24 April: Corinium Run
2004 saw Cirencester Car Club Ltd promote its first Touring Assembly and Economy Run. The event was very well received by participants who enjoyed a scenic tour through many of the traffic-free roads that are to be found in the Cotswolds, once clear of the main highways. In the intervening years, the Corinium Run has grown to become one of the most popular events in the Scenic Tours calendar; a prompt entry is advised to avoid possible disappointment.
Starting and finishing near Cirencester, the run takes in the pretty villages and the dry-stone walled majesty of the Cotswolds as it covers approximately 120 miles on a tulip roadbook. Normally split into several sections, with route checks and a lunch halt, opportunity to stop and pose for photographs or stop for a picnic.
There are printed photo certificates for finishers and at the end there will be a two course buffet style meal.
The route books are generally easy to follow as the organisers don't want you to get lost but you do need to keep your eyes peeled for some of the turns! Be careful that the camaraderie of these events can be infectious and you can find yourself doing more serious navigational rallies!
Virtually all cars are eligible — in case your classic Honda is off the road being fettled.
