The South Downs Run is a scenic and non-competitive drive of about 70 miles along the beautiful South Downs from Bury Hill to Eastbourne in Sussex. All MG and Sprite owners are welcome regardless of club affiliations.
The run continues to be very popular - over 220 cars are again expected so early booking is essential to ensure your place. Entries span the MG range from the earliest to the latest models.
The run will start from Whiteways Roundabout, Bury Hill, between 08:30 and 11:00. Entrants will be given Tulip route instructions at the start.
Entrants remain mainly on or in sight of the South Downs throughout the run. There are numerous places along the route that provide refreshments and facilities. The Western Lawns at the finish make a superb picnic site, with the attraction of a 1940s style big band playing all afternoon. The event finishes at 5 p.m. and the lawns are to be vacated by 6 p.m.
The entry fee, just £22, covers a magnetic rally plaque, route instructions, programmes, finishers’ plaques, and wonderful entertainment.
