Abstract Collisions with beams of highly asymmetric rigidities (proton-Gold and proton-Aluminum) were provided for the RHIC physics programs in 2015. Magnets were moved for the first time in RHIC prior to the run to accommodate the asymmetric beam trajectories during acceleration and at store. A special ramping scheme was designed to keep the revolution frequencies of the beams in the two rings equal. The unique operational experience of the asymmetric run will be reviewed.
