NSRA Fun Run

14th-16th June 2019

Rutland Showground, Oakham, Leicestershire

The National Street Rod Association Committee is pleased to announce that the 2019 NSRA Fun Run
will be held at Rutland Showground, Oakham, Leicestershire on the 14th, 15th and 16th of June 2019.

Over the past two years, whilst we have been holding the Fun Run at Great Yarmouth Racecourse, we have been working hard in the background to find a more permanent home for the event. We have considered all options suggested, taken on board all feedback given by Members and believe that Rutland Showground is going to be a welcomed venue. This does mean, however, that we have to compromise on the event dates, moving the show two weeks later than usual.

We would like to pass on our thanks to David Helsdon and all the team at Great Yarmouth Council, Jan Leeder, Michael Cole and Darren Layfield for all their help whilst we have been ‘at the seaside’. These people have helped us keep the Fun Run going, and for this, we are very grateful.

We have really enjoyed our time at Great Yarmouth. Whilst we appreciate the location wasn’t suited to all, it meant that we have been able to keep the event going whilst searching for new options, and it has been great ‘fun’ trying something new and different.

We hope to bring some of the new, fresher ideas, that we have been able to experience the past two years at Great Yarmouth to the new venue, whilst still retaining the core elements of the show that you have all come to know and love.

In the meantime, please save the date and more details will be announced over the coming months.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope that you will look forward to next year’s show.
