#TheBigRugbyRun 2021 will take place on May 22nd, organised by the PSA Academies team, with the support of Rugby Players Ireland (RPI), Zurich Ireland and the Z Zurich Foundation, with funds raised going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme run by RPI.
Now in its second year, #TheBigRugbyRun aims to connect the grassroots of the Irish rugby community together following an extremely challenging season for clubs and their members. This year’s event format will once more see each registered team committing to running the 42-kilometer distance of a full marathon – all while carrying a rugby ball! This distance can be completed as a relay, by teams of between 2 to 21 members of all ages. The inaugural Big Rugby Run took place on 9 May 2020 across Ireland, when 117 teams, with more than 1.700 runners, covered just under 6,000kms and raised over €60,000 for Feed The Heroes (www.feedtheheroes.com)
#TheBigRugbyRun concept and brand is owned by Advanced Sporting Potential Limited (registered in Ireland #575120). We work with Charity and Corporate Partners for the fundraising, sponsorship and activation aspects of the campaign.
