DUO BEGINS EPIC CYCLE TO
THE RUGBY WORLD CUP

Ron Rutland of Nottingham Road in KwaZulu-Natal and Adam Nunn from Pretoria embarked on the adventure of a
lifetime on the 16th January - cycling 45 000km, in BIRKENSTOCKS whenever possible, to deliver the official match
whistles to the referees for the opening games of both the women’s Rugby World Cup (RWC) in New Zealand in
October 2022 and the men’s Rugby World Cup in France which kicks off in September 2023.

The 600-day odyssey started at the DHL Stadium in Green Point and will take the rugby-mad duo through 47 countries
across six continents. The goal is to raise $500 000 for ChildFund Rugby the official charity partner of the RWC which
gives young people from disadvantaged communities the opportunity to play, learn and grow.

The first leg was sponsored by BIRKENSTOCK who are supplying the duo with footwear for their epic journey.
“BIRKENSTOCKS offer exactly the type of comfort your feet demand after a long day cycling in cleats,” said Adam. “The
brand shares our spirit of adventure and is all about comfort which is why we approached them to support us. We will
also cycle in our BIRKENSTOCKS whenever possible, to give our feet some fresh air.”

RON RUTLAND

@ron.rutland

South African adventurer Ron Rutland is no stranger to extreme expeditions and adversity. The former rugby player discovered adventure and his ‘true calling’ relatively late in life, but since then has embarked on not one, but three extreme expeditions:

a world-first unsupported solo bicycle journey through the entire continent of Africa, followed by a world-record-breaking hole of golf across the immense, untouched landscapes of Mongolia, and most recently a charity bicycle ride from London to
Tokyo. He will now face his biggest challenge yet, #RacetoRWC.

Liaison for WorldTour Cycling team, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka. 

With a desire to channel his creative side, Adam entered the film and production industry with Fell + Co. During his time at Fell & Co, Adam was presented the opportunity to cycle around the world in the #RacetoRWC campaign.
