Please note the following info about vans:
Please try to stick to only minivans or 7-8 passenger SUVs. We have a few transition areas that are really small and cannot accommodate larger vehicles. We might give you a mildly disapproving look if we see you driving a 10-12 passenger vehicle. Fifteen passenger, church-style vans are entirely prohibited from transition 19 and are otherwise frowned upon. Motor homes and oversized limos are completely prohibited from the entire course.
We are pleased to again be working with Enterprise/National and Nextcar to supply vans for the American Odyssey Relay.

We are pleased to again be partnering with the Wyndham Gettysburg and Courtyard Gettysburg as our headquarters hotels for 2018. Wyndham and Courtyard are located right at the start of event. They are taking reservations now, so don’t delay!
Although a bit further from the start, the Bavarian Inn in historic Shepherdstown, WV, is also a good option. It’s located at Transition 24 and anyone who mentions the Odyssey when booking will get a 10% discount. Call for reservations: 304-876-2551. Please note that room rates are for 2 people per room. We appreciate the support of the Bavarian Inn – they are very busy during the relay. Please be courteous to the other guests, particularly if you are coming and going late at night or early morning. Also, please consider bringing extra towels. The Inn has a limited number of towels available for each room.
