The Dorchester Agricultural Society has announced the return of the Dorset Tractor Run for 2022 on Father’s Day, Sunday 19th June.
The tractor run first took place in 2019, with 99 tractors taking part in the 18-mile route and raising money for First Point Dorset.
Nicki Ralph, Chair of Dorchester Agricultural Society said, “the 2019 tractor run was such a success, we are thrilled to announce its return. It’s a marvellous way for the public to admire the long history of our local agricultural community and view vintage tractors as well as modern machinery.”
This year’s nominated charities are the Farming Community Network and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
This year’s tractor run will start and finish at Daggers Gate Grain Store in West Lulworth. Event organisers are expecting more than 100 participants for the event, and spectators are welcome to join at the meeting point at 10am to watch the tractors begin their journey along the Jurassic Coast. Refreshments will be available for spectators to enjoy and a location for lunch will be advised on the day.
Those interested in participating this year can register online here . Tickets are available at £15 per tractor, per driver.
