We're proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the Rebelle Rally for the 2021 season! Catch the event live as it streams from Oct. 7 -16, 2021.
What is the Rebelle Rally?
The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States. Blending the love of driving with the ultimate challenge of precise navigation, the Rebelle tests your skills over 8 days of competition.
It is not a race for speed, but a unique and demanding event based on the elements of headings, hidden checkpoints, time, and distance using maps, compass, and roadbook. (from RebelleRally.com)
Why are we sponsoring the Rebelle Rally?
Since the inception of the Rebelle Rally, we have been huge fans of what the event is about and what the Rebelle stands for. 8 days of navigating in the field (with only a compass and map), camping, wheeling, and team-work all rolled in to one event; what is not to love about it?!
To be forth-coming, we've actually been involved with Rebelle since the inaugural event back in 2016 when we sponsored #TeamWildandFree of Coralee Lack and Holly Freeman! Rebelle is an outdoor off-road event that we fully support; the core values, camaraderie, and sportsmanship are aligned with Wagan Tech's Company Mission!
If you've never followed the event or a team, you truly do not know what you're missing!
