During these challenging times, we've had to make the difficult decision to postpone our annual Easter Egg Run until later in the year due to the Coronavirus crisis.
We'll miss seeing our incredible community of bikers in their Easter costumes, but hope that we can set a new date for an alternative parade in due course in partnership with the committee, the council and the police.
Many fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled, but our NHS heroes at the hospital are continuing to work around the clock to care for the boys and girls in the hospital - and they need you more than ever.
If you were hoping to attend the Easter Egg Run, and if you can, please show your support by donating the £10 suggested entry fee to our urgent COVID-19 appeal.
For more than four decades, thousands of families have enjoyed this incredible event where hundreds of bikers ride through the streets of Glasgow in a mile long convoy of colour, noise and smiles in support of our young patients.
If you're a motorcycle enthusiast then we'd love for you to join us for this special event. No bike? Join us at the Royal Hospital for Children from 11am and welcome the parade as they approach the finish point where we'll have a family fun day.
There is no registration fee but we ask every biker to make a suggested donation of £10 on arrival to support our young patients at the hospital.
Fundraise at our Easter Egg Run
If you'd like to take part in this year's Easter Egg Run, please consider raising sponsorship rather than bringing chocolate Easter Eggs. As many of our patients are on special diets or are "nil by mouth", they are unable to enjoy confectionary gifts.
An easy way to fundraise is by setting up a Facebook Fundraiser and asking all your friends and family to sponsor you for taking part!
Financial donations mean that we can continue to funding state-of-the-art medical equipment, family support services and innovative play programmes to give young patients the extra special care they deserve.
For this year's event, no access will be permitted within the park at Glasgow Green or the West Carriageway as per previous years. To ensure that the event runs safely, we kindly ask all bikers to ensure that they begin queuing from the top of Greendyke Street as per the map below, and do not enter the park at any point.
- Bikers to meet at the top of Greendyke Street from 10am
- Parade leaves at 11am
- On leaving Greendyke Street the route takes in the Broomielaw before crossing the Squinty Bridge and heading up Govan Road towards the hospital. The parade will pass the front of the hospital before finishing at the Royal Hospital for Children.
*Please note route is subject to change and will be confirmed closer to the event date.
