MRASA Toy Run
The MRASA Toy Run has been held for many years, and usually occurs annually on the second Sunday in December. The MRASA organises and funds this event with incredible support from volunteers, sponsors and organisations who are proud and willing to be involved.
Due to the Adelaide Motorsport Festival having its funding cut, they will not be holding their Victoria Park portion of the event this year, which frees up the venue for the MRSA Toy Run on Sunday 8 December. The Toy Run committee has re-organised vendors and venue registrations to enable them to use Victoria Park.
The Toy Run will be departing from the Clipsal Track at 11am and will make their way to Callington Oval via Hutt St, Glen Osmond Road and the South Eastern Freeway.
Their aim is to hold a community event to celebrate motorcycling with a strong focus on assisting the children of families in need during the festive season. They have traditionally chosen St Vincent de Paul as a beneficiary of the thousands of toys and gifts which are distributed to families in need.
Admission is $5 and MRA Association & Children under 16 FREE.
The Ride on the Day
The Toy Run will depart at 11am via the western gate of the Clipsal Track, Wakefield Street, Adelaide. Follow behind Santa and his marshals as they travel along Wakefield Street, turning left onto Hutt Street, left onto Glen Osmond Road, onto the Freeway, turning off at the Callington exit and following the designated route to Callington Oval, arriving at approximately 12 noon.
Speeds will remain lower than posted limits: about 40 kph in the suburbs, initially about 60 kph on the freeway to enable riders who are separated by traffic lights to catch up so that they can present a spectacular mass of motorcycles, then 80 kph to the Callington exit.
They will use the centre and left-hand lanes of the Freeway to enable other traffic to pass safely on the outside lane.
Ample bike parking will be available on Oval No. 2 (the back oval). No bike parking will be available on or around Oval No. 1 other than that allocated for displays.
