Three racers are required to qualify for team awards. There are three divisions (Male, Female, and Co-Ed) that will each receive separate awards. A team can have as many members as you’d like! Teams are not required to finish together but are guaranteed to start the race in the same wave.

IS THE RAID TIMED?

Yep! All registration options (Standard and Base) include chip timing for each racer. The Chip Timing will be located on the racer bib and a shoe tag that will be provided at Packet Pickup. Additionally, the RAID does offer a Non-Competitive division for racers that can be selected in registration. This allows the racer to run untimed at your own pace!
