Review of Ragnar Relay: Huntington Beach to San Diego by

Posted by: on May, 29 2013

Participated in RAGNAR So Cal two years in a row now. I LOVE RAGNAR! Such a fun challenge and a great experience to share with your team mates and other teams. Enjoyed other teams names, van decorations, costumes, etc. Sleeping in the van, not being able to shower are not highlights of this event, but its only for one day, so no big deal.

Course descriptions listed “easy” or “hard” do not seem to be accurate. Short runs are listed as “easy” but tend to include steep inclines. Long runs are listed as “hard” but have flat or downhill routes.

Night running isn’t bad at all. Runners are required to wear reflective vests, head lamps, and flashing LED lights on their backs.

Parking at major exchanges can be a bit difficult due to the large number of vans on site at one time.

These events have created memories of a life-time! Awesome medals, great post race party for runners & families to attend. Free pizza to the runners. Awesome shirts, great race apparel & misc. items for sale. Looking forward to next year.
