Return of the Pink Ladies’ Tractor Road Run

10th Jul 2024

Nearly two hundred women dressed in pink took part in this year’s Pink Ladies’ Tractor Road Run.

The annual event, which has been running for over twenty years and was created by Annie Chapman, raises money for Cancer Research UK.

Since 2004, the event has raised over £1 million for breast cancer research, receiving support from local communities around Harleston, Norfolk, and all around the world.

The 20-mile route through south Norfolk and north Suffolk takes in the parkland of Gawdy Hall Estate where the drivers of the decorated tractors, family and friends and spectators traditionally gather for a picnic.

It’s also a chance for everyone to walk amongst the impressively decorated vintage and modern tractors, before the event continues on along Estate tracks and back to Thorpe Abbotts airfield.

This year, 194 ladies signed up to take part including 60 who were new to the event.



Gawdy Hall Estate Manager Mark Mayhew said: “We really enjoy welcoming the Pink Ladies’ Tractor Run to the Estate each year and it is such an important cause to support.”

So far, this year’s event has raised over £63k, but the total amount will be announced in September.
