Yesteryear Roadrun 2015

The gallant band of enthusiasts have got together to organise the Annual Yesteryear Road Run again. We have booked Sunday April 19th 2015 for the major charity event that trundles through the villages in our local district.

Cancer Research UK are once more backing our efforts in 2015 with the understanding that any monies raised will be used locally.

Last year the Road Run attracted over 300 entries, from live steam to classic sports cars, motorbikes, tractors to stationary engines, so there is something for everyone. We hope to get the same response from enthusiasts in 2015.

As usual the procession will assemble on the Cottenham Village Green, and then will head off through Rampton, Willingham, Over, Swavesey (where we will be stopping for lunch) Longstanton, Oakington and Histon, returning to Cottenham Green in the afternoon.

We are hoping that each of the villages along the route will support the Run by creating its own carnival atmosphere. Maybe BBQs or refreshment stalls can help boost not only the collection buckets but the participants too!

We, the few, are also asking for volunteer bucket shakers, Marshalls and of course entrants to the parade. Further information will be forthcoming as soon as we can get it together. So look out for flyers and posters and if you receive an invitation to join in with the parade, don’t throw it in the bin! If you don’t want to take part, give it to someone who does.

Cancer affects everyone in some form or another.

Lets put our shoulders to the wheel to stop Cancer getting the better of anyone we know and love.

“ Together we can beat it “

All help very much appreciated no matter how small.

Yesteryear Road Run Monies Raised


A delighted committee were proud to present Cancer Research UK a cheque for £9029.31 .

The money was raised at the Cottenham Yesteryear Road Run, relaunched this year in aid of Cancer Research.
The event had over 370 entries consisting of motorbikes, scooters, vintage and classic cars, tractors, stationary engines and commercials. The procession of vehicles travelled through Cottenham, Rampton, Willingham, Over, Longstanton, Oakington and Histon collecting donations on the way.
Local people made it a very special day, Oakington even had a party to welcome the procession to their village.

Vivien Lampard, secretary, said ‘It was more popular than we had imagined, everyone concerned with running the event have been bowled over by the generosity of the local people. We are looking forward to running it again next year, and with all the good wishes we have received from this year we are hopeful for another massive cheque to give to Cancer Research’
