In what will be the 20th edition, this year's Bathurst Relay for Life will see fundraisers walk through the night to raise money for cancer this weekend.
Held on Watson Oval at All Saints Campus, Relay for Life raises money for cancer research, the support of patients and programs to help prevent cancer.
Cancer Council Western NSW community relations coordinator Katherine Bodiczky said numbers are lower than last year, but expects the numbers to pick up on the day.
"We're a bit lower than last year, but Bathurst being a last minute community, we're expecting more to sign up on the day," he said.
"We had over 500 registered last year, but we did get 60 sign up on the day."
There are currently 344 participants registered, including 34 survivors and carers.
There are also 36 teams registered, but not all participants will belong to a team.
The target goal for 2019 is to raise $80,000 but only $22,341.91 had been raised as of Monday morning.
Ms Bodiczky is hopeful that the event will raise at least more than $50,000.
"It's been really amazing how the community has got behind this event and shown the support for the cause," she said.
Relay for Life will start at midday on Saturday, March 16, and will run to 9am on Sunday, March 17.
It's not too late to register, with registrations still being accepted on www.cancercouncil.org.au.
Otherwise, registrations can be taken on the day.
An estimated $65,000 was raised during last year's event, which was also held at the All Saints Campus.
