For over three decades, the Yorkhill Easter Egg Run has taken place every Easter Sunday and it’s no different for 2016 – this year on Sunday the 27th March.

This iconic events gets bigger every year. Expect to see thousands of motorbikes. Expect dress up, dixie flags, trikes, scooters, big bikes, less big bikes and quite a few Easter bunnies. Expect lots of fun. And most of all, expect to have your heart warmed!

Check out the parade route below and take a wee trip out to see it. It starts at the Glasgow Green and will end at the new Glasgow Children’s Hospital site at Glasgow’s Southern General hospital where there will be stalls, food, entertainment and lots of fun!

How to register

There is no registration fee but we will ask every biker to make a suggested donation of £10 on arrival.

Please consider raising sponsorship rather than bringing Easter Eggs and chocolate as the hospital is always inundated with treats and many of our patients are on special diets or “nil by mouth” and can’t enjoy the eggs. Financial donations mean that we can provide specialised medical equipment and other resources essential for the care of the children at Yorkhill.

If you require sponsor forms, posters or any other fundraising materials, please call the fundraising team on 0141 201 6917 or email fundraising@yorkhill.org.

We can’t wait to see you all there, and costumes are welcomed and encouraged of course!

The Route

The route will begin at Greendyke St by Glasgow Green, for an 11am departure.

It will head along Clyde St and the Broomielaw before crossing the Squinty Bridge. It will then follow straight along Govan Road and end at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, or Southern General as we usually call it!

  1. No longer a West End event.
    Now starting at Glasgow Green, and going nowhere near the West End.
    This is now a South Side event.

    1. Apologies. I hadn’t updated since the info about the new route was released. Thanks for letting me know.
