The 2017 Bamburgh Run, for flat tankers and girder fork machines, is to be held on June 11th and with a new venue for this year, Etal Village Hall in Northumberland, which will be the start and finish points, signing on, with tea, coffee and cakes at the start and lunch at the finish. Midway coffee stop will again be at Eglingham, hosted by the W.I., the  route will still take in Bamburgh and offer quiet roads and some fantastic sea and country views.

Hopefully we can get more than six Sunbeams at this years event although after saying that – all are welcome.

There will also be a 60 mile social run into the Cotswolds starting at 12 noon on Saturday 19th  from Prebendal farm.This will take in some of the idyllic Cotswold landscape and villages. Route cards available or follow me/drop off. There will be a couple of pub stops for refreshments. Bibury was a particular favourite last year.

On Saturday evening there will be a meal at either one of the local pubs or at the infamous
Indian in Shrivenham if enough interest!

If you require accommodation and would like some help please get it touch soonish as  the local inns and pubs with rooms are busy at this time of year.
Camping/ Camper van area available! (please enquire)
