The Run is open to all licensed riders and drivers of all licensed and road-legal vehicles, as well as of-age registered passengers. Entry donations are $20 per rider/driver and $10 per registered passenger. Extra scorecards may be purchased as well as raffle tickets for other items and 50/50 drawings. Attractive prizes will be awarded to Win, Place and Show hands. The Run route is approximately 100 miles and takes about 2.25 hrs to complete, not including checkpoint stops. Registration starts about 9a and ends at 11a on the 17th. Discounted dining is available at the nearby Augies Restaurant.
