Egg Run 2016

Moorlanders MCC Egg Run 2016

Hundreds of bikers faithfully joined in the Egg Run despite the wet and windy conditions on Easter Sunday this year.

The charity motorcycle event, now in its 19th year is held by Moorlanders MCC in association with Widows Sons South West Chapter. They gathered on Davidstow Airfield Easter Sunday morning to donate £5 and chocolate eggs, before being lead on a circular route around North Cornwall.

Their journey took them through Boscastle, up to Bude for a stop at the Lock Gates Tea Room.

It ended at Bowden Derra care home, Polyphant, for a bar-b-que, live music and prize giving celebration of a job well done.  Here, they officially presented Bowden Derra with the wooden gazebo Moorlanders had built from the money raised at last year’s Egg Run.

Over £3,000 was raised on the day, and with collections still to be made, Moorlanders MCC is pleased they’ll be making worthwhile donations to local children’s charities.  These are Children’s Hospice South West, Action for Children and the Special Needs units of Camelford primary and St Stephens CP school, Launceston.

Our complete set of photographs of the day are viewable on Facebook.Moorlanders’ video of the 2016 Egg Run is on YouTubeHot food was served on the airfield by Big Al’s Burger Bar, and portable toilets were provided from Cornwall Conveniences.  Many thanks to them for their support. 

More photographs of the Egg Run at the airfield are on Peter Glaser, freelance photographer’s website.


As with every year, Moorlanders Egg Run wouldn’t be a success without the kind help and support of fellow bikers, local business and shops.  Here’s the start of the many thank yous…
