Again this year a group of members of the OCARC will support the City of Orange Police with their radio communications prowess in this annual law-enforcement race.

The race begins outside Baker, CA and goes along Rte 127 to Shoshone, CA; on Rte 178 to the Nevada border; through Pahrump NV and into Las Vegas.

Last year the Orange Police Department finished 40th overall out of 274 teams, and second in their division of 150 or less sworn officers. Their time for the 120 miles was 15 hours 46 minutes and 29 seconds. They started at 3:00 PM Saturday and finished at 6:46:29 on Sunday morning. They achieved their goal of finishing in under 16 hours.
