About RBC Race for the Kids
RBC Race for the Kids is an exciting series of family fun runs supporting children and youth causes in Australia, Barbados, Canada, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Luxembourg, Trinidad and Tobago, United Kingdom, United States and now, for the third time and in person, Jersey. The Jersey Race takes place as part of the Super League Triathlon weekend, in which RBC is the Community Partner.
COVID-19 meant the 2020 series went virtual for the first time ever. With restrictions in place, we welcomed 36 youth charities in 16 countries to the RBC Global Virtual Race campaign including all 17 existing Race events and 17 net new charities, with nearly 34,000 participants raising over $8.8 million dollars.
This year we were excited to return with an in person event and to support our new charity partner Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. We are thrilled to confirm that over 750 of you, your family and friends (and dogs) walked, wheeled and ran the 2.5K or 5K course and had a fantastic time raising money for Durrell’s Future Conservationists Programme, continuing our support of Jersey’s youth by helping to improve mental health and wellbeing. The race itself followed the course the world’s top professional triathletes competed on as part of the Super League Triathlon weekend, beginning at Waterfront Gardens and heading around the picturesque Elizabeth Marina.
2021 was our biggest and best race yet. Watch the fantastic video on this page or you can find the photos from the event in the Gallery
We are still accepting donations to Durrell for the 2021 event. For more information visit our JustGiving page here.
We look forward to seeing you at the start line in 2022!
