RoadRUNNER Submission Guidelines

- Submit two copies of your draft: one printed (double-spaced) and the other digitally in MS Word format (or MS Word compatible) filed on the photo CD or DVD.
- Include a GPX file (preferred) or Google Map Link of your tour. Printed maps clearly highlighting your route are also acceptable. Keep in mind, we can only use GPX files compatible with Garmin MapSource.
- Rate your ride, on a scale of 1 to 5, (1 being the least, 5 being the best) along with a brief description (10-15 words max) of rating, for the following categories: Scenery, Historical, Traffic, Curves, Road Conditions
- Be descriptive! We want to know about things unique to the area that make this trip special.
- Give us a good sense of the ride. How did you feel? What were the roads like?
