FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the World Record Poker Run 2021?
This Poker Run is like any normal motorcycle poker run. The rider will “pull” five cards to make a full hand in hopes to have the “highest” poker hand and WIN. Each card is drawn at a different stop.
BUT this Poker Run is different because we will be setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD in two ways.
#1 – Distance: We will travel over 3,200 miles from Southwest Florida to Sturgis, South Dakota from July 30th to August 6th. Each “card pull” will be in a different state.
#2 – Number of Riders: We would like to invite as many riders as possible to set this record. It will be a “once in a life time” ride. Come join us.
How many days and nights will we be on the road?
Technically 8 days 7 nights. The ride starts the morning of Friday, July 30th with the first card pull and ends Friday, August 6th in Sturgis with the last card pull. The Kickoff Party is Thursday evening July 29th, where everyone is invited but attendance is optional.
How many miles is the ride?
The exact mileage will depend on the route which could be altered before or during the trip.

Two Types of Moto Meetups

#2 Meet & Greets: These stops are optional and you are not required to attend.

Do you have to make the full ride to be part of the World Record?

Just remember the “card pull” area at a stop is only open for a specific window of time. You have to pull a card and have it recorded before the “card pull” area closes. All this information will be included in the Official Riders packet.

Yes, you can travel at your own pace just as long as you are at each poker “card pull” stop at specified times.
