What is the Wirral Egg Run

The Wirral Egg Run is an annual event which raises money for local children, children’s charities and donates Easter eggs to hospitalised children. Traditionally it takes place on the Sunday immediately preceding Easter.  The 2010 Wirral Egg Run will be no exception, taking place on Sunday 28th March.  Several thousand participants are expected to take part in the event.

Participants gather on motorcycles at New Brighton and ride a 20 mile pre-determined route to Clatterbridge hospital. Once there, they deliver their Easter eggs for children in Wirral. Whilst the donation and delivery of Easter eggs forms the core iconic tradition of the Egg Run, the more significant aspect is now the delivery by participants of cash donations to the Wirral Egg Run charity.

Spectators line the route and can also contribute their donations. Official Wirral Egg Run collectors are present at New Brighton, Clatterbridge and along the route. Separate fund raising events are held across the Wirral, co-ordinated under the auspices of The Wirral Egg Run Committee.
