The Fun Run®is not a timed race, but a 140 mile pleasure cruise of classic and custom vehicles that traverse the Mother Road from Seligman, AZ to Topock/Golden Shores, AZ.
Things get underway Friday, May 3 in Seligman with participant registration, live music, entertainment and an impromptu parade through town.
For those driving into Kingman on Friday, participants register at the Kingman Powerhouse and can enjoy a drive-in movie showing of American Graffiti at the Staples Plaza, Downtown Kingman’s First Friday of the Month, Sand Drags and Mud Bogs at the Route 66 Motorsports Park, or Kingman Family Fun Festival featuring BMX races at the Mohave County Fairgrounds.
The first leg of the journey officially begins at 9am on Saturday, May 4 with a jaunt from Seligman to Downtown Kingman. The drive routes participants through the attractions and communities of Grand Canyon Caverns, Peach Springs, Truxton, Valentine, Keepers of the Wild, Hackberry and Valle Vista.
Upon arrival in Downtown Kingman, participants will line up their cars, trucks, motorcycles, trailers, buses and vans on Route 66 (Andy Devine Ave) and Beale Street for a show & shine viewing and judging. Here, participants and thousands of spectators enjoy vendors, entertainment, food and the museums in Kingman’s historic district all afternoon until 6pm. After the show & shine, participants can attend a live auction dinner at the Powerhouse or any one of the many other activities taking place in Kingman.
The second leg of the journey begins Sunday morning May 5. Departing from Kingman, participants head to Topock/Golden Shores for the final gathering and awards ceremony at 1pm. This scenic back-road winds passed Cool Springs, Gold Road, Sitgreave’s Pass and Oatman before heading down the backside of the Black Mountains for the shores of the Colorado River.
Registration for the event costs $50 per vehicle ($55 per vehicle after April 19). The fee includes T-shirt, dash plaque, commemorative license plate and entrance to the Kingman show-n-shine and Topock/Golden Shores award ceremony.
