Round the Bays is now a virtual event, anyone around the country (or overseas) can now sign up! Join the Variety Red Runners and walk, jog, run or roll the 8.4kms from anywhere in New Zealand, tracking your progress via the virtual app.

Will you help give children the tools they need to go back to school? 


Variety – the Children’s Charity is excited to be part of New Zealand’s largest fun run, now a virtual event from 9:15am Sunday 6 March to 9pm Sunday 13 March 2022.

We will also be celebrating te rā o ngā tamariki – Children’s Day on Sunday 6 March! This event is the perfect opportunity to remind everyone how much we care about our children, and what it means to put them first. Whilst we cannot gather together for this, we encourage you all to continue your own celebrations and do your virtual fun-run with the kids!




Remember to select ‘Variety – The Children’s Charity’ when prompted.


Use the code RTB22VARIETY20 and receive a 20% discount (adult entries only). Limited to the first 100 entries.




Every day, 1 in 5 Kiwi kids go without the basics, which has a profound impact on their health, education and well-being. 


Funds raised will support the Variety Back to School Appeal – because poverty shouldn’t keep a child from the classroom.  


Raise $400 and you will be helping one child get the tools they need to go back to school, such as uniform, shoes, stationery, and digital devices.


Every single dollar raised helps to give children and young people in Aotearoa - New Zealand a happier, healthier childhood.
