The Key West ANNUAL POKER RUN is right around the corner!! What started with 46 riders has grown to become South Florida’s biggest motorcycle party weekend of the year!!
More than 10,000 riders from all over the U.S. are set to travel one of America’s most scenic highways and take part in various fun-filled events September 18th through September 21st in the 42nd Annual Key West Poker Run. Starting at 8am on Thursday, participants leave Miami and traverse down the Overseas Highway to Key West, stopping at 5 designated points along the way to draw cards. Bikers meander through dozens of tiny islands & cross a total of 42 bridges overlooking pristine, turqoise waters providing breathtaking views of open sea and sky. Once arriving at the final stop in Key West, the winner is announced as the lucky guy – or gal – who draws the best hand. In addition, players battle for cash prizes, commemorative plaques, and entrants who draw the 10 best poker hands during their journey are eligible to play in a winner-take-all round of Texas Hold ‘Em, competing for a grand prize of a new Harley-Davidson 500 Street!!
Other event highlights include contests & giveaways, pool parties, an epic beach party, and a huge bike show spanning over an 8-block closed section of Duval Street mirroring a mini-Mardi Gras with its festival atmosphere, live music, food, and cold beer! Bike aficionados also can browse & buy merchandise including motorcycle accessories, apparel, mementos, & gifts from an array of vendors set up throughout the island.
