Tassal Ten Fun Run
Tassal Ten and Annabelle’s Run – Dover and the World!
We are delighted to hold the 2020 Tassal Ten as an in-person and as a virtual event! 2020 has been a challenging year to say the least and our first priority is the health and safety of participants. We are holding the event in Dover on Sunday, 1 November 2020 with a COVID Safe plan in place. We will continue to reassess the health situation and communicate any updates.
This year we will also have an option for virtual participation, this means you can join us from anywhere in the world for the Tassal Ten or Annabelle’s Run. You can run the virtual event from 30 October to 1 November 2020. Record and submit your time and you will go on the virtual leaderboard.
All participants in the Tassal Ten and Annabelle’s Run will receive a finisher medal. Virtual runners receive their medal and a certificate in the mail!
This running event is a fundraiser! All profits will go the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Royal Hobart Hospital. You can also donate to PICU during the registration or on the day.
Should the current public health advice change, the in-person run may have to be cancelled. All registrations for the in-person run will then automatically be converted to a virtual run participation. As this is a fundraiser, no refunds will be issued.
Online registrations open 15 September and close Saturday, 31 October 2020 at 5 pm. Numbers are strictly limited! No late registrations, no registrations available on the day.
In cooperation with Tassal, Dover’s inaugural “Tassal Ten” Fun Run was held on Sunday December 15th 2019 along with “Annabelle’s Run”- 2 km just for the young ones.
The running events were closely followed by Dover & South Action Group‘s Christmas Parade and party- a fantastic day for the Far South community!
The Tassal Ten Fun Run was born out of a long-standing desire to give back to the community, in thanks for the wonderful support for the Skinner family in their time of need. Little Annabelle was just 17 months old when she was involved in a freak accident resulting in a horrific head injury. Annabelle and her family spent anxious weeks by her side in Hobart’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit – with expert care and attention Annabelle made a full recovery and is now a happy healthy 5 year old.
At the time of her injury, Annabelle’s parents Gemma and John became very aware of the pressures that the Hobart PICU face and they have nurtured the concept of a community Fun Run to support the Paediatric Unit. This year’s event will again be a fundraiser for Hobart’s PICU and we know that our community will get behind this initiative.
