10 years NCT-RUNning against cancer

Set your sign against cancer with the virtual NCT run and celebrate the anniversary year with us. Our goal is 80,000km in three days. Together we can do it. Register now free of charge and be there when kilometres and donations are collected for the NCT Heidelberg between 2 and 4 July.

Our goal

Our goal for the anniversary year is 80,000 kilometres. Each of these kilometres run will be rewarded by our sponsors with 0.25 euros. Collect kilometres for a good cause over three days and become part of the NCT Run 2021. Our fundraising target can be increased even further through your activities: start your personal fundraising campaign for the benefit of the NCT Run on our homepage or directly here.

Since 2012, tens of thousands of people have been lacing up their running shoes for the National Centre for Tumour Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg and setting out on the run. Our charity run even moves the whole world. Last year, people ran on all 7 continents to support our work at the NCT Heidelberg. We use the donations to support our innovative cancer research projects.

How does it run?

The virtual NCT run can be run anywhere. Free registration is a requirement for your participation. You will then receive login information for your personal NCT Run area at www.tappa.de/nct-lauf. Here you can set up a team, invite other participants to join your team, view leaderboards and much more.

Do you want to automatically record the distance you have covered with your smartphone or fitness tracker? Download the app Tappa Pro from the App Store or Google Play. The app uses data from Apple Health/Google Fit. As long as you have your smartphone with you when you run. Or use a device from Fitbit, Polar or Garmin: the connection with your personal Tappa profile enables the automatic transfer of your run distance

You also use your personal login data to log in.

Alone. Together!

We will give the starting signal for the virtual NCT run on our social media channels on 2 July 2021 at 6 pm. You can run up to and including Sunday, 4 July.

Send us a message, a photo or a video of your personal running session. Share your personal virtual NCT run on social media and tag the NCT Heidelberg and use the hashtags #nctlauf and #nctrun. You may be running alone, but we are still standing together! Also follow us on Instagram and be there live at the virtual run. NCT-RUNning against cancer. Alone. Together!
