Tipsy Teena says, 'Greetings, Gnome! It looks like you're here for the naked newbie gnome race to celebrate EverQuest's anniversary. Keep an eye out for broadcasts indicating when the race will begin. When we get close to starting, stay close to me inside Ak'Anon near the exit to the Steamfont Mountains and wait for the signal.'

This is an anniversary event that runs for 6 weeks, and the race is held 4 times per day. Race times are as follows, and are always based on Pacific timezone...
Sunday: 3 AM, 9 AM, 3 PM, 9 PM

To participate in the race, your character must be a level 1 gnome. You find Tipsy Teena in Ak'Anon, near the Steamfont Mountains zoneline. Hail her after the race has begun to become a participant. Hailing Teena causes your character to become flagged for PvP so that you cannot be buffed by other players, will also make you drunk, removes any movement speed enhancing buffs you may have, and binds your soul to the area. You will race across several zones to find where Tipsy Teena is located in each one. When you find and hail Teena, she will fling you towards the next zone where you will need to find her. Tipsy Teena is available in the Find list of any zone she is in.

The zones where the race is held always follows a specific order, but the location where you need to find Teena will change with each version of the race. If you die during the race, you will respawn at the most recent Tipsy Teena you hailed. The final hail to finish the race is done at Dibster `Dibs` Biroboddle.

Looks like you've skipped ahead. Tsk tsk. Back you go!
