The Egg Run

Well what an amazing day for the 2023 Egg Run! Firstly everyone from Widows Sons Kernow Grand Chapter would like to thank all who attended, supported, donated and helped towards the event. 

Without you all it wouldn’t be the amazing event it has turned out to be, with support from not just the bikers on the day but the spectators lining the Airfield and the streets as well as the motorists who kindly waited as the Run passed by. 

Thank you for all the feedback we have received regarding the event, marshals and supporters. We work very hard leading up to the Egg Run to ensure the day goes as safely and as smoothly as possible. It’s worth every single second to have your support for such worthy and exceptional charities!

Over 1000 bikers and supporters met at Davidstow Airfield at the start of a 60 miles route to our final destination – Bowden Derra who were fantastic as always. We collected 400 chocolate donations and from the £5 per bike at the start, corporate and masonic donations, to the raffles held – the total raised currently stands £5000!

Each year we work with: Childrens Hospice South West, Little Harbour; the Learning Support Units at Camelford Primary and St Stephens, Launceston; and Bowden Derra care facility, which kinds hosts the end event. 

We would also like to thank the many businesses across Cornwall and into Devon that contributed raffle prizes. Your generosity is always appreciated. 

Thank you to the shops and businesses that contributed with raffle prizes

The History

Since 1997, an Egg Run has been held on Easter Sunday in Cornwall, and raised in total over £55,000 for local children’s charities.

Starting at Davidstow Airfield, motorcyclists gather to donate £5 per bike and chocolate eggs for children in care, and then start on a pre-planned and fully marshalled motorbike run around North Cornwall.

The Egg Run ends at Bowden Derra care facility, with live music, bar-b-que, stalls and a raffle.

Our charities include Children’s Hospice South West, who we have been supporting since conception of Little Harbour, their purpose built facility in St Austell, Cornwall that provides respite and end of life care to children with life limiting diagnosis. Most years we have donated £1,000 to Little Harbour per year.

The Egg Run also raises money for the learning support units (ARBs) of Camelford and St Stephens Launceston primary schools.

The history of the Egg Run in Cornwall dates back to 1997, when a trio of bikers had the good idea of organising a ride on Easter Sunday, collecting donations to local children’s charities and taking chocolate eggs to them. The run proved popular, and became an annual event. In 2001 the Moorlanders was formed to take responsibility of holding the Egg Run, and in 2012 the Widows Sons became involved.
