Fans of rivalry combined with fun can prove themselves in the competition organized by Camping Nad Lipnem. This is a race in which you can only hitchhike and on foot.

The love of traveling can manifest itself in many ways. Some people sit comfortably in the plane, and in a short time find themselves in a luxurious hotel. Others prefer bus trips, others pack their families into the car and set off. There is also a large group of people who like to explore the world by hitchhiking. This style of traveling requires courage and great openness - each day you get to know other people and experience completely different situations.

Adventurers will surely be interested in the race organized by Camping "Nad Lipnem" in Stęszewo near Poznań . The prize is a free stay at the campsite.

Hitchhiker race - rules

There are a few simple rules for the competition. It starts on June 27 at 15:00 and ends 9 hours later at 00:00. Participants start from anywhere in Poland. An acceptable means of transportation is hitchhiking and your own legs. 2-person teams from all over the country can take part in the race. The main limitation is age - participants can be adults, not older than 30 years. This is due to the fact that the race ends the school year and begins the holiday period.

The winners of the race will be 32 people (16 teams - 1 from each province) who will reach their destination in the shortest time and present the organizers with a card documenting their hitchhiking trip. As mentioned above, the reward is a free stay at the campsite from June 27-29 .

There will also be prizes for the best dressed teams - 3 places.
