The biennial fundraiser for the Cancer Council is on in Forbes this year and organisers are urging Forbes people to rally their teams and register for the event.

The Cancer Council’s Ricky Puata said the event would return to South Circle and would include a lot of family fun.

“We’re going to have a movie marathon overnight, and lots of activities for the kids as well as lots of great food,” he said.

With the date set for the first weekend in November, this year’s theme will be Melbourne Cup so get your horse racing costumes ready!

The relay will start at 2.45pm Saturday – the time has been pushed back a little –  beginning as always with an opening lap to celebrate and support cancer survivors and their carers.

The candlelight ceremony has been scheduled for 7:45pm and walkers will relay through the night before the closing ceremony at 9am.
