the stilton cheese classic vehicle run
Enter for the drive for the company now
In recent years the run has begun in Uppingham, a market town in Rutland that was on the original delivery route. We now also suggest slight detours along the Welland Valley either to Barrowden and Wakerley Woods or a slightly longer run to Rockingham near Corby before rejoining the original route at Harringworth. If you have the time you could even enjoy both detours.
The direct route from Uppingham to Stilton along with the two alternative routes can be viewed below. To view these routes full screen, simply press play and then the full screen icon in the top right hand corner (next to the menu).
Alternatively you can view all three routes on the same map by clicking here, where you can switch between the different route directions as well turning routes on/off using the key below the map.
Directions are available as a downloadable pdf here.
They can also be accessed through the online maps by hovering the mouse over the menu icon in the top right hand corner and selecting directions. Step by step directions will then appear in a column down the left hand side of the map with the option to print.
Please note, if relying on the directions downloaded through the plotaroute online maps, these directions have not been uploaded or checked by the event organisers.
