No Alibi Rally 2018

For 2018, No Alibi Rally is venturing where it has not ventured previously. Starting just north of Olympia at the Hawk’s Prairie Restaurant and Sports Bar (Marvin Road exit 111 off I-5), traveling via back roads to the Pacific Ocean, then to the banquet and overnight at the Red Lion in Kelso, and eventually finishing Sunday, back at the Hawk’s Prairie Restaurant and Sports Bar where it all began. You’ll see twisty roads, challenging hill climbs, beautiful scenery, exposures with views, and a whole lot more ‘green’ than on previous No Alibi Rallies. This year’s event will be a “No Wheat Zone”.
