Watching Finish of Race Across America (RAAM) in Annapolis!?
POSTED: 6/14/12 9:23 AM

The cycling Race Across America (RAAM) is underway! It's an insane 3,000-mile 12-day long race from San Diego to Annapolis. Unlike in the Tour de France, the clock runs non-stop in RAAM (similar to the format of the famous Alaskan Iditarod dog sled race). You can track it here:

I'm thinking about stopping at the City Dock in Annapolis next Friday evening to see RAAM finish... it will be a good pit-stop on my drive to Philly for the sprint tri the following morning. Has anyone watched the finish before? Very few people are bold/crazy enough to race RAAM... what is the finish like?

-Luke

Luke - you certainly don't have to look very far in the club to get those answers. See the RAAM Record Books ("Team 4-Person - Mixed")!

Yeah, Patrick told me about that record at ITU San Diego! Very cool!

I am SUPER excited about RAAM and have been helping one of the teams that starts on Saturday. They'll most likely be done by the time I get to Annapolis, but I definitely plan on tracking the race.

Is anyone planning to head up to Annapolis to see the finish of the Race Across America (RAAM) this year!? The riders should be finishing at the City Dock in a few days!

Hey Luke. The finish is super cool. Adam and I went in 2012 to watch the top solo male come in. Wow, would do it again if I was around this weekend. Let us know if you have questions.
