Summer Road Run

Plans have been finalised for the Harrow Car Club Social Road Run on Sunday 17th August 2014.


The Hunt


Our “Treasure Hunt” is an observational quiz, ie a pre-determined course punctuated with questions, the answers for which can be found in most cases, by looking out of the car window – what could be simpler!


The hunt is a circular route of approximately 60 miles, commencing and finishing at The Crows Nest, (on the A41) Tring. Initial RV is 10.00am, continuing until approximately 4.00pm with a lunch stop in the Buckingham area. The route has been chosen to provide everyone with an enjoyable drive, as well as meeting the needs of the hunt.


To anticipate a few likely questions…..


* You will have a course map with a complimentary set of written instructions – the map reading skills required are very elementary, no more sophisticated that those you would expect for a drive outing.

* Each question is independent of the others – you do not need to answer one in order to solve the next

* Whilst the route of the hunt traverses some fast A roads on occasions, all answers are located in areas which are conducive to slower driving with safety in mind

* There is no time(d) element to the hunt – IT IS NOT A RACE

* There is a very modest entrance fee of £10 per car payable on the day to cover the cost of prizes and free raffle entry.
