The first Eastbourne Running Day took place in July 2006.  It was organised jointly by Steven Wood of Country Bus Rallies and Clive Wilkin of the Eastbourne Regent Preservation Group.  

Since then the event has been held  annually as part of the Country Bus  Rallies programme of events, with the exception of 2016 when uncertainty of when roadworks at the station would be carried out led to the early cancellation of the event.  The rally aims to recreate the local services that operated from Eastbourne in the 1950’s and 60’s using vehicles from that era. This includes Southdown and Maidstone & District  as well as Eastbourne Corporation buses.

The 2015 event was organised by Steven Wood with support from the team at Country Bus Rallies. A full report is included on the link below. The photo gallery is also available.
