The sixth running of the CT British Reliability Run in aid of the Hole In The Wall Gang Camp will head towards New York’s Finger Lakes Region on September 15th to 17th. The run has something of a motorsports theme this year. The CT British Reliability Run was launched in 2018 after I had taken part in the New Hampshire version of this event in 2017. The event has become an established part of the calendar and has raised a useful amount of money for the Hole In The Wall Gang Camp over the past five years. This group continues to be the charity we support with this event as part of the overall “Driving for Kids” philosophy of Reliability Runs in the US.
This year’s run returns to the Finger Lake region of New York which was the destination of the 2019 Run. The hotel is once again the Hope Lake Lodge, which provided excellent accommodation for us four years ago. This year there is a motorsports theme to the event. The outbound route on Friday will follow part of the route of a pioneering rally in 1903 which went from New Jersey to Pittsburg. We’ll follow much of the route they took on day 2 of that event, though of course the roads are a lot better now than they were in 1903. On Saturday we will visit Watkins Glen where those who wish will be able to drive on the present day racetrack (see https://www.theglen.com/drive-the-glen/ for details) as well as tour the original route which is all on public roads. If you are interested in this event and think you and your car are up to it, or have questions please email me at email@example.com. We have a few hotel rooms remaining at an excellent group rate if you want to join in the fun.
