Run@Home with Ross & Harry Byrne


With the 2021 Simon Home Run in doubt, Run@Home with Ross and Harry Byrne is our virtual solution to raise vital funds for the 7,500 men, women and children we support each year across Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare, Meath, Louth, Cavan & Monaghan.

Run@Home is a virtual race between two teams led by team captains, brothers and great competitors, Leinster & Ireland Rugby Players Ross & Harry Byrne.

Team Ross & Team Harry will go head to head from 2nd to 16th August in a race from the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and back, covering the Six Nations host stadiums in Edinburgh, Cardiff, London and Paris along the way.

Run or walk at home while being part of a virtual team of fundraisers and watch your team race across Europe on our digital track with every kilometre you walk or run making a vital difference to your team’s performance.

Encourage your friends & family to buy kilometres to give your team the boost you need to take home the gold!

A Message from Your Captains

“The bit of competition between myself and Harry for this campaign adds to the fun for both us and our team members.”

– Ross Byrne

“We would encourage as many people to sign up as possible. The race lasts for just two weeks which is very doable, and the team format means that participants can run or walk at their own pace without any pressure on them individually.”

– Harry Byrne
