Off-Road Events


Raptor Offroad Community

As the name suggests, Raptor Offroad Community (or ROC) is an off-road club based on the idea of creating an all-inclusive community for desert off-road enthusiasts. Our club hosts prerunner-style desert  events. We welcomes all off-road vehicles, from Ford Raptors to Toyota Tacomas.  Our off-road events range from 2 to 5 day excursions in the American West, with a focus on covering awesome desert terrain and seeing some rare off-the-beaten-track sights, such as abandoned mines, ghost towns, geologic desert formations, and more. Come join us for an adventure in the dirt and experience the fun for yourself.

In order to join our club trail runs, you must be a paid member of the club.
See our Members Page for details.
