Military Road Run
On the 14th April 2019 we will be commemorating the 110th anniversary of the first occasion a body of troops was moved on operations by motor transport with a road run from Sevenoaks to Hastings. In March 1909 the AA and the War Office organised the transport of 6oo Guardsmen from London to Hastings, carried in motor cars owned by members of the AA.
This will also be 11th consecutive year of the AA Commemorative Military Road Run is open to Military Soft skin vehicles and Motor Cycles (sorry no armoured vehicles) in use by British Forces from 1909 to the present day, as well as Veteran, Vintage and Classic cars and motor cycles up to 1945.
Traditionally some 60 vehicles take part, leaving from at 10am from Sevenoaks Suffolk Way Car Park, to travel through Tonbridge and Pembury and down the A21, with a stop at the Chequers Inn in Lamberhurst, to Hastings.
The vehicles will then be on display to the public at the Stade Exhibition area (on the sea front near the Old Town). First arrivals are expected from 11.30, and will be staying to approximately 15.30
The run is being organised in aid of Combat Stress and is supported by the AA.
