More than 1000 bikes and 1300 riders roared through Dalhart as part of the Five State Run. The annual event was sponsored by The Iron Thunder Motorcycle Club in Guymon, Oklahoma. The first of the 1000 participants made their appearance around 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 11.
Dalhart was the second stop in the route which included Texhoma, Clayton, Kenton, Oklahoma, the Colorado State Line and Elkhart, Kansas with the motorcyclists finishing the 300 mile ride at their point of origin, Guymon. The “Poker Run” began in 2003 to benefit the Guymon fire Department. The ride has increased in participants each year, and Motorcycle Club donates the proceeds to various people and organizations.
