San Francisco, California

The 2019 Annual Cannonball Race Was A Success!

Thank you everybody, see you next year!

The Setting

San Francisco: an entire urban playground at your disposal with steep hills, varied terrain, and crazy traffic.

At first glance, it's only 7.5 miles across from pier to coast. But is a straight line really the fastest way across? What obstacles will you encounter trying to cross it?

This September, we challenge you to be the fastest and most skilled electric vehicle rider in this legendary city, whether it be on skateboardscooter, or unicycle. With over $1,000 of prizes at stake, will you step up to the challenge?
