ANNUAL PICKENS ATV POKER RUN

THE 12th PICKENS ATV SPRING POKER RUN

MAY 6, 2017

DUE TO THE SNOWSTORM IN APRIL 2016 (OUR NORMAL POKER RUN DATE), WE HAVE DECIDED TO CHANGE OUR DATE IN ORDER TO TRY TO KEEP AWAY FROM CHANCES OF SNOW.

 This poker run is approximately 35 miles long, through the beautiful backwoods of the "Haven in the Hardwoods". The run has a variety of trails (main road, dirt trails, mud holes, small creeks, etc.) which makes this poker run fun for the old and young! The event helps fund the upkeep of the special little community of Pickens, WV. Cost is $10.00 per person (whether you are playing the Poker game or not). You can buy additional poker hands for $5.00 each.

PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE UPDATED INFO AS TIME GETS CLOSER

     NO DRINKING WHILE OPERATING YOUR ATV 

     AS ALWAYS, POLICE MAY BE MAKING ROUTINE VISITS THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND

We have over 1,000 riders each year and it is extremely important that everyone respect other riders. Depending on the weather, the ride can be dusty, muddy, and cold so please dress prepared for the elements. This will be a rain or shine event.  Anyone caught destroying the camping area or areas off of the designated trail with their ATVs will be asked to leave immediately.  Some of those areas are privately owned and in order to be able to have this event each year we have to respect those landowners. Make sure to look at the links below for more details. This is a family event and there are various ages who attend so please be respectful.

   If you have never been to our little town, please check out the link titled VISITOR INFO on our home page. THIS IS INFO YOU DEFINITELY NEED TO KNOW BEFORE COMING TO OUR EVENT. PLEASE CHECK OUT RULES FOR ALL RIDERS AT LINK ON BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.


The photo gallery will give you an idea of the fun and will be updated soon!

Food will be available to purchase from food vendors.  Breakfast will also be served by our local organizations, so come hungry and plan to spend the entire day.

Camping area is available on a first come first serve basis and this is a limited space which fills up quickly beginning on friday morning.  Keep in mind this area has none of the following: electric, water hookup, sewer waste disposal, & shower facilities. Porta potties will be available nearby. .  

If you have attended previous ATV Pickens Poker Run events, you are probably aware of the long line at registration. Again this year we are attempting to try to cut those lines down by putting the Registration / Waiver Online (make sure you wait until this form is updated before printing off).  This way the participant can print out the form from their home computer, fill out the registration form, and bring it with them to the registration the day of the poker run and there is no long line waiting to fill out the paperwork.
