I ran the So Cal Ragnar Relay in 2010 and all I have to say about it is, it is the most fun I’ve had at a running event EVER!! The race was pretty well organized although there were a couple of changes to the course leading up to the race but those changes proved to be pretty minor in the grand scale of things!
For those who have not run Ragnar the idea is a team of 12 with 2 vans. 6 runners per van take turns running legs of the relay race. each runner runs 3 legs each for a total of 36 legs and 200 total miles! Cheering on your fellow teammates is as fun as running the course yourself! Each team picks a theme with costumes and you can even decorate your van to fit the team theme! In between the driving and running you attempt to get some sleep when the second van takes over, which can be another challenge!!
This race is a great way to build camaraderie with your friends and have fun running! I highly recommend this event!
