More than 2000 people participated in the Cancer Council's largest fund-raiser.

All money raised stays in the state.

Relay for Life project manager Ashlee Walker urged people thinking of participating in 2015 to start gathering a team.

A requirement of the event is that someone from each team carries a baton on the track throughout the 24-hour event.

"We had a record number on the track last night,'' Mrs Walker said.
