The Cancer Council's Relay for Life will again be held in Katherine starting Saturday afternoon.
The relay will begin at 2pm on Saturday and continue through until noon on Sunday.
Relay For Life is an overnight, community event where teams of 10-15 participate in a relay-style walk or run to raise funds for Cancer Council.
One in every two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, and is the leading cause of death in Australia.
The first Australian Relay for Life had 261 participants. Now over 134,000 people take to the track each year.
An opening ceremony will be held at 5pm.
The event is being run at the YMCA Oval.
