$1,743 donated
Given by 30 generous donors in around 11 months

Roman and I will be running twelve half marathons and a full this year to raise funds for two awesome charities; KidsCan and The SPCA.


Hey everyone and thanks for visiting our page,

Roman and I decided to take on a fitness challenge in 2021 and at the same time try to raise as much as we can for two awesome charities; KidsCan and The SPCA.

The Goal is to run a Half Marathon every month with a Marathon thrown in for good measure in November. The half marathons will be a mix between events and self runs throughout the year. We aim to do the Queenstown Marathon in November and finish the year off by running a half across the Tongaririo Alpine Crossing.

Running Schedule - We completed our first 21km on the 13th of Jan

Jan: Self run 21km in 2:17:40 - Waterfront run St Heliers to Wynyard Quarter and back.

Feb: Tarawera Ultra Trail 21km Half Marathon - Completed! Dion - 1:53:40 Roman - 2:52:49

March: Self Run in 2:10:34 Waterfront run St Heliers to Wynyard Quarter and back.

April: The Dual Motutapu & Rangitoto Island Half Trail Marathon (Postponed to May) Self Run Dion -1:58:22 Roman - 2:03:58 Waterfront run St Heliers to Wynyard Quarter and back.

May: Self Run/Event - Location TBC

July: Self Run/Event - Location TBC

August: Self Run/Event - Location TBC

We would love to get your support to help keep us motivated and raise funds for these two charities! The donations will be split evenly between the two.

Progress Update!!  10 April 2021

Sorry we have been a bit slack updating this page, if you have us on our social media platforms you will see we have been posting/updating after each half marathon.

We just completed 1/2 marathon number 4 this morning. We were supposed to run The Dual on Rangitoto but it was postponed due to high winds and heavy rain today (which made our run today all that more interesting)

So looks like we will be doing The Dual sometime next month once we get confirmation of the updated dates.

Thanks again for all the donations guys we really appreciate it and they are definitely keeping us going especially coming into winter!

Cheers Dion and Roman
