MORE DETAILS TO COME!
June 19, 2021 RAAM (Ride Across America) begins. Our friend, Rashaan Bahati will join his teammates for this awesome race.
For 38 years, Race Across America (RAAM) has been challenging ultra cyclists 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 over 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 (Sierra, Rocky and Appalachian), crosses four of America’s longest rivers (Colorado, Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio) and the Great Plains. Also, passing through such iconic American landmarks as the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts, Monument Valley, Great Plains, and Gettysburg.
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.
Becoming an official RAAM finisher means claiming ultra-racing’s most coveted jersey and medal…and, for the lucky few that win their race division, the prized USA plaque…and being among the elite family who call themselves RAAM Finishers. RAAM will always sit at the pinnacle of ultra-racing accomplishments…don’t miss your opportunity to race to the top!
Some of us will go to Oceanside on June 19th to see the team off.
Team Thin Energy/Bahati Foundation goal is to raise 50 thousand dollars and donors can donate any amount of money per mile and get active on social media by posting #rideraam #ridefornewbankacount #teamtebfraam to say what needs to be said. Say it loud ‘financial literacy for our youth.’
