Pillars Wellness – Ragnar Trail Relay
We are taking a team back to West Virginia this year to run the RAGNAR trail relay! We “compete” in the corporate team event and it’s a great time! For those of you unfamiliar with this race, we take a team of 8 and collectively run, roughly, 120 miles – in three repeating loops – on wilderness trails that wind through forests, valleys, and mountainsides. We will run day, and night, and day again, sleeping when you can in our tents near Ragnar Village (food coffee, bathrooms, etc).
Each teammate completes each race loop once – green, yellow, and red – with breaks in between for a grand total of about 15(ish) miles per runner.
You don’t have to be fast – just have a good attitude. We do ask that you do your best to prepare for the race though so we don’t have to ask other teammates to run extra loops – we will though if we have to.
Dates: August 11 – 12, 2023 – (we typically camp on Thursday night so we are in place to start early Friday morning)
If you’re interested in joining the team, please send an email to Shawn Clark; include your preferred email address and he will send you a link to the registration page. The team has been paid for by ATS – you will need some sleeping gear, a headlamp, food, etc.
Please send me your interest ASAP! This is in West Virginia and hoping to get a good mix of VA-based and MD-based participants this year!
