TOY RUN ON THE R62 at the Karoo Saloon (Barrydale, Klein Karoo)

Toy run Accommodation and Bikers Run Accommodation on the route 62 South Africa

With over 50 000 motorcycles participating nationally, Toy Run™ South Africa is the largest combined service club event in Africa, and the largest motorcycle charity event in the world!  Karoo Saloon offers toy run accommodation.

On 21 November 2009, the Karoo Saloon will be hosting their first Toy Run™ on the R62, a fully endorsed ‘franchise’ of the Toy Run™, which has been running for 27 years in South Africa. Everyone is welcome (not just bikers!) Bikers are invited to ride (from wherever!) to the Karoo Saloon, to arrive at any time from 12h00 onwards.

The objectives of the toy run event are:
  • To collect and distribute toys and gifts to less privileged children up to 18 years over the Christmas period
  • To improve and enhance the image of motorcyclists in their communities

The very first Toy Run™ on the R62 will be a fun-filled day with a big heart! All visitors are requested to bring a toy for an underprivileged child (please, no fluffy toys!) Books, educational toys and toys that do not promote violence are ideal! We are hoping to have the SAB Gig Rig on the day to provide the music (watch this space!) and the usual Karoo Saloon drinks and food will be available. There will also be specially printed T-shirts and caps available for purchase on the day.

Join us for a day of fun, music and the excitement of the biggest event of its kind on the planet – and bring some joy into the lives of many of our local children.

When: from 12h00 on Saturday 21 November

Where: Karoo Saloon, R62, Barrydale

Cost: Bring a toy for an underprivileged child

NB!!! ONLY LICENSED RIDERS ON LICENSED VEHICLES are allowed on the run. Please please please do NOT let your children ride on their tiny bikes on the run, as it is on public roads and all normal road rules apply.. and WILL be enforced by Traffic. Please support the run by obeying the rules and making it fun and for everyone by not doing anything DANGEROUS.

Make a child happy while being part of an exciting, first-time annual event that promises to keep growing and giving: with your support!

Looking forward to seeing you there!
