Run Pick of the Month - Ragnar Trail Appalachians

 8 Teammates. 120 Miles. 3 Loops. Camping. August 9 - 10, 2024.

In this multi-day event, each team will collectively run 120-ish miles. You’ll run day, night, and day again, sleeping in a temporary tent city known as the Ragnar Village.

When you’re not racking up miles for your team or attempting to catch some ZZZs in your tent, you’ll be hanging out in the Ragnar Village, roasting s’mores, winning partner prizes and partying with other runners.

At the Appalachians event teammates will take turns running on 3 tree lined trails full of dense Appalachian forest. Expect rolling hills with serious elevation, and giant ferns reminiscent of Jurassic Park...... minus the dinosaurs!
