Frequently Asked Questions

The Rubber City Road Rally isn't just about who finishes's a road course, scavenger hunt, trivia contest, dinner, socializing and lots of FUN!


What is a Road Rally?

It is a predetermined road course along Summit County byways with a "scavenger hunt" thrown in to make the route more interesting and challenging.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone who can drive, listen to their navigator and is 21 years or older. A driver and navigator are necessary, although additional passengers are welcome and add to the fun. Warning: Choose your navigator wisely. If you are thinking of selecting your spouse, you may want to think again. SCHS is not responsible for any spats that may erupt during and after the road rally course. If there are four or more of you attending, consider breaking up into teams. (Wives against husbands, maybe?)

Do I Need a Special Car to Drive in the Road Rally?

NO. Your 1978 wood-paneled Chrysler station wagon will work just fine. If you happen to have a classic car, the rally is a fun way to take it for a spin through the countryside.

What are the Rules?

Rules and rally packets will be given to the participants at the designated starting line the day of the rally. Please note: This is Not a race and speed is not the determining factor to win. Timing, number of miles driven and answering questions correctly along the way determine the winner. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes are awarded.

Do I Need to Participate in the Road Rally Course to Attend the Dinner?

No you do not. You can still attend the event without traveling the road rally course.

Who does this Rally Benefit?

The Summit County Historical Society of Akron, Ohio, a non-profit organization since 1924.
