Pork Pie Charity Run 2021

Event date: 
26 March 2021 - 1st April 2021


The Pork Pie Charity Run is BACK for 2021! After raising KidsCan over an astounding $291,000 through 2018 & 2019, 60 teams will take on the challenge to drive their MINI's the length of New Zealand in the seventh running of this quintessentially Kiwi event. In homage to the beloved Kiwi classic movie 'Goodbye Pork Pie', the 60 teams will be starting in Paihia on Friday 26th March 2021, and after 6 days and 7 nights of adventure we will see this courageous (and possibly a bit crazy) crew arrive in Invercargill on Wednesday 31st March.

Check out the teams here.

On their journey teams will pass through our biggest cities and friendliest rural towns and engage with the community. Competition for top spot on the fundraising leader board is fierce but it’s all in the name of fun and making as big a difference as possible. Support your favourite team now!

This truly epic journey is a test of willpower, stamina, and fundraising enthusiasm like no other!
