Help us run 10,000 laps of Rugby and Malvern parks and raise $100,000 for the Child Cancer Foundation.  


The Long Run is back on Friday 19 January 2024, when we come together again to raise much-needed funds for the Child Cancer Foundation.


Last year we ran just over 5000 laps and raised more than $50,000 – this year we’re doubling our goals. Together with our community, our players, our staff and our members, we are aiming to run 10,000 laps of Rugby and Malvern parks and raise $100,000 for Kiwis kids diagnosed with cancer and the journey they’re on with their family.


The 10,000 laps will start at 6am, and we’ll keep running and walking until 6pm. There’ll be food trucks, inflatables, kids' activities and an open Crusaders training in the middle of the park. Expect a chance to meet players afterwards, perhaps even run a lap with them.


It’s free to get involved so just turn up on the day or set yourself some goals and help us fundraise by setting up your own fundraising page here.


You can fundraise as an individual, a team with friends, family, teammates or workmates, or sign up for our new Corporate Challenge!


So rally your family, friends and work mates for a huge day out with the Crusaders community.
