Frequently Asked Questions....


   Q:  What is a Poker Run?
Well, for starters, it's a great excuse to ride your motorcycle and help charities at the same time!  

In the classic game of poker, each player is dealt five cards.  The person with the best hand wins.  Couple this with a motorcycle ride and you have a genuine Poker Run! 

When you check in at the HONOUR RIDE event, you will receive your route map, a score sheet and your FIRST Poker Card draw.  Along the route, you will stop at the Poker Stop Checkpoints to select another card and meet our enthusiastic volunteers. Your cards will be marked on your score sheet. When you return to the event site, you will select your final card.   Your five cards will determine YOUR POKER HAND.  

There are prizes for the Poker Run so make sure you are present at the event site for the announcements of PRIZE WINNERS!
