Rebelle Rally ready to go

In a few days the third edition of the Rebelle Rally begins. The ladies will meet near Lake Tahoe, CA to cross the deserts of Nevada and California and then celebrate the end of the event in San Diego. Also this year we will be there to follow live the Rebelle Rally 2018.

OCTOBER 11-20 2018

 

The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States. Blending the love of driving with the ultimate challenge of precise navigation, the Rebelle tests your skills over 8 days of competition. It is not a race for speed, but a unique and demanding event based on the elements of headings, hidden checkpoints, time, and distance using maps, compass, and roadbook.

 

The Rebelle Rally covers more than 2,000 kilometers of stunning terrain across the Nevada and California desert. It is designed as a hybrid of serious competition and the ultimate road trip.   We like to think of it as the total package.  You will be surrounded by women who share your adventurous and competitive spirit as you drive and navigate your way to checkpoints across the American West.  And best of all, you get to leave your cell phone, computer, GPS, & headaches behind.  It’s all about YOU.  And your endless abilities.
