Registration opens today for the Tweed Run’s first London ride in partnership with headline sponsor Rugby Ralph Lauren on 26th November 2011.
Returning triumphant from a fantastic event in New York on 15th October, Tweed Run continues its successful partnership with Rugby Ralph Lauren to present another Tweed Run in London this November. With coverage of the US event in the New York Times, the New York Observer and across the blogosphere, the Tweed Run comes home with another special charity cycle ride in its own inimitable style.
The London Rugby Tweed Run will be held on November 26th, and a subsequent ride will follow in Tokyo. On this occasion, London participants will gather at the Rugby store in Covent Garden and take part in special activities occurring throughout the route, from the classic Tea Break to an exclusive soiree at the end of the course. Additionally, prizes will be awarded in numerous categories including the usual awards for Best Vintage Bicycle, Most Dapper Chap and Most Dashing Dame.
Initially, 250 places will be available online via rugby.com and tweedrun.com starting at noon on November 1st and 50 subsequent places will be allocated by way of a prize draw at the Rugby store in Covent Garden. The winners will be announced and contacted on November 19th.
We are also proud to continue our partnership with Murdock London, who are running a Tweed Run competition!
So sign up and join in! Brush off those tweeds and prepare your trusty metal steeds for the first London Rugby Tweed Run!
