For 14 years, RAW has attracted ultracyclists from around the globe to take on the finest terrain the western USA has to offer. Starting in Oceanside, CA and following the first 930 miles of the RAAM route, winding your way through four states, ending up in the cycling mecca of Durango, CO at Santa Rita Park.

Traveling west to east from the sandy beaches of Oceanside, over the Sierra Mountains and into the scorching Mojave and Sonoran deserts and eventually ending up on the Animas River nestled in the Rocky Mountain town of Durango. The route offers the best of the wild west!

Open to all cyclists wishing to race solo, 2- or 4-person teams.  RAW is one of the longest and most challenging of the domestic RAAM qualifying races and is a sizable challenge in its own right. It is quickly becoming a global race, having had over 10 countries represented.

If you are in the Durango area and want to come see some finishers (and also some RAAM competitors passing through) the dates are below. They also are in search of volunteers to be finish line hosts, be sure to check their website for that information.
