Due to restrictions and hygiene measures associated with COVID-19, there will be a number of changes to our usual format, including:

  • No entry fees

  • No provision of drinks

  • No club tents for the first few weeks

Whilst entry is free each week participants MUST be registered ($30) with a club beforehand in order to compete. This is an essential requirement under our COVID Safety Plan in order to keep track of participants for potential contact tracing purposes and will be strictly enforced.

It is great for all the family (10 and older) – some people prefer to make it a social event, whilst others enjoy the competition. The program is designed to fit around the major Tasmanian fun runs.

Some changes for 2020

Will we be still using the new timing system introduced in 2019 with the use of barcodes, same style as Parkrun. In fact you can use your Parkrun Barcode at our runs, so no need to carry a second barcode around. Barcodes can be obtained from the following here, print it and don’t forget it. Also while you are at it select your club as “Sandy Bay Harriers”. Still need to be registered for Out Of Stadium rego of $30 Click Here.
