Motorcycle Run and Harwich Family Fun Day
The Annual Motorcycle Run and Harwich Family Fun Day organised by Essex & Herts Air Ambulance (EHAAT) returns on September 9th.
This vital fundraising event, which will see thousands of motorcyclists ride from Ford Dunton to Harwich, ends with a Family Fun Day at Harwich Green.
Last year’s event saw more than 3,000 riders make the 60-mile trip across Essex raising over £38,000 for EHAAT. With each life-saving mission costing around £2,500, this single event could save 15 lives.
Tickets for riders are priced at £10 for a single rider and £15 for a rider with pillion passenger. This year riders can also buy raffle tickets for £5 when they enter to be in with the chance of winning; a first prize of a branded biker suite worth £1000 sponsored by Cannon BMW motorcycles, (2nd prize) a helmet fitting by Colchester Kawasaki, (3rd prize) a Children’s Balance Motorbike donated by Rep Riders, or (4th prize) a Carol Nash insurance voucher worth £50.
Jen Wall, Volunteer and Events Lead at EHAAT said:
We are really looking forward to this year’s event. The Motorcycle Run and Family Fun Day is one of our biggest fundraising events and really well supported by the thousands of bikers who ride from Ford Dunton and the spectators who come to Harwich Green to welcome them.
“The Family Fun Day at Harwich Green will again provide a day of unbeatable entertainment beside the seaside. As well as the chance to cheer on the bikers as they cross the finish line, visitors can enjoy live music, a kid’s zone and trade stands.
“Entry to the Family Fun Day is free but we are asking for a £5 donation to help us put on the day as well as to keep your local Air Ambulance operational. We can’t fly without you!”
