The annual Bob MacGregor Memorial road run takes place on Tuesday 26th April at Killin, Perthshire.

Organised by the Cumbria Classic MCC under the guiding hand of Peter Remington, the run takes in 130 miles of rural Perthshire roads and stretches over some of the old Scottish Six Days Trial routes from the 1950s and 1960s.

The guest of honour this year is Bill Brown or Mr. Wulfsport as he is affectionately known in off-road motorcycling circles. Bill was an accomplished pole-vaulter in his youth and then a motocross rider who opened Bill Brown Motorcycles in Whitehaven, Cumbria in the 1970s.

Double British Motocross champion Vic Allan will ride his very special NSU/Greeves and Trials Guru will be there riding his 1964 AJS 16C short-stroke, the machines first real long run since a rebuild in 2011.

The start is the MacLaren Hall in the centre of Killin and pays homage to the ony Scotsman to win the Scottish Six Days Trial, Bob MacGregor who owned the local greengrocers shop in the village. MacGregor rode factory Rudge machines and won the SSDT twice, 1932 and 1935.
