Auckland Round the Bays

Support Kiwi kids through Variety - the Children's Charity in the 2023 Auckland Round the Bays fun run.

Auckland Round the Bays - Sunday 5 March 2023

Round the Bays
National Children’s Day
Sunday 5th March 2023

Join us for New Zealand’s largest fun run, along Auckland’s waterfront. Get your daily dose of Vitamin-Sea and take in the views of the Waitemata Harbour by either walking, jogging or running the 8.4km route.

Round the Bays is a family friendly event, for all levels of fitness.

Enjoy on-course entertainment and the after-party atmosphere. By joining Team Variety, you will make a positive difference to Kiwi kids experiencing poverty with your fundraising efforts.

Celebrate our tamariki and rangatahi, while raising funds to support Kiwi kids who are experiencing poverty and missing out on the basic essentials and opportunities.


Join Team Variety and create your own Round the Bays fundraising page, set your target, then let all your friends, family and colleagues know the difference their donations will make to the 1 in 5 Kiwi Kids who are falling behind because they don’t have access to the basic essentials. We will support you with your fundraising every step of the way.

There are great prizes to be won - when individuals raise:

  • $750, you’ll go into the draw to win one of four pairs of ASICS trainers
  • $1,500, we will refund your Round the Bays entry fee

Your support will ensure that children and young people can receive the essentials they need to go to school, stay healthy and take part in their community. The more you raise, the more children you can help.

Don’t forget to register for the Round the Bays.
