Route: Bromborough, Rhos-On-Sea & Llandudno (Directions)
Admission: Free

Website: Wirral Minis

This year was the third time I’ve taken part in the The Wirral To Llandudno Run and it’s always worth the early morning start. If you own a Mini or know someone who does, then you really must come along on the run next year, which will be held on Sunday 8th January.

The run begins at the Croft Retail and Leisure Park in Bromborough and participants can choose from two different routes to the first stopping point at Rhos-On-Sea. The Minis then travel onwards to the top of the Great Orme in Llandudno before lining up along the promenade.

You don’t have to be a member of the Wirral Minis Owners Club to take part, but they do encourage everyone to purchase a plaque for their car. The sales from these plaques help to cover the clubs running costs and support its chosen charities. For more details on how to enter your Mini and join the club, please visit their website.

As always, I recommend you  wear suitable warm clothing as it gets extremely cold on top of the Orme! There are several places along the run were you can buy breakfast or a drink and use the facilities. As for lunch? I know a rather nice Wetherspoons called The Palladium that you can visit.

The St. Asaph Car & Motorbike Show Fun Run on Easter Sunday was a new event for exhibitors taking part in the show this year, and one I hope will be repeated next year.

The run was a lovely scenic route through Northern Wales, which took in the views of Rhuddlan, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Deganwy and St. Asaph.

The accompanying show on Easter Monday unfortunately had to be postponed due to a severely waterlogged field. For updates on when the show will be rescheduled, please visit the website.

Admission: Free

The Wirral To Llandudno Run is always great fun for anyone who is a fan of the Mini. Held every January by the the Wirral Minis club, the run starts in Bromborough and participants can choose to take either the scenic route or a more direct one to Rhos-On-Sea.

After a short stop at Rhos-On-Sea, the run then continues to the top of the Great Orme in Llandudno before finally finishing on the promenade.

The run is free to enter and view, but the club does encourage everyone taking part to purchase a plaque for their car, as the sales from these help to cover the clubs running costs and support its chosen charities. For more details on how to enter your Mini and join the club, please visit their website.

Facilities are limited on the run, you can usually buy a drink before setting off at Bromborough and again at Rhos-On-Sea. There is a toilet available at the top of the Great Orme, which costs 20p. I strongly recommend you wrap up warm for this event, as the top of the Great Orme can be extremely cold!
