BAMBURGH RUN UPDATE 2020

Hi All

With around three months to go before the Run we are monitoring the Corona Virus advice provided by government along with that from VMCC and MSC&R, at this stage and searching for positives, we are still hoping the general situation may stabilise and improve and that the Bamburgh Run can take place as scheduled.It seems, subject to future updates of government policy, we may just have a small window before the final decision needs to be made to proceed or postpone - we will keep in touch. In the meanwhile the Routes etc. will be established and in conjunction with Ford & Etal Estates we will be ready to run if circumstances allow it.

Regards, Mike

The Bamburgh Run is an event held annually for flat tank and post 1930 motorcycles with girder forks. It consists of a road run of either sixty or eighty miles around north Northumberland, England. It was instigated four years by Mike, a member of both the VMCC Reivers Section and the Marston Sunbeam Club and Register, to promote the use of old motorcycles in the beautiful Northumberland countyside. For the first two years, we began the run inside the grounds of Bamburgh Castle, but due to a running race also starting there on the same day, we had to look for an alternative venue. The Ford and Etal Estates came to our rescue, and were happy to hire out their village hall in the picture postcard Etal Village. This provided the perfect setting for the start and finish of the Bamburgh Run, as we were able to cater for the riders before and after the run. We try to create a sort of village fair type of event, and dress up the hall with bunting and the gold and red Northumbrian flag, as can be seen in the cover photo. We also hire a second village hall in Ellingham, as a tea/coffee stop. There, the ladies of the village provide both the riders and spectators with a fantastic spread of home baking.
