The enthusiastic Westmorland MCC headed up by super enthusiast Peter Remington have plans well advanced for the annual Bob MacGregor Memorial Road Run 2017, which takes place on Tuesday 25th April.

Again starting and finishing in MacGregor’s home town of Killin, Perthshire, the route takes in many of the old SSDT section locations from the 1960s and even earlier.

The route is around 180 road miles on a variety of A and B class rural roads and is still attracting some genuine trials machines of yesteryear.

The Guest of Honour this year is ever-green John Holmes a well known Cumbrian character who loves this run and the enjoyment it brings, especially if the weather is kind!

The start and finish is at the McLaren Hall, Main Street, Killin FK21 8UH and is open to Pre-1975 motorcycles (preferred). It is a circular route: Killin – Aberfeldy – Loch Rannoch area – Killin.

The first machines leave the start at 10.00 am and then groups of 5-10 leave at minute intervals. There is a lunch break on route.

Entries are to Peter Remington, Kenrig, Levens, Kendal, LA8 8DT or e-mail him on premington2@gmail.com
