Here is Brian’s report on this year’s Raid Tan Hill - (to be printed in the 2CVGB Magazine.)

Raid Tan Hill 2014. The Sarah Monaghan Memorial Run.

Considering the country wide atrocious weather in the weeks preceding the event we were pleasantly surprised at the number of cars that turned up. Over seventy A series vehicles made the run to Great Britain’s highest pub.
This year the weather was good all the way and going over Fleet Moss, Yorkshire's highest road, we even had snow on the ground, giving the upland moors an almost Arctic look.

After stopping in Hawes for mulled wine we set off again to tackle the final push over the Buttertubs Pass and then the legendary Keld Bank before the final run over Stonesdale Moor to the Tan Hill Inn.

After everybody had lunched and we had given out certificates, stickers and raffle prizes we gathered outside the pub to scatter Sarah's ashes on the Pennine Way.  A champagne toast was a fitting end to a great day even if tinged with a little sadness.

We must thank Jan the new landlady who did us proud, with log fires, a beautifully laid out barn, special menu and even candles on the tables! Also to thank are Dan Fletcher for designing this years certificates and stickers, Stuart Wilton for checking out the route and putting up all the way marking signs, Colin and Barbara Pearce for taking on the role of mulled wine makers and finally 2CV City for providing valuable financial assistance and breakdown support.

Raid Tan Hill has always been a completely free event but this year's run being dedicated to the late Sarah Monaghan we asked for donations to Cancer Research. As always the 2CVers responded magnificently with contributions to the tune of 175!

When those of us staying over on Sunday night got back home we found the event had made the front page of the Yorkshire Post, a first!

So it's over for another year but we will all be back in twelve months time for Raid Tan Hill 2015. Have a good Summer.
