American British Reliability Run 2021 Logo

2021 American British Reliability Run – PA Edition

The ABRR is based on UK Reliability Runs that benefit children’s charities in England. Begun in 2002 by Blake Discher of Detroit with help from John Macartney (In the Shadow of My Father, Turn Left at the Pacific), America’s British Reliability Run is a challenging, but fun, driving event that so far has raised more than $300,000 for worthy children’s charities. Carried on by the Delaware Valley Triumph Club of PA since 2008, the ABRR spirit is now spreading throughout the USA with multiple regional runs. The ABRR is not a race. The run is conducted on public roads at posted speeds. It is not a road rally either, as there are no checkpoints or deliberately vague and misleading instructions. The ABRR Teams travel in groups, taking care to keep the cars together, making group stops as necessary. The ABRR is a […]
