ECMC Easter Charity Run

ECMC Easter Charity Run

27.03.2016 - 27.03.2016


The East Coast Mini Club are pleased to announce that this fantastic event is back for 2016 and this year is gearing up to be even bigger and better than ever before.

Due to the ever increasing amount of Mini’s taking part a new start point was sought for last years run and we fully expect somewhere in the region of 200 Mini’s to take part, and we are ready for it!

Start point – Run pack registration, Event brief, Raffle tickets available, Burger and hot drinks available.

Middle point – Quick rest stop and re group – Exclusive parking on the showground, burger van with drinks available, more raffle tickets, great opportunity to stretch those legs and re program the sat sav!

Finish point – Charity Auction, Raffle prizes, Trophy for best MINI and mini, merchandise, membership stand (enjoy the experience?Sign up for more!), Mini for Heroes, Fish and chips, of course the sea side and pleasures of Southwold.


The chosen charity benefiting from your support this year is Help For Heroes.



This year your start point will be Ram Meadow Car Park, Cotton Lane, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk but as in previous years your run will take you through the fine Suffolk countryside and on out to Southwold on the East Coast, albeit with a short, but special, stop for refreshments at Stonham Barns en route.

Full details of the route will be in the run notes issued to each driver on the day.
