Event details for Suffolk Mini Run


28 April 2019, 10:00 to 14:15


Starting from the Ram Meadow car park in Bury St Edmunds


  • Per mini: £16 (non-refundable)

Bury Mini Club is holding a “Suffolk Run” on Sunday 28th April 2019! The last one held in 2014 raised just over £1,000 profit and we are hoping that 80 Minis and MINIs will be making the trip through the Suffolk countryside from Bury St Edmunds to Aldeburgh. There will be prizes for best turned out and loads of draw prizes. The club has presented various gifts to its charities over the years and are hoping to do the same this year.

There will be a burger van at the start of the run in Bury St Edmunds with vehicles being on display over lunch in Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast and returning home at their leisure.

All cars will start from the Ram Meadow car park in Bury St Edmunds and will leave at one minute intervals from 10.00am. They will take a leisurely 65 mile route through the Suffolk countryside before parking up on the Aldeburgh sea front.

This means that the early starters will arrive at Aldeburgh at about 12.00 noon. The last mini to leave Bury St Edmunds (at 11.20am) should arrive at Aldeburgh at about 1.00pm. 

All cars will be parked in Aldeburgh next to the historic Moot Hall and there will be marshals to ensure this is done in such a manner that any passers-by can marvel at the assembled machinery.

The intention is to display the vehicles over the lunch time period and the Minis can leave from Aldeburgh for home at any time after the draw at 2.15pm and after the presentation (we hope by the Mayor) of the prize for best on show.

Details of the choice of starting times and requirements for insurance purposes will be shown on the application forms, which are available by looking on our website and clicking on the link.

The cost of the run is only £16 per mini (this is non-refundable) and will need to be sent with the completed application from, together with a stamped addressed envelope for your starting instructions.

Route books and plaques will be issued on the day and there will be an observation competition on the journey with a £25 cash prize for the winners.

There will be the usual sponsored draw and money will again be donated to our chosen charities, which are the East Anglian Air Ambulance, The Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and the Aldeburgh United Charities.
