The Rebelle Rally is an all-women off-road navigational competition traversing more than 2,250 kilometers through Nevada and California's iconic terrain. The Rebelle Rally is the first women’s off-road navigation rally of its type in the United States.
It is the greatest road trip for the adventuresome and aggressive, competitive woman. The name of the game is pace and precision. In fact, the best part is that you do not need to be a professional driver or have a race vehicle.
The race is designed for 4×4 and X-Cross vehicles and takes place on the stunning dirt roads, double tracks, trails, and sand dunes of the vast American West. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, the Rally will challenge you and improve your driving and navigation skills.
What is the Rebelle Rally?
Denoted as the first women’s off-road navigation rally in the United States, the Rebelle Rally blends the love of racing with the ultimate test of precise navigation. It’s a road course that tests your skills over 8 challenging days of competition.
The Rebelle Rally 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 direction.
The prize for winning a specific class is free entry into the Rebelle Rally, bragging rights, and a custom trophy and other non-cash prizes. (4×4 Class and the X-Cross™ Class winners will receive $5,000 in credit for each competitor toward the following year’s entry. This cannot be converted to a cash prize if the competitor chooses not to compete the following year.)
Automakers participating in the all-women Rebelle Rally include Jeep, Porsche, Nissan, Toyota, Kia, Mitsubishi, Ford and Honda.
This year, there are more than 100 Rebelles, who hail from five countries and 24 states, and more than a third of the field will be driving a Jeep Wrangler or Jeep Gladiator. The three Jeep factory teams in this year's field will be driving the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, which delivers 49 MPGe and 21 miles of all-electric range with no range anxiety.
"We refer to the Rebelle Rally as the ultimate authentic proving ground for people, products and vehicles," stated Emily Miller, Founder of the Rebelle Rally. "When we started this event in 2016, we had two goals: to create the ultimate, women-only, off-road competition and adventure, and to create an event that showcases just how capable stock vehicles can be."
