Get YOUR Kicks - On the Route 66 Challenge!

The Route 66 Challenge is a fun and unique way to explore the Mother Road, spend some time with family and or friends, or just enjoy cruising in a scenic area. It is not a road race, it is actually a game of strategy where the 33 miles of Route 66 in Pulaski County are used as the actual game board for the competition. The challenge starts as teams receive adventure envelopes with a clue or piece of trivia that will lead to a location. That location will then lead them to further instructions, directions, or challenges for points. There will also be mini adventures call detours that offer the opportunity to earn extra points, but they may just be a distraction - it’s up to you whether to take the chance. If you like an adventure and a challenge and love getting out on the open road, we think you would love to participate in the Route 66 Challenge this weekend. There are still 2 team spots available! There are even incentives and discount for shopping local while you are on the challen
