      Poker Runs of America

      Poker Runs

      Many experienced boaters and marine industry workers are aware of the term “Poker Run,” however, some of us have never heard of the them. We are here to explain to you one of the newest water sports in the game. 

      What are they?

      A Poker Run is an event where boat enthusiasts ride boats to multiple checkpoints to collect poker cards. In the meantime, it is time to show off your boats speed, aesthetic, and overall performance.  Some of the hottest, fastest, most exotic boats participate all over the United States to play a chance to win. Keep in mind these events are not a race and are judged by the boats best poker hand. 


      How it works.

      The Poker Runs start by each boat participating in navigating (speeding 75+mph) through a watercourse, stopping at five checkpoints along the way to pick up an envelope that has a single playing card enclosed. At the final checkpoint, the envelopes are opened and the boat with the best poker hand is prized the winner! You could say that winning is purely by chance!


      Poker runs usually require a fee to participate, however, some of them are funded by sponsors and are completely free to register. Prizes, such as money, trophies, etc. are donated by the sponsors of the event and are given to the crew that has the best poker hand. Poker run coordinators try and make the runs as scenic and appealing as possible between each check points. Events normally last 2-4 hours to complete.
