2018 Road Runner Rally

What is Road Rally?

The Road Runner Car Rally was started in 1972 by a group of South Windsor residents. Every year, it is held on the first Friday in June, starting from Corpus Christi Church (formerly St Gabriel’s Church) parking lot at 6:00pm. Each rally has a theme, which often times results in participants dressing in costumes. The rally is organized by volunteers and is non-profit.

Teams of contestants (up to as many people as you can legally fit into a car, often in minivans) are provided with a package of 9 puzzles, which must be solved sequentially. The rally starts when the teams are advised to open the first puzzle envelope. Inside is a puzzle (often a few copies to share amongst the team) which they must solve in order to find out their next destination. (If they are unable to solve it, they are provided with a separate “panic” envelope for each puzzle, which tells them their next destination, although they are penalized for opening the panic envelope.) The teams drive to the next location, look for a clue that indicates which side of the next puzzle envelope they must open. (Puzzle envelopes are turned in with completed puzzles for points). Once they find the clue and open the next envelope, they attempt to solve the puzzle. This continues until all 9 puzzles have been solved (or at least attempted) and all clues are found. The last puzzle details the location of the post-race dinner. When teams reach the final destination, their arrival time is recorded and they submit their envelopes containing their solutions to the puzzles. The solutions are marked and scores are tabulated.

Trophies are awarded to the first and second place finishes along with cash prizes.
