Second Annual Rebelle Rally Checks into Lake Tahoe for 2017Posted in News on October 15, 2017
Thirty-six teams comprised of all women have descended on Lake Tahoe, California, at the Village at Squaw Valley. They are here to compete in the 2017 Rebelle Rally, the second-annual off-road rally event just for women.
The rally winds through the off-road trails of Nevada and California, ending eight days later in the Glamis Imperial Sand Dunes, in Imperial County, California. The competitors have their phones taken away and GPS devices sealed. Their communication with the outside world is totally cut off. They are given waypoints and are expected to plot their route via compass and map. They have a time limit to clear checkpoints along the course, scoring points for each crossing. The route is made trickier by elusive points sprinkled throughout, which can only be found by correctly plotting their locations on the map.
At the Village at Squaw Valley, the competitors went through a technical inspection as well as filled out required paperwork for the rally. Next up for the competitors is Rally School, where they will be given all rules and information for the event and a long drive on and off-road to the first base camp located in the Southern Nevada desert.
Check back in a few days as we follow along with the Rebelle teams on the road to Glamis.
