It is with tremendous disappointment that we advise that Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids will not proceed on August 29, 2021.

The health and safety of our entrants, staff, volunteers and the Victorian community must take priority.  

With the current uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges of conducting a large, mass-participation event in the current environment, the event organising committee has made the very difficult decision to reschedule.

The event will return to its traditional position in the Melbourne running calendar in early 2022, with a firm commitment to continue to raise much needed funds for the 2022 Good Friday Appeal.

Entrants who have registered for the 2021 will receive an email outlining the following options
