Race to the Taste

Monday, December 18, 2017

The 2017 Race, on the 31st of December, is supporting BIAT! BIAT will receive $2 for every adult entry and $1 for every child/concession entry. Registrations are open now - early bird registration closes on 26th of December.

The OVA Southern Saints are proud to announce that the Race to the Taste returns for a second time in 2017, with the annual event being held on the 31st December. 

Starting at the Domain Athletics Centre, the Race offers both a 3km and 6km run and walk. 

The Race finishes at the doorstep of the Taste of Tasmania festival - ready for a recovery morning tea/lunch.

The 3km fun run and walk, introduced in 2013, has been developed to cater for the growing demand from all ages, including children and families. 

The 6km run and walk is designed for those wanting more of a challenge or to really work up an appetite for the Taste.

Support BIAT

BIAT is fortunate to be the 2017 recipient of donations from the Race to the Taste.

In 2017, $2.00 from every adult entry and $1.00 from every child/concession entry will go to BIAT.

These funds will help us to continue to provide brain injury information, referral, advocacy and education in Tasmania.
