Welcome to The 6th GREAT Ice Cream Run - another Tar Heel MINI Motoring Club adventure dedicated to MINI owners who love motoring AND ice cream!
Due to its popularity, we will be heading back to Bar Harbor. This year’s run is a 6-day long trip from June 11-16. It will take us from Staunton, VA to Hagerstown, MD to Corning, NY, Port Jervis, NY to Tewksbury, MA to Freeport, ME and end at Bar Harbor, ME. We will make stops at our favorite ice cream parlors and add some new ones along the way to our destination. In addition to the awesome motoring and daily ice cream stops, we will be visiting The Glass Museum @ Corning, NY and The FDR Presidential Library and Museum, Hyde Park, NY and sightseeing at some of Maine’s lighthouses. Do the entire run, or just join us for a day or two as we pass through your area. And for those of you who cannot get enough motoring, you will be able to join another awesome excursion with MINIs on Top to Mt. Washington, NH, June 16-17.
The event spans 6 days long from June 11-16. The route will take us from Staunton, VA to Hagerstown, MD to Corning, NY to Port Jervis, NY to Tewksbury, MA, to Freeport, ME and to our destination, Bar Harbor, ME. We will travel mostly on state roads or secondary roads. But on some sections, in order to save time, especially in the Northeast from New York to Maine, we will have to travel on interstate toll highways. So please purchase an E-ZPass transponder before the trip.
You can travel by yourself or with the group. It’s up to you. You can choose to do the entire run or just join us for a day or two as we pass through your area. Each day we will have a drivers' meeting before leaving the hotels. Please check the daily route plans for meeting times.
