Wolds Way Run

ONE hundred car enthusiasts are expected to take part in one of the MG Car Club Yorkshire Centre’s biggest charity events of the year on Sunday, May 8.

The ‘Wolds Way Run’, now in its 16th year, covers 100 miles and is named after the Wolds Way footpath which starts near the northern end of the Humber Bridge following the slope of the Wolds to the East Coast at Filey.

The walk takes several days to complete, travelling through hills, exploring hidden country dales and revealing spectacular views of the open countryside before eventually reaching cliffs overlooking the open sea.

The run aims to provide the same experience of the Wolds Way walk, but in just one day.

Start at 9.30am at the Woodland Cafe Car Park at the Humber Bridge, the cars will tour the southern and central Wolds, before stopping at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, parking on the front lawns overlooking the sea.

If you own an MG of any age, a classic or sports car and would like to take part, you can download an application form at www.mgccyorkshire.co.uk or contact 01430 810383.

Entry costs £18 per car, including a tulip style route book, rally plaque, entry to Sewerby Hall and grounds and tea/coffee for two at the KP Club. An optional barbecue is £8 per person.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Yorkshire Cancer Research. For more information, please visit www.yorkshirecancerresearch.org.uk
