This is not just any canyon. This is not just any race.
This is not just any Network.

Eight weeks ago, the Colonia Citizens Network was launched to provide a rallying point and Colonial identity for all those looking to make their home in or pass through the Colonia Nebula.
October will see the thousandth member join the community.
CCN invites you to celebrate by joining us in a race on the most fearsome track yet found in Colonia.
Location: EOL PROU RS-T D3-509 B 2 A
Date: Saturday 22nd October
Time: 17:00 for 18:00 start (Streaming from 17:00)
Discovered by Qohen Leth, the Running Man is a treacherous network of deep gullies, sandy plains and dark, winding crevasses on a tiny misshapen rock orbiting a ringed Ammonia world, twenty five light years below Jaques Station.
The formidable track has claimed many ships; to master it, you will need all your flying skills.
- Only Jaques Vipers allowed
- All ships need mining lasers
- Stay below 300 metres altitude
- Don’t leave the canyon
Ship launched fighters will have their own heats.
Racers will split into two teams – the first team will line up at the start line, while the second team are positioned around the track, using their lasers to cordon off the wrong turns. After each race, the teams will swap places.
The overall winner will receive a victory paintjob and be crowned ‘Race Master’, streamed live on CCN TV.
Practice sessions will be held for pilots looking to familiarise themselves with the route throughout the next two weeks. These are highly recommended – it is a hard track to master!
If you’d like to take part please register here.
If you’re thinking of coming to Colonia, the 22nd October would be a good day to arrive.
Fly safe and see you there, Commanders!
