The Brunel Run

Brunel Run Plaques
There will be no Brunel Run in 2017 as BAMGOC is taking a sabbatical.

Brunel Run 2016 was held 2nd-4th September 2016
CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE DETAILS

The Brunel Run is an annual event by the Bristol Area MG Owners' Club at the beginning of September. We believe it may now be the only weekend area MG event.

Like many good ideas, the Brunel Run was 'born' in a pub, the initial brainchild of Danny Fenton, Simon Hawkes and George Barnard. The ethos of the weekend has always been to enjoy a great run out in an MG (preferably) and, hopefully, make a bit of money toward a charity along the way.

In 1993 we raised the princely sum of £150. It is a testament to Brunel attendees (and sadly inflation) that we are able to present a sum more in the region of £1500 to our charity these days.

Since 2007 we have been privileged to use the premises of the Bristol Children's Help Society at Barton Camp near Winscombe. The facilities there are fantastic, with camping facilities plus some indoor accommodation and a heated swimming pool. All the funds raised go to help with this worthwhile charity that provides holidays for disadvantaged children from Bristol and surrounding area. Bristol Children’s Help Society is non-denominational and non-political. It exists to give needy children time away from the stresses of home life.

The weekend package currently includes two nights camping or indoor accommodation, two cooked ‘full English’ breakfasts (courtesy of Theo and his team who give their time freely to aid our charity), the run itself plus rally plaque, a meal and entertainment on Saturday evening. All you need to bring (apart from your camping stuff of course) is something to eat on Friday evening and some liquid refreshment. Recently our Friday Night Fish and Chip run has proved very popular, and we will probably be arranging this again. Please note on the booking form if you will be interested in this service, so that we may forewarn the excellent local chippy. (There are also other take away outlets nearby if you prefer.)

For those unable to make the whole weekend, we are always pleased to accept entries for the Saturday only. The entry fee includes The Brunel Run, a rally plaque, and light refreshments upon return to Barton Camp. "Run Only" guests can also book a breakfast and/or whatever delights we are providing for Saturday evening.

If we have run out of indoor accommodation and you don't feel like camping, scroll to the end of the page for some information on local accommodation which may be of interest.
