Route revealed for Brian Chester Road Run tomorrow

The route has been revealed for the return of the Brian Chester Road Run tomorrow (Saturday).

The third event will take place on the roads around the Harrogate District in aid of the Sir Robert Ogden MacMillan Centre.

It will also act as a preview for Tractor Fest, which will be returning to Newby Hall & Gardens later this year. 

More than 50 vintage tractors are expected to take on the road run tomorrow, starting at 10:30am at Tates Garden Centre.

The convoy will then head along Galphay Lane towards Winksley, through Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton, Dallowgill Moor, Skelding, Grantley, Sawley, Hendon Bank, Watergate Lane, Fountains Abbey, Aldfird, Hayfield Lane, Low Lindrick Farm before finishing back at Tates Garden Centre around 1pm.

Mark Nicholson, chair of West Yorkshire NVTEC, said: 

“The annual Brian Chester Road Run has become a popular fixture in our members diaries and is our opportunity to share our love of vintage and classic tractors while remembering the legacy of a great man and his love of Tractor Fest. 

“We are delighted to be, once again, raising money for a cause which is close to Brian’s family’s hearts and we would be very grateful if the communities on the route are able to support us and dig deep.”

Tractor Fest is sponsored by Europe’s leading agricultural and machinery auctioneer Cheffins and Econ Engineering. The show is also supported by Ripon Farm Services.

It returns on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June, from 10am-4pm.
