The HRH is a 100 mile long trek along the forgotten 2 lane highways. Approx. every 20 miles we will have a stop to draw a card and regroup. The run ends at a nice place to hang out and picnic with your family. This is a family friendly event, so all are welcome. Plan on spending the day in the park. There are tons of things to do and this is a no pressure event. Drive your hot rod or custom out and enjoy hanging out with other gear heads . Here’s a little secret…..we are also starting a run in North Texas on the same day that will also end at the same place. This will give you a chance to see some cars that don’t normally attend Oklahoma events. This is gonna be epic. Don’t want to drive your precious hot rod or custom that far? Maybe this event isn’t for you. This event embraces road chips and bug guts as a badge of honor. Go a hundred or go home……….. So what does $25 bucks get you? $25 bucks won’t buy much these days, but we are trying to get you the most for your money, while still raising money for a worthy cause. If you pre-register you get a t-shirt, 1 poker hand and a badge of honor, if you finish the 100 mile trek. You can enter the day of the run, but no t-shirts will be available. We are donating all of our proceeds to Hope Farms. Check them out at www.hopefarminc.org. We will be giving out door prizes throughout the day, along with a 50/50 pot and we will give our portion to the Hope Farms charity.
