2018 Run Details

Wessex and New Forest Triumph Run - Sunday 29th April 2018

All Triumph Cars and their owners are invited to join us again for what has become a must event in the Triumph calendar. 

The Run will start from the Ringwood Long Stay / Lorry Park at approximately 10.30am on Sunday 29th April 2018. It will be the usual leisurely drive through the New Forest and surrounding countryside in the company of other Triumph cars and their owners.

This year the format will change slightly in that there will not be a halfway halt.

Instead there will be a Run of approximately 2 hours length which will end at Boldre Memorial Hall where complementary afternoon teas will be available.

We hope this new format will provide everyone more time to enjoy your picnics and socialise with other Triumph enthusiasts at the end of the Run.

The day will conclude with the customary Prize Giving around 3.30pm. 

The closing date for entries is 31st March 2018. 

Entries received after this date are not guaranteed and will be at the discretion of the organisers.

We look forward to seeing you and your Triumph on the day.

This year saw the revival of a popular event after a break of 5 years. 74 Cars turned up at Avon Heath Country Park on the day. Starting around 10.00am, the Run took in a route of approximately 64 miles through the western region of The New Forest and the surrounding countryside. There was a halfway stop at The Compasses Inn at Damerham with the route returning back to Avon Heath Country Park around 2.00pm. The meticulous planning and organisation paid off which meant everybody had a thoroughly good day out – we even had glorious sunshine!

Of the 74 starters all but 3 made it to the end – One Stag that unfortunately did not want to start one TR7 that lost a rear spring and a Porsche (TR 8 Substitute) that had a binding front caliper – so much for exotica!
