Variety is running Round The Bays 2024! 

Join Team Variety in Auckland at Round The Bays on 3rd March 2024 and celebrate our Kiwi kids on National Children's Day. 

Whether walking, jogging or running, you can complete the scenic 8.4km course along Waitematā Harbour for a cause. Every dollar raised will go towards providing children in our poorest communities with the tools to succeed. 

 To tempt you further, everyone who signs up with Team Variety will be invited to 'park up' at our hospitality tent (post run) for delicious food and refreshments, kindly supported by our generous corporate partner ParkMate
