Race to RWC 2019 -- Two intrepid adventurers deliver the official match whistle by bike

The unique expedition started in February 2019, and since then, Ron Rutland and James Owens have crossed 27 countries in 7 and a half months to deliver the official referee's whistle to the opening match of Rugby World Cup 2019, taking place at Tokyo Stadium on 20 September. On their way from London to Tokyo, Ron and James have covered more than 20,000 km, through every type of climate and across every type of terrain, including the Himalayas. This remarkable quest was in support of raising awareness and donations to give disadvantaged children in Asia the opportunity to take part in sports and learn vital life skills through the rugby-for-development program 'ChildFund Pass It Back.' DHL supported both adventurers during this epic journey from day one, delivering spare parts and care packages, as well as providing security and cross-border advice.

Once in a lifetime opportunity for Match Ball Delivery children

As part of the enduring partnership between DHL and the game of rugby, the logistics provider enabled multiple opportunities across the globe for children to have the chance to deliver an official match ball at one of the matches at the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. 25 countries, including all 20 participating unions, ran promotions to find the 48 lucky winners.
