America’s British Reliability Run, a three-day rally in classic British cars for charity, rides again! The dates are October 16th to 18th. In 2013, twelve teams from all various marque clubs and all over the region ran a 750 mile route through Pennsylvania and raised over $9,000 for the Children’s Specialized Hospital in NJ.
This year, at least twenty-seven ABRR teams will be driving through some of Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey’s most scenic roadways at a time when fall color should be near its peak. The Run will begin in Quakertown, PA with its terminus in Milford, NJ. We will have dinner Friday night at the iconic Seneca Lodge, in Watkins Glen, NY. We will have a presentation by Bill Green, the historian for the Watkins Glen race track and International Motor Racing Research Center. After a ceremonial drive around the old Watkins Glen street circuit, we will be off to Norwich, NY, and the Northeast Classic Car Museum, and the Lotus Shack in Chester NY. We will end the drive at an original British pub in Milford, NJ, the “Ship Inn”, for a celebration Luncheon where awards will be presented to the ABRR teams.
The partner charity for this year’s Run will be St. Christopher’s Foundation in support of the C.O.R.E Palliative Care Team at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in north Philadelphia.
As before, participating teams will raise funds for the partner charity “walkathon style” by collecting pledges from their friends and relatives with the goal of raising $500 each. This number is, of course, a goal, not a requirement. Anything the teams can bring in is appreciated. As always, the teams pay all of their own expenses, so 100% of the pledged monies go directly to the partner charity.
More information, including registration forms and flyers to aid the teams in their fund raising is on our web site at www.BritishReliability.org.
