The Run takes place on the first Sunday of every November and commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14th November 1896, which celebrated the passing into law of the Locomotives on the Highway Act. This law raised the speed limit for 'light locomotives' from 4mph to 14mph and abolished the requirement for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot. The Locomotive Act was still widely known as the 'Red Flag Act', and a red flag was symbolically destroyed at the start of the Emancipation Run, as it is today in Hyde Park. In 2015 it is the 119th anniversary of the very first Run. Today it represents a rare opportunity for participants to take their extraordinary automobiles on this historic 60-mile journey from Hyde Park in central London to the seafront in Brighton.
