Great weather, a great crowd and great atmosphere marked the 20th Sammy Miller Run on Sunday, August 27, but the sweltering conditions made the chosen 59-mile route quite enough for most riders, who were waved off by clerk of the course Percy Gosling.
Percy, who is now standing down after fulfilling the role for two decades, was presented with a trophy
by museum curator Bill Gibson in recognition of his excellent organisation and route planning.
The lunch stop was at Drusilla’s Inn, Horton, and the awards were presented by Rosemary Miller in the courtyard after the riders returned to the museum. The trophy winners received memento trophies to keep.
This year it was a pleasure to see a ‘mum, dad and dog’ trio in their sidecar outfit all the way from Holland. They’d heard about the run at their holiday accommodation and turned up to watch the departure – and the organisers were so impressed that they awarded them a Sammy Miller Trophy, much to their surprise and delight!
