THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST BICYCLE RACE
For 36 years Race Across America has been challenging ultracyclists from around the globe to push their physical and mental limits to the farthest reaches. Starting in Oceanside, under one of the longest piers in California, RAAM spans 3000 miles, climbs 175,000 feet, crosses 12 states and finishes at City Dock in Annapolis, Maryland, the east coast sailing mecca. The route travels west to east, traversing three major mountain ranges and crossing four of America’s longest rivers and the Great Plains.
Open to amateur and professional racers in solo, 2-, 4- and 8-person relay teams, there is no other race in the world comparable to RAAM. The Race has become a global icon, having had over 35 countries represented. Not only has RAAM proved to be one of the most challenging races in the world, but has become a huge platform for racers to raise awareness and money for charities of their choice. Racers have raised over $2 million per year over the past 5 years.
World Wide Technology is proud to have a team participating in this year’s Race Across America with support from our partners, Cisco and F5. Follow along with our riders as they trek 3,000 miles across the country and raise money for Pedal the Cause.
