Welcome to Scumrun; the original banger ‘rally’ event travelling across Europe for five days of carnage, all in the name of charity. Scumrun has been established for over ten years and is professionally managed by a team of dedicated and experienced event experts.

The event’s prime objective is to raise as much money for CHUMS as possible. Scumrun is an internationally recognised brand with business partners around the world.

Over the years Scumrun’s participants have helped to raise funds in excess of £800,00 (so far) for UK children’s charities

Alongside the charity element there is, of course, a challenge associated with entering the event. Finding and purchasing a car to fit the entry criteria and making it sure it makes round. Each morning the route for the day is revealed to the team’s, suggested stops are given of historical sites, beauty spots etc so they also see parts of the country.

Event information…

The event starts on a Thursday morning and returns to the UK on a Monday evening. The launch party on the Thursday is the kickoff. Here the event and charity registration take place along with the all-important drivers’ briefing and various other entertainment. The route for the day will be revealed each morning.

  • Each team must have a minimum of 2 drivers, the maximum is the number of people you can safely fit into your chosen vehicle.
  • Each team pays £500 entry fee, unless you pick Scumrun unlimited which is £700. This covers the cost of accommodation, welcomes drinks in the evenings and safety administrative costs i.e. breathalyser tests.
  • Each team fundraising target is a minimum of £500 for the chosen charity. Teams are welcome to raise funds in whatever manner best suits them. Most teams set up a Just Giving or GoFundMe page, but some teams do use offline methods.
  • We strongly encourage fancy dress for both you and the car as this adds to the fun of the event and prizes will be given for best dressed car, best dressed team, best modified car, fundraising awards and the overall winner of Scumrun is ‘Spirit of Scumrun’
  • The cost of the ferry to the chosen country needs to be covered by the team directly
  • Please note that drivers for each day are breathalysed in the mornings to ensure that if they have drunken the night before you are safe to take part in the rally that day.
