We are running for the kids!

Participants of the Run For Kids running over the Bolte Bridge

Whether you run, walk or roll - come join us on Sunday 19 March for the 2023 Herald Sun / Transurban Run For The Kids and help raise money for the ​​​​​​​Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal.

We’ve been a proud partner of this iconic Melbourne event since it commenced in 2006, and each year we welcome the opportunity to open up our road and give people the unique experience of running or walking on CityLink.

With the generous support of the community, we have helped raise over $20 million for the Royal Children’s Hospital, which holds a special place in the hearts of Victorians.

What’s new this year?

At 4.6km, we’ve made the short course a little bit shorter but still including our photogenic Bolte Bridge. For the more athletic among us, the classic 14.5km long course over the bridge and through the Domain Tunnel is back again.

Remember you don’t even need to run -  you can come along with family and friends for a scenic walk or volunteer on the day to help make a difference.

Kids’ registration is 50% off

Run For The Kids is a family-friendly event – the more kids, the better! That’s why kids aged between four years and 17 years will receive a 50% discount off the standard adult registration price, making it easier for families to take part together. Registration for children under the age of four is free.
