RAAM Staff

The RAAM Staff is composed of several groups. The primary group which focuses on the race year round is the Executive Staff. We have Key Staff which help us throughout the year with various pieces. Finally, during the race we have dozens of people who help in various capacities from Officials to Time Station Staff to Headquarters. We are grateful for all the support we get!
