#1 Run out in Cheshire, this Sunday 27th

Post by chuffer » Wed Sep 23, 2020 9:50 pm

I’ve made a note of this in my diary but for the life of me I don’t know who’s organising it, if it’s still on or where it starts. Can anyone else shed some light on it please, as it might be of interest as the weather forecast looks half decent?

Many thanks

Hi Ray

The event you're thinking of was the Great North Run in our (Derbyshire/Cheshire) region of the E-Type Club, organised by Jonathan Mitchell. Starting point was The Windmill at Tabley (right next to Junction 19 of the M6). Richard and I were also meant to be hosting a breakfast meeting at Hassop Station near Chatsworth last Sunday.

Owing to the new government restrictions, both events have been cancelled. As it stands, the GNR has been re-scheduled to 25th April 2021, and we will confirm if/when we will hold a breakfast meeting in the Spring.

Cheers

Simon

Hi Simon,
Many thanks for your prompt reply. Yes, that all rings a bell and it was of interest because we took part in the last Derbyshire run out which you organised. (mine is the green car you took photos of).

I look forward to hearing if the event is successfully resurrected next year.

Thanks again

Hi Ray

Yes, no problem, we'll keep Forum members posted as well.

Absolutely - Richard and I happened to be behind your car last year on the run for most of the way, which meant we got some excellent shots!

Take care for now
