No license is required to race!

2013 Ridgeline Rampage Main Venue

Your race entry fee includes a well marked course, friendly staff, event T-shirt, timing and scoring, frothy refreshments, medical support, fully stocked Aid Station, awards party and prizes throughout the field. Endurance competitors get extra suffering and love with a post race meal, athlete goody bag and more hugs.

The RME Junior League continues with racing and specific age categories for Juniors 11-18.  Distances vary between age groups.  Juniors 15-18= 20 miles, Juniors 13-14=10 miles, Juniors 11-12=5 miles.  If a strong Junior wants to race farther than their designated age group distance, they may “race up in age” and compete in the longer  race in the age group above them.  Check out the Race Crew page to see how Juniors or Seniors can work off their entry fee on the Race Crew.

Series Rankings will be maintained in each discipline for the two longer distances – Endurance and XC.  Teams Rankings in the Biking Discipline will also be compiled. (see team page for details) Finishers in the top twenty in each category  receive rankings points from each race  (100, 95, 90…. 15, 10, 5).  Track the standings on our race results page throughout the season. Join past champions and emerging competitors to compete for the title of RME’s overall series winner!
