Carnival Running Tasmania

Carnival running is a tradition of over 130 years in Tasmania. Members of Tasmanian Masters Athletics have the opportunity to participate in a series of handicapped events at carnivals scheduled from November 2020 through to January 2021.

All events are handicapped which gives masters athletes of all ages and abilities the opportunity to receive a reward for their efforts. These rewards vary from carnival to carnival but can include prize-money; sashes and trophies.

The Carnival schedule with closing dates for entries is:

  • 29 November Richmond
  • 5 December Devonport
  • 13 December PCCCT Burnie
  • 19 December Rosebery
  • 27 December Hobart – Bikes and Spikes
  • 29 December Penguin
  • 31 December Burnie
  • 10 January Central Coast, Penguin (TBC)
  • 24 January Devonport
  • 31 January Hobart Domain Athletic Centre

There are currently Masters events scheduled for Richmond, Rosebery, Burnie (31 December only), Central Coast and both Hobart events.

Launceston, Latrobe, Devonport (Christmas carnival) and St Helens will not be held in 2020/21.
