The 2019 event: 14th-16th June 2019
Rutland Showground, Oakham, Leicestershire

Fun Run 2019The 2019 NSRA Fun Run was held at Rutland Showground, Oakham, Leicestershire on the 14th, 15th and 16th of June 2019.

The 47th NSRA Fun Run kicked off on the Friday morning with gates opening at 9am.

Friday – visitors popped into NSRA hospitality to register their show car and pick up their event mug, dash plaque and collectable event T-shirt.

Back at site, we were excited to be joined by the heady V12 Merlin engine that was fired up each day during the weekend.

Saturday morning started off with our tot rod activity. Don’t forget that all tot rods need to be registered with the NSRA – it’s free to do so and the kids get their very own ‘driving license’ too!

The cruise left mid-morning to take in some of the scenic sights of the area.

Sunday’s show ‘n’ shine day was open to the public. It’s was also Father’s Day and what better way of spending time with your Dad than at a Hot Rod and Custom car show!

In 2019, we had a Popular & Anglia Anniversary. The Ford Anglia E04A turned 80 this year, the E494A turned 70 and both the Anglia 105e and Popular 100e turned 60 this year! So, we celebrated all things Pop and brought the Pop Festival back to mark these significant birthdays.

Entertaining throughout was John Price, our show compere. The event came to a close with our prize giving ceremony featuring the Participants Choice award and Top Five.
