The Fun Run is a moving classic c https://www.mohavemuseum.org/az-route-66-museum.htmlar show that starts in Seligman on Saturday morning and breaks for the day in Kingman with a classic car display on the streets of old town Kingman. Then the second leg leaves on Sunday morning from Kingman and ends up in Topock (which is south at the California border near Hwy 40) for the awards presentation.
