As of the end of the first day of open registration on November 1, 200 of 300 available entries were sold for the 2008 TransRockies Challenge scheduled for August 10-18, 2008. More teams registered on the first day for the seventh edition of the event than competed in the first two editions combined. At the time of posting, the race was 70% sold-out.
"It was a hectic morning," said Event Director Aaron McConnell of the first day of registration. "Changing the opening time to 10:00 am worked out well as we were in the office and able to handle the numerous inquiries which came in from all over the World."
