Tractors on the Road Run
It is hoped that the road runs will be possible on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Advice will be available on the Showground during the afternoon of both days in view of potential adverse ground conditions, traffic congestion etc. It may be necessary to limit the number of vehicles in view of the number of participants and the limited parking available on the Great Orme and in Conwy.
Both runs start from the Showground at about 6:00pm.

Due to the ROAD CLOSURE at Llandudno Junction, the
CONWY road run will not take place on Saturday as normal.
The GREAT ORME road run will take place on Sunday, weather permitting.
The Saturday road-run will be re-routed due to major road works in Llandudno Junction preventing free access to Conwy. A new route is in planning and will be advised as soon as possible. Great Orme Tramway
A road run ascending to the summit of the Great Orme is no longer possible
due to the size of the present entry.
The Sunday road run takes a turn around the Marine Drive on the lower part of the Great Orme. This road is quite a challenge, and rises to 400 feet at the Rest and Be Thankful Café. The run is open to all classic vehicles except double-decker buses due to the overhanging cliffs into which the road is cut in places. Please note that the road is not normally open to heavy vehicles and this opening is a special feature for the Festival.
