April 24, 2017 (Reno, Nevada) – With the overwhelming interest from women across the globe, the Rebelle Rally announced the International Cup for the 2017 edition of the event. Already, 6 international teams are confirmed, with several others actively working to participate.
“We are breaking down the borders and tearing down the walls. It is our way for the rally and US teams to show respect and appreciation for the efforts it takes to participate. From travel, language, customs, currencies, added costs, etc., we know it isn’t easy, but we want competitors to feel a warm welcome to the USA,” explained rally founder Emily Miller.
International teams will bear the special International designation on their vests. The highest scoring international team, comprised of two non-US entrants, will receive $2,500 to the non-profit organization of their choice in their team’s name, have their name live on the much-anticipated “Prize Cup,” and take home a special International Cup plaque.
An International team is defined as 2 teammates, non-US citizens or holding dual citizenship, and a valid non-US passport. A minimum one teammate must live full-time abroad.
Rally organizers are working to simplify the process of participation with two companies providing event ready vehicles for rent as an affordable alternative to shipping. On Tuesday, May 2nd @ 9AM PST (California), 5PM GMT+1 (UK) the Rebelle will hold an informational conference call for interested International teams. “How to Rebelle” topics will include: format, logistics, schedule, translation options, vehicle rentals, and additional helpful items.

About the Rebelle Rally:
The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States. The event is a unique challenge and scoring system where precise navigation, not speed, is the ultimate goal. Competitors trade in cell phones and GPs for old-school navigation in a race for the elements of time, distance, headings, and hidden checkpoints. Armed with just maps, compasses, and roadbooks, 60 teams of two will be pushed to their limits as they make their way across 2,000 kilometers of stunning, iconic terrain of Nevada and California. The 2017 competition takes place October 12 – 21, starting in Squaw Valley, CA and finishing in San Diego, CA.
