Specifics for the race are HERE
Race tips can be added or reviewed HERE
You can recruit or try to find an Alliance HERE up until the midpoint of the race. At or after the midpoint you will not be able to kick from your team or join a team AND receive the race rewards. I emphasize AFTER the midpoint of the race if you join a team you WILL NOT receive any race rewards no matter how much you participate.

ALLIANCE HEROIC RACE TIPS
You are in a group of 20 teams. To get the dragon, you must qualify by finishing lap 4 and win in that group of 20. NOTE: Check the special rewards to determine if there are orbs being rewarded for those teams NOT in first place.
Breeding: To breed Rare's use two low level dark dragons. To breed epic's use two low level pure dragons. It is best to keep at least one breeding building available for breeding requirements.
Hatching: To hatch Rare's buy dark dragons from the shop. To hatch Epic dragons, buy pure dragons from the shop. Since pure's have a long hatch time, it would be best to always have two pure dragons waiting until they are needed. It is best to keep at least one hatchery slot available for hatching requirements.
Feeding your dragons: Save your hatches from previous nodes to use for the feeding nodes. Feed to level 7 but no higher than level 10 to save on food.
Farming: Grow Mass Harvester's on all farms, but only collect what is needed for the node. It is best to have at least 10 farms growing food. If you do not have ten farms then it is best to have one or two growing Producer's, or at least enough food to be able to meet a 150,000 requirement.
For collecting gold: Only tap on habitats to collect gold as needed, frequently check the node requirements to ensure you have reached your goal. Activate your Midarian tower as often as possible to maximize gold output. NEVER USE SPEEDY & GREEDY AS IT DOES NOT WORK FOR THE RACES.
Arena battles: Fight ONLY the number required for your current task! It is best to leave individual battle nodes for the strongest fighters. All members should contribute for joint effort nodes unless the strongest fighters are able to complete the nodes in the shortest amount of time.
