Despite its name, the Fun Run is not a timed race, but a 140-mile pleasure cruise of classic and custom vehicles that traverse the Mother Road from Seligman to Topock/Golden Shores, in Arizona. Roughly 800 vehicles of all descriptions and ages take part, and there are events and celebrations in almost every community along the way.
