Welcome to the home of the Toyrun
The VMC is continuing the legacy of the Motorcycle Riders Association Toyrun as the major Toyrun event in Victoria. We hope you can make it and enjoy the entertainment we have organised on the day. Keep safe and bring your donations and gifts for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. And thank you from all of us.
The 39th Traditional Melbourne Toy-Run
Sunday 18th December 2016
This spectacular event is Melbourne’s premier Toyrun. Please note the date change and mark December 18th in your diaries.
Motorcycle Riders dress up their bikes, trikes and scooters with Christmas decorations and ride from all over Victoria to bring gifts, toys and food for the children and families of Victoria in need. The Salvation Army trucks will again be waiting to receive these gifts from the bikers and public.
Rob Salvatore, Victorian Motorcycle Council Chair said “This welcomed partnership with Tabcorp Park ensures a bright future for the Toy Run and for the all-important charitable tradition at its heart. Riders have a rich history of giving at Christmas time and this partnership only encourages that legacy to grow.”
Shane Gloury, Tabcorp Park CEO said “Tabcorp Park is delighted to be involved and a part of the 2016 Traditional Melbourne Toy Run. An estimated 8,000 bikes entering Tabcorp Park promises to be a must see event for the local Community.” He went on to say “The Toy Run is an iconic event on the annual Calendar and plays a huge role each Christmas in putting a smile on the faces of kids in need as part of the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. We look forward to working with the Victorian Motorcycle Council and the Organisers to make the 2016 Melbourne Toy Run the biggest and best ever.”
Trade stalls and sponsorship enquiries are welcome.

Suddenly, people liked us. They really, really liked us. And, if you listened hard enough you could hear bikers all overAmercia thinking, “What a great idea!”
Toy runs popped up like mushrooms. The next year, 1974, there wasn’t a biker’s rights organization or an outlaw club in America that didn’t sponsor a toy run. By the time Harley-Davidson invented its own club, the Harley Owners Group (HOG), in 1983 the toy run had become an institution.
There are toyruns happening all around Australia, use the pull down menus on the right for the one closest to you! They are welcome to all riders, their familes and friends. The Victorian Motorcycle Council hopes all riders will attend and support as many toyruns as possible and remember that this is all about the kids and those in need. Have fun!
