Guess the Route



2017Do you think you can pick the eight overnight towns for RAGBRAI® XLV? Enter the contest and see how close you come. Last year, one person correctly picked all of the towns. Guess we will have to make it tougher to guess them!
Whoever correctly chooses the most overnight towns in order will receive a certificate worth $100 of RAGBRAI merchandise. The second place winner will receive a certificate worth $80 of merchandise, and a third place winner will receive a certificate worth $60 of merchandise. Certificates must be redeemed by July 29, 2017.
Only three winners will be chosen. If several people correctly guess the same number of overnight towns, the winning entries will be drawn randomly from among all the contestants who have correctly guessed the highest number of overnight towns.
No purchase is necessary to enter, and please only one entry per person.
All entries must be received by January 13, 2017.

Join us to learn the actual route at the RAGBRAI route announcement party. Buy tickets or watch live online at RAGBRAI.com.
