If you’re anywhere near the East Coast, the annual Mid Atlantic Rally (MAR) should be on every Land Rover owner’s bucket list at least once. Hosted by the Rover Owners Association Virginia (ROAV) – the oldest Land Rover Club in North America, originally founded in Richmond, Virginia in the 1970s – MAR is open to all Land Rover and Range Rover owners.
This year’s even runs from September 29 through October 2 and will take place in Pembroke, Virginia (GPS coordinates 37°18’50.8″N 80°35’07.8″W). The rally has something for everybody and activities and trails for beginners with standard unmodified trucks through to advanced trails for heavily modified trucks.
Primitive camping is available onsite, with tents, campers, and trailers all allowed. Those that prefer a little luxury (or whose significant others do), hotel accommodations can be found nearby at Mountain Lake Hotel, which also happened to be the filming location for the movie Dirty Dancing .
Early Bird registration lasts through September 15th, 2016. This includes the reduced price of $100 and includes a free t-shirt. Registrations after September 15, 2016 will cost $120 and will not include a free t-shirt.
