Three years ago, Ron Rutland and James Owens travelled across 23 countries from London to Tokyo, as they took part in the Race to RWC 2019, raising €123,696 for ChildFund Rugby. This amazing feat supported thousands of children and young people across Asia to learn valuable life skills, grow as leaders, and become role models in their communities.
In 2022, Ron teamed up with Adam Nunn and together they cycled their way from Japan to New Zealand, in celebration of Rugby World Cup 2021 and in support of ChildFund Rugby.
On October 8th 2022, the duo arrived to Eden Park, just in time to deliver the opening game’s whistle to referee Maggie Cogger-Orr to officially kick-off Rugby World Cup 2021.
Spanning 209 days, 11 nations, and over 16,500km, the Race to Rugby World Cup 2021 successfully raised more than 15,000 USD for ChildFund Rugby, the tournament’s Principal Charity. The journey was supported by World Rugby, DHL, and the global rugby family who cheered for them all the way to the finish line.
