We have had to make a number of changes in order to keep this special tradition alive in the safest way possible, and to comply with the imposed laws and restrictions due to Covid-19. We are however, still ploughing ahead with permit applications, safety plans, and artwork designs for the MRA Toy Run on Saturday December 5. We need your support more than ever this year, as we continue to assist the Salvation Army with their Christmas Appeal – giving hope to those battling tough times.

Due to safety restrictions limiting the number of people who can gather outside, and to allow for contact-tracing, the MRA Toy Run will have a capped number of participants this year (exact number limits to be determined). To do this, we will be implementing a ticketing system for this year’s Run, which will go live next Wednesday November 4. The purchase of a $35 ticket will ensure your involvement in the event, and each ticket will include a limited edition 2020 Toy Run t-shirt and badge!

We have thought long and hard on how best we can still put this event together and include as many people as possible, and the only other alternative would have been to cancel this year’s run. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we finalise the remaining details to hold a safe and successful Toy Run as best we can.

41st MRA TOY RUN 2020 NEWS – September Update

The MRA South committee is working hard with all stakeholders to bring Tasmania a Toy Run this year, this work is still ongoing has created some challenges for all involved.

The question you may be asking, What will Toy Run 2020 look like?

What the MRA 41st Toy Run in 2020 will look like will very much depend on Tasmania’s COVID19 status in coming months leading up to and on the day of the event and we will be complying to all the recommendations and regulations set forth Tasmania Police, Department of Health, Tasmania and by local, state and federal Government mandates.
We have been meeting with Tasmania Police and will be working closely with them and the Salvation Army to come up with an event plan that puts the health and safety of those participating and that of the general public first and foremost.

What does this mean?

It is very likely that this years Toy Run will look very different from those in past years or those in years to come but with these challenges in mind we are hoping to make it unique and memorable should we be given the green light to proceed.

We will keep updating everyone along this journey as discussions progress.
