Patterned after Italy’s famed Mille Miglia open-road endurance race, central Pennsylvania's Mille for MS fundraiser is set to showcase some of the world's finest classic and modern sports cars.
This year’s Mille for MS offers two rally options — the Mille for MS and the MS Road Rally/Scavenger Hunt.
Mille for MS The Mille for MS is in the same format as previous years. The Mille is a countryside rally (fun run) through approximately 125 miles of beautiful back roads in central Pennsylvania. The Mille is open to vintage import sports cars, American muscle and other exotic sports cars. It will be timed, with prizes awarded for first, second and third place.
MS Road Rally/Scavenger Hunt The MS Road Rally/Scavenger Hunt, new for this year, is also a timed road rally, open to all makes and models of cars. This event has a scavenger hunt overlay covering approximately 225 miles. You must navigate your own way to the points of interest throughout central Pennsylvania.

After the Italian Grand Prix was moved from the Italian city of Brescia to a circuit in Monza in 1922, many of the people of Brescia were left feeling insulted. In 1927, as a response to their hometown’s loss, Aymo Maggi and Franco Mazzotti established what became known as the Mille Miglia. The race, which grew to be wildly popular, ran from Brescia to Rome and back – a course spanning 1600 km – and featured some of the most unique sports cars ever produced, including the BMW, Ferrari, and Porsche. The event took place 24 times until it was banned in 1957.
Founded in 1946, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds cutting-edge research, drives advocacy, and assists with the implementation of professional education programs in an effort to prevent, treat and cure multiple sclerosis, a disease that affects over two million people worldwide. With chapters in 50 states and a membership of passionate, devoted individuals, the Society continues to grow and actively seeks new and better ways to bring about a world free of MS.
