Welcome to the

West Sussex MG Owners’ Club

  A club based in the Worthing area for all those owning, enjoying or simply sharing our interest in MG cars.

The South Downs Run

The South Downs Run is a scenic and non-competitive drive of about 70 miles along the beautiful South Downs from Bury Hill to Eastbourne in Sussex.   All MG and Sprite owners are welcome regardless of club affiliations.

The run  continues to be very popular - over 220 cars are again expected so early booking is essential to ensure your place.  

Entries span the MG range from the earliest to the latest models.  If the Run is over subscribed we will operate a reserve list to fill any cancellations and notify you accordingly.

As last year, the run will start from Whiteways Roundabout, London Road, Bury Hill, Nr Arundel, BN18 9FD between 08:30 and 11:00. Entrants will be given Tulip route instructions at the start. Some 4 hours should be allowed for the journey as you will be travelling at a leisurely pace in keeping with the traffic laws prevailing along the route.

Entrants remain mainly on or in sight of the South Downs throughout the run.  There are numerous places along the route that provide refreshments and facilities.  The Western Lawns at the finish make a superb picnic site, with the attraction of a 1940s style big band playing all afternoon.  The event finishes at 5 p.m. and the lawns are to be vacated by 6 p.m.  Dogs are welcome - ‘Poop & Scoop’ laws apply on the lawns at Eastbourne and bins are provided.

The entry fee, just £22, covers all organising costs, magnetic rally plaque, route instructions, programmes, finishers’ plaques, entertainment etc.
