Poker Run Details:

Not a poker player? Never fear! All you need to participate in the Autumn Classic Poker Run is a sense of adventure and a willingness to explore one of Colorado’s scenic byways.

You will pick up your Poker Run Score Card and Map at the Telluride Airport starting at 8:30am on Saturday morning. You will visit each of the predetermined 5 designated ”Dealer” locations and draw one card from the Festival “Dealer” at each location. Each “Dealer” will mark your scorecard with the card you have drawn at each location. You will need to pay attention to each location’s ‘card availability time’ as it is different for each location. You’ll have plenty of time to get to the 5 locations in the time allotted, so no speeding!…just make sure to return to the Telluride Airport and draw your final card before the cutoff time, 3:30 pm.

3:45pm: Winner announced at the Autumn Classic Road Rally tent at the Telluride Airport.
