2017 sees the 15th anniversary of the Beadlam Charity Tractor Run.  This event came from humble beginnings in 2003 with 35 tractors - an event which was planned by Bernard Simpson from Beadlam together with his team of willing helpers as a “one-off” to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.  This first run raised £1700 and the event was then scheduled for the second year which saw the funds more than doubling!  And on it went, growing in popularity to become firmly established as one of the biggest annual tractor runs in the country.

As the 15th run approaches, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is still the chosen charity and to date has benefited from a fantastic total of £92,686.85.   Now over 200 tractor drivers regularly come from far and wide to enjoy this feast of rural entertainment completing a 50 mile round trip including some off-road highlights and a hearty lunch.

For the first time in the history of this event a target has been set and it would be such an achievement if this year’s run could push the grand total to £100,000 and help such a worthwhile local charity.

This year’s run is on 30th April starting, as usual, from Beadlam Grange Farm.  For further information please visit or contact Malcolm Simpson on 01751 432645 or alternatively please email
