Ticket Prices

£10 – Rider standard ticket

£15 – Rider and Pillion standard ticket

£5 – Optional Donation to Family Fun Day

Family fun day entry is FREE but you can make a £5 donation to help us host a fun filled day of entertainment, as well as to keep your local air ambulance operational. We can’t fly without you!

All pre-registered tickets will be entered into our prize draw

Rider Sponsorship

Get sponsored by friends and family to help raise those all-important, life-saving funds. Each mission costs on average £2,500 so we need YOU to help keep us operational. If 1,000 riders raised £30-£50 in sponsorship money we would raise enough to fund 12 missions!

For those of you that would like to take on the challenge and raise your own sponsorship for your local Air Ambulance, just purchase a standard ticket and raise sponsorship by setting up your JustGiving page or downloading a sponsorship form.


This year the route will follow A414, A12 and A120 into Harwich.
