Video: 372 tractors depart from Harrogate to Pateley Bridge for charity

///

The Knaresborough Young Farmers Tractor run set off from the Great Yorkshire Show ground this morning at 9am

It was last run in 2020, with 360 tractors, and this time they beat that, with 372 taking part.

Each year it raises money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, tractors contribute £20 a tractor plus £10 for any extra passenger.

There is still time to see them, see the map:

They will be in Pateley Bridge from around 12 until 1pm, before heading back via Greenhow and Ripley, finishing in Knaresborough for around 4pm.

  1. Appawling publicity for farming. Around 370 tractors conjesting up to 45 miles of road for 6 hours each burning say 27 litres of fuel makes an environmental disgrace. Support for charity is good but surely farmers can find a better way of doing this.

  2. Absolutely lovely to see the pride that our (often taken for granted) farmers have in what they do. Just brilliant!
