About this event
This shortest distance rally is an untimed RoadRally following an undefined route. Instead of the usual route instructions and timing controls, contestants are given a map and a list of waypoints to be visited. Contestants receive penalty points for each 0.10 mile traversed during the rally. Thus, the goal is to visit all the required sites (waypoints) in the overall time allotted while traversing the shortest distance possible. These waypoints may be visited in any order of your choosing after leaving the start control and prior to your arrival at the finish control. Unlimited use of additional maps, GPS, Waze, etc. is permitted. The available roads are all public roads in and bordering Indiana County, PA. Typical fall foliage and scenery should be superb as you travel on many roads most of you will have never seen before. Each team (minimum of two people) will use their maps and waypoint list to plot a course and may drive at whatever legal speeds are comfortable for them. Six hours is allotted for completing the rally but it should take less time. Awards for best overall finishing position(s) and for best finishing position of any team that has no prior experience with a shortest distance rally.
