The Long Road is still moving in an important new direction for the second year. Volunteers have completely taken over the control, planning and execution of the run. This is the same direction the Stampede took years ago when Charlie stepped up and took over the Stampede and the Stampede is very much alive and prospering.
I have handed over the reins to a two-time Long Road veteran, Uncle Ben, and his committee (all members of the Legion of the Long Road). These brave souls are doing this completely independently and as volunteers to keep this run alive.
I passed on my vision of what I think the Long Road should be and as much advice as I could (from the mistakes I made running it, lol). The rest of the details will have to be gleaned from Uncle Ben and I am attaching information below that he provided on the 2014 Long Road when it becomes available.
The Legion of the Long Road will continue but it is a little harder to get into now. Not everyone that completes the LR will receive the serial numbered medallion that indicates inclusion in the Legion of the Long Road.

Uncle Ben (and the committee) and Charlie with the Stampede will recommend individuals to receive that coveted award. The medallion will never be given to someone that has not completed the Long Road or Stampeded. However, in addition to the ride we are looking for men and women that support and promote our crazy sub culture.
Enjoy the wild ride.
