Race Across America requires focused training, perseverence and dedication. It costs approximately $15,000 to fund all of the logistics for a solo rider. Please help us bring awareness to the Challenged Althlete's Fountation and be a part of Seana Hogan's epic 2017 race.
The Race Across America (RAAM) is a nonstop bicycle race beginning in Oceanside, CA and ending in Annapolis, MD. Racers traverse nearly 3100 miles across the United States, enduring desert heat, mountainous altitude and midwestern humidity. Simply finishing this race marks a major accomplishment.
Currently the overall women's Transcontinental Record holder (set in 1995: 9 Days, 4 hours and 2 minutes), last year, Seana Hogan broke the women's 50+ Transcontinental Record with a time of 12 days, 13 hours and 25 minutes. She told herself back in 1995 that she would come back in her fifties and set the age group record. In 2017 she hopes to better her 50+ record with renewed confidence after last year's success.
"I really like the idea of inspiring people to test their limits. I shoot for the stars and hope I come back with a planet or a moon. Sometimes I miss all together. Not to be discouraged, I will always keep trying, I will always shoot for the stars as long as I am able!" Click on the NEWS tab above for previous stories.
