...but, we were running trail & throwing folk up 'sub-zero' trackless hills before it was popular...

... sometimes have a bitterly cold wind... sometimes a blizzard...and always fun, as 'all r̶o̶a̶d̶s trails lead to buy valtrex online uk Rhodes'

Ford Ranger Snow 2457

It's what everyone coming to the Rhodes Run hopes for, snow!

Fun, if a bit tricky, for running, but potentially nerve wracking for driving.

Arrive Alive prepared a very useful note on guidelines for winter driving, and driving on snow and ice.

Recommended reading if you are visiting Rhodes this winter. Read article here.

Route to Rhodes

RoadtoRhodes 0352

If this is your first time travelling to the district we suggest that you make use of a 'traditional' paper map when planning your route. In recent years GPS systems have taken first-timers on rather adventurous routes, not always ending up in Rhodes.

Those unable to stay in Rhodes must please note that high speed travelling is not possible on the dirt roads, and need to give themselves adequate time to reach the levitra online canada no prescription start.

RoadtoRhodes 681


The road is rather 'bumpy' in places. Local farmers take umbrage if a motorist hits one of their sheep, even if it is hidden in a corrugation!

Petrol & diesel are not available in Rhodes. You are advised to fill up your vehicles' fuel tank before starting your last leg to Rhodes.
