We are Allan and Chris Pilgrim (The Pilgrim’s), and we are proud to announce that we're taking part in The Mystery Box Rally in 2019!! This is the third Box Rally for Allan, whilst Chris is a rally virgin. The video on this page will give you an idea of what it's all about.
In 2019 Mystery Box Rally will depart Byron Bay, leaving August 17 and returning August 21.
Teams will drive their own 25+ year old cars along a mystery route in this unique 5 day challenge, all in the name of cancer research. The route is a 2,500 km loop starting and finishing at Byron Bay, but all the other details are kept under wraps, only given to the teams each morning.
The Box Rallies is one of the largest community lead fundraising events for the Cancer Council in Australia having raised over $17 million in the last 10 years. Part of the requirements for our participation is to raise a minimum of $3,500 but we hope to raise well above this amount.
The funds go to the Cancer Council and we are extremely proud to be doing our part to support such a worthy charity. They do some awesome work supporting people with cancer, and funding important research. Fundraising is the hard part, so any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.Please make sure to follow our progress via this page and the blog post below.

The rally is not a race – it’s a fun, colourful, unpredictable adventure with participants travelling at their own pace in smaller groups. Vehicles often break down but “we never leave anyone behind” and each night is spent camping beneath the stars and celebrating the day’s achievements. It all adds up to an incredible opportunity to see Australia’s vast and beautiful countryside and make lifelong friends, many brought together after experiencing cancer themselves or seeing cancer impact family and friends.
Since it’s inception the rally has been the largest fundraiser for the Cancer Council nationally."
