Run the Ring!
The 24th September will see the largest collection of VW’s to gather on Britain’s busiest motorway ever. Run the Ring is back and it’s bigger than ever.
For 2017 we’re so pleased that the Run the Ring crew have selected Scotty’s Little Soldiers as their charity beneficiary. Read all about the event below or take a look at their website by clicking here for further details.
It all started with a joke on Facebook when I asked…. “Anybody want to run my ring?”
In September 2016 over 400 vehicles registered to take part in a lap of the M25 Motorway in an event called Run the Ring. Over £10k was raised for Teenage Cancer Trust.
Friendships were formed that day in what was the biggest cruise seen of VW’s on the M25. So we have decided to do it all again. Only more VW’s!
We are Supporting Scotty’s Little Soldiers who look after children who have lost a parent serving in the British Forces. We would love to smash our last years total and need you to join us.
“Why on earth would you want to drive around the M25?”
We all think the same but something happened to us all that day which changed our love hate relationship with the biggest car park in the world, the M25. We wern’t rushing, commuting or visiting. For once we were just cruising with hundreds of others to make the M25 a brighter happier place and with the benefit of helping others.
Registration costs just £25 and you will be provided with large low tack door stickers for your vehicle and information about meeting points on the day.
This year you also have to option to get sponsorship from friends and family to raise a bit more cash for Scotty’s. If you would like to get sponsorship we have set up a system for you to send a link to your contacts. Simply click on the “Register for a sponsorship link” button on our website and follow the instructions. You will then be provided with a link to send to people you know to sponsor you for Run the Ring 2. Our top sponsors will be winning some great prizes so well worth the effort! You will then be able to track your sponsorship contribution by login in to the “sponsor login” area. Good Luck!
It would take 3159 VW’s to complete a ring of the M25 at 50mph!
