Fight Cancer Below the Belt

Support ANZUP Cancer Trials Group

Join the Ultimate Community Challenge

Ride, support and help ANZUP fight prostate, testicular, bladder, penile and kidney cancer.

Now in its 3rd year in Melbourne, the Below the Belt Pedalthon has been giving avid cyclists, cycling enthusiasts and pedal-mad families the opportunity to have fun and fundraise for cancer research since 2017.

Ride with us on Sunday 15 March 2020 when we take over Sandown Racecourse in Springvale, Victoria, for the ultimate community team challenge.

The Below the Belt Pedalthon is a cycling event for riders of all ages and abilities, all united in the fight against below the belt cancer.

In teams of 4, you will ride as many laps as possible in either an Open Race (3 hours) or the Family Challenge (1 hour). Riders can be on the track for as many or as few laps as wanted – testing both teamwork and strategy. With track side entertainment and snacks flowing all day, it’s a fun day out for all.

Don’t have a team? We have individual registrations available too.

Can't ride? Why not fundraise for ANZUP as a Sideline Supporter?

Why We Ride

The Pedalthon was founded to promote awareness of these common but ‘less glamorous’ below the belt cancers and provide ANZUP Cancer Trials Group with the critical funds to improve the lives of more than 27,000 people diagnosed in Australia every year.

Every cent raised by the Pedalthon goes directly towards clinical trials research which translates into better diagnoses, treatments and outcomes for our community. This means that all funds raised go straight into the hands of experts committed to treating prostate, bladder, kidney, penile and testicular cancer better.

We need your help to fund more trials. We encourage our riders to set individual fundraising goals of $500 for adults and $100 for children.
