Bamburgh Run 2020 – new venue in place

While the ever-changing self-isolation and current lockdown situations are causing havoc with events all around the country, this year’s Bamburgh Run – taking place on Sunday, June 14 – is potentially still set to run, being hosted from a new venue, Lady Waterford Hall in Ford Village, Northumberland.

The run has started at Bamburgh Castle a number of times and for the last three years has started from Etal Village, but this year Ford Village beckons.

Intended for flat tank and girder fork machines, the run has two routes.


The short run is around 50 miles, while the long run peaks at about 80 miles, all on quiet roads with superb views.

There are plenty of refreshments available through the day, including tea and coffee at the start, a tea stop on the route and lunch at the end, and entry is just £14.

For spectators, there is plenty to see from about half nine in the morning – it’s set to be a great day out!
