The Story of the Ladies' Tractor Run
by Annie Chapman

The Beginning

The idea for the run came one November evening when John and I sat by the woodburner mardling over what I might do following my imminent retirement. The discussion revolved round various charity ambitions which, frankly, were out of the question considering my age! Riding across deserts or mountains, even with an organised charity trip were really a little too far fetched. The idea for a ladies' road run came from John following our ramblings over the achievable efforts for charity we had already undertaken.

Belonging, as we did then, to two tractor clubs, The Old Ram and the David Brown (Suffolk and Norfolk branch) we had already shared happy days with fellow members exploring unseen environs of these two counties from the double seat of KBJ.

"Why don't you organise a tractor road run just for ladies?" suggested John. Why don't I! The spark of the idea soon grew and I found myself thinking how can I do this, who would come, where would we go, start, lunch, etc. etc. and WHY?

Obviously it had to be a charity with ladies in mind. Recently a friend of ours had been diagnosed with breast cancer and this had taken everyone quite by surprise and the awareness of this disease and it's prevalence in this country were quite an eye opener. It seemed the obvious choice.
