One of the cool parts about RAAM is that it is a pretty low profile event. It doesn't get the hoopla that Ironman does, and I like that. The start, and (anti-climatic) finish were no different. Below are some pics and videos from the start of this trans-continental endurance race (Thanks Jeff - I love that term)

The route. Rather daunting huh?
