Holidays.
It's a bit different this time. The first family to send in photos of all 50 items will win a $100 pre-paid VISA Card.
How will this work (CHANGED FORMAT TO LAST ROUNDS):
1. Register and pay for your registration;
2. We will email you a list of 50 items to collect at 9.30am on Monday 6 July 2020.
3. Once you have collected your 50 items, take photos for submission;
4. You have a limit of 10 photos, so you will need to group items together;
5. If you don't have an item, you are welcome to contact family and friends to see if they can send you a photo;
6. You have two ways of submitting your photos: email your photos to email@example.com or upload your photos to the closed Facebook group "Ultimate Home Scavenger Hunt" (see note below) ;
7. The first family to submit all 50 items, within 10 photos is the winner.
Please note this is a fun based activity for families to do together while practicing social distancing, hand hygiene and getting out and about, while also fundraising for DVCS.
If you upload your photos to the closed Facebook group "Ultimate Home Scavenger Hunt" we assume you are happy for us to share those publically on the DVCS Facebook page.
$15 per family
