The Great Dragon Race
From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki
The Great Dragon Race is a recurring, race-style Clan Event, in which members of participating Clans complete various tasks to earn ingredients needed for recipes. The ingredients are then used to prepare a specific dish over a set time frame. Finally, the completed dish is fed to the Clan Dragon, allowing it to move forward on the race track, similar to Sugar Rush, another race-style Clan event.

Timing & Requirements
The Great Dragon Race runs for 4 days when all participating Clans in the game are split into groups of maximum ten, in accordance to the league they are currently in. These groups then compete against one another to win the race. The event was introduced in Update 2.6, in which Clans can participate only if they qualify by having a Clan Dragon fully hatched.
There is a limit of thirty recipes that each member can cook during an event to earn points for the Clan Event. However, the Trainer can opt to cook up to five more recipes at a cost of 20 Gems per recipe after the limit is reached. Recipes can only be cooked one at a time. Trainers can opt to refresh any or all of the recipes if they desire. Each recipe can be refreshed once every 2 hours or immediately by pressing the button if a Trainer wishes to pay the Gems cost to speed up the process. Each recipe has a different rarity and takes a different amount of time to cook. The recipes given to the Trainer are random and the chances for their rarity varies. There is a 35% chance to receive a Common recipe, 25% chance for an Uncommon recipe, 20% chance for a Rare one, 15% chance for an Epic one, and 5% chance for a Legendary recipe. Once a dish is complete, it can be fed to the Clan Dragon allowing it to move forward in The Great Dragon Race.
For the duration of this event, Clan Quests (in addition to the regular rewards) will award ingredients needed for recipes. The ingredients that are given are randomly-generated by the game, thus no ingredient is bound to a particular type of quest.
The ingredients that a Trainer currently has can be accessed by going to the recipe selection screen and choosing the option. Returning to the recipes screen, from the ingredients screen, is done by pressing the button.
Ingredient Donations & Requests
In addition to completing Clan Quests, Trainers can request specific ingredients in Clan chat once every 3 hours by pressing the button next to the total amount of each ingredient. Whenever any Clan member makes a request for ingredients, a notification appears at the bottom-right corner of the tab and is automatically for 5 of the chosen ingredient. Each Clan member can donate 1 to 5 ingredients per request, with the maximum limit for each donation set at 5. However, multiple Clan members can donate. Donating is done by pressing the button to the right of the ingredient on the request. Each Clan member can donate up to a total of 40 ingredients per day on various requests. Pressing the button right next to the ingredient will show the Trainer how many times they donated for that day and how much time is left until the limit for donations resets.
Once a recipe is finished, to receive points for it and to be able to start another recipe, the rewarded food must be fed to the Clan Dragon by dragging it to the Dragon's mouth, allowing it to move forward in The Great Dragon Race.
Recipe Types and Ingredients
Each recipe has a different rarity and thus a different difficulty level, ingredients required, as well as a time limit for completion. The more rare a recipe is, the more challenging it is to complete and the higher the points awarded for its completion.
See Limited Collections for details about the rewarded Dragons
There are three different sources that reward participating Trainers with prizes, namely progress or milestone rewards, the MVP reward, and the leaderboard rewards. All three depend on the league the participating Clans are in. Clans in higher leagues will receive better rewards, but the requirements will also be higher.
Milestone Progress Rewards
There are five milestone rewards for the Clan to reach collectively. Each milestone rewards a card pack that gives Dragon Pieces only for Blazebird Dragon, Cinder Dragon, Hazmat Dragon, Knight Dragon, Noble Dragon, Orc Dragon, Quake Dragon, Shuriken Dragon, Skater Dragon and/or Treasure Dragon.
MVP Bonus Reward
The most active member of the week will be awarded status and a certain amount of Clan Coins, depending on the league their Clan is in. Members can see the current MVP rankings by going to the menu where recipes can be cooked and pressing the button. The rankings can also be accessed by opening the Clan interface, selecting the option, then pressing the tab. The latter option can also be used when there is no ongoing Clan Event, while the former can only be used during an ongoing event.
The leaderboard can be accessed by going to the menu where recipes can be cooked and pressing the button. Here, the current score of each Clan can be seen, the time left until the event ends, each Clan's currently active Clan Dragon and their position on the race track, the points needed for each milestone, and the and buttons. Pressing either of these two will bring up the leaderboard prizes, but the former button disappears if the Clan has scored the minimum needed to qualify for the leaderboard, as well as the text in the left of it, and is replaced by the icon.
Clans have to score a certain minimum in order to be eligible for receiving the prizes from the leaderboard. Thus, Clans in League 1 will have to score a minimum of 6,000, those in League 2 a minimum of 15,000, those in League 3 a minimum of 30,000, those in League 4 a minimum of 150,000, and those in League 5 a minimum of 300,000. Clans not reaching that minimum score will not receive any of the possible prizes, regardless of their final ranking at the end of the event. The rewarded card pack gives Dragon Pieces only for Clan Dragons, with the exception of Chip, and the amount is in relation to the Clan's final ranking. When claiming grand prizes, it is possible to receive cards for Clan Dragons already owned.
As only one of each Dragon can be owned, the applicable card will automatically be compensated for by being replaced with a certain amount of Clan Coins in the event that this occurs. Thus, 50 are given for Ruptia, 125 for Striker, 200 for Gravelis, 350 for Amoura, and 500 for Brimstone, Kutter and Boone.
The amount of Food and Gold rewarded depends on the Level Modifier.
