Welcome to the inaugural Rory Warrior Games.
So the Olympic Games have been postponed. Where will you get your games fix now?
We invite you to channel your inner warrior, and test your mental and physical strength, in the Rory Warrior Games of 2020.
We are going to take you back on a journey in time. Long before covid-19, to ancient days where elite warriors tested themselves. It’s time to put those chalices down, and stop eating like you’re at an ancient feast, and get back on your feet.
We have developed three games for you to participate in. Two are solo challenges which will require some problem solving and leg power, and our third game is a battle of warriors. Pit yourself against our running warriors and see if you can come out victorious in a battle of kms. There are 9 running warriors for your to take on. Select one and run them down, or attempt to beat all 9.
For each game you can earn a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal depending on how well you do.
Participate in all three games, or select one and focus your energy on it. It’s up to you.
- Sudoku Mastery
- Rory’s Suburban Sleuth (child friendly)
- Fight! Battle of the warriors
Every runner will receive our Rory’s Warrior Medal. The medal has a spot for your Gold, Silver or Bronze medal depending on how well you performed in our games.
When you sign up you will be given access to download our Rory’s Warrior Games file with the game details in them, as well as the details on our running warriors. Read it carefully before making your selection.
If you’re participating in Game 3 – Fight! please state your intentions in our facebook group so our running warriors know who they are fighting against.
Our Supporting Charity
This event is supporting Rory’s Warriors. Rory’s Warriors raises awareness for Paediatric Brain Cancer and raises money for brain cancer research through the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation.
In 2018 – aged 4 – Rory was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of brain and spinal cord cancer. He underwent 2 major brain and spinal surgeries and 68 continuous weeks of chemotherapy. Treatment ended in October 2019 with some reduction of his multiple tumors.
His condition is incurable and Rory will have it for life.
The cancer affects his motor control – both gross and fine, his energy levels and his ability to learn.
Fortunately at the moment he is coping well and able to relatively enjoy his childhood – however his condition may change at any moment and he and his family live with this uncertainty.
His family created the Foundation immediately following this – determined that no other family should have to go through a similar experience. They have been on a mission to end brain cancer ever since. Brain Cancer kills more children than any other disease with only 1 in 5 children surviving 5 years post-diagnosis and only 50% able to be helped with current treatment options. The RCDF funds projects that improved treatment options and ultimately survival rates for kids facing brain cancer.
