Over the past 20 years, the Moorlanders Egg Run has raised around £35,000.
The purpose of the event is to distribute Easter Eggs to people in special needs care in the local community, and to raise much needed funds for children’s charities in Cornwall through contributions by each rider taking part. The Egg Run has been held annually on Easter Sunday, except for the year of the Foot & Mouth outbreak.
In return for the entry charge and Easter Eggs donated, the participating riders received a souvenir key ring and enjoyed a marshalled tour of our local patch. The route is not made public before the event, but marshalled at every road junction or major course deviation. Riders are also given a meal voucher, which they exchange for a free burger at the end event, kindly hosted by Bowden Derra Park, Polyphant for the last five years.
We hold a raffle on the day, and present Awards with trophies in a range of categories. We also raise money by a second raffle draw and by corporate sponsorship. We are extremely grateful to the local businesses and motorcycle traders for kindly donating prizes, and to the continued generosity of our corporate sponsors.
Since 2012, the event has been held in association with Widows Sons MBA, with the South West Chapter assisting in marshalling and raising money.
The Egg Run enables Moorlanders MCC to make significant donations to local children’s charities. These are Action for Children, Little Harbour (CHSW), the learning support units of Camelford and St Stephens, Launceston primary schools and Bowden Derra care home.
Action for Children is a national charity with a division in Cornwall. The Egg Run donates to a local fund used for amenities and adventure trips for Young Carers, children who act as carers for their parent.
Children’s Hospice South West has a purpose built facility in Cornwall called Little Harbour that provides respite and palliative care to children with life limited diagnosis. The Egg Run contributed to the construction of Little Harbour and continues to financially support its ongoing costs.
The two primary schools supported by the Egg Run Are in Camelford and Launceston, when they have Area Resource Bases, which Are teaching units for children with learning development needs. The donations are directed towards purchase of specialised equipment for the children.
Plans for the 2018 Egg Run are well in-hand, with Cornwall Conveniences supplying portable toilets on the airfield. The catering van will be serving hot teas and bacon butties and, of course, we're making 20th Anniversary key rings, which will be given out to the first 250 bikes entering.
SEE YOU ON EASTER SUNDAY!
Please arrive with a full tank and a £5 per bike for the entry gate on Davidstow airfield runway.
