Want to go to the US and run a race? Well then why not take along 11 friends (or 5 if you’re feeling like a challenge) and run a 200ish mile relay between you all across some amazing parts of America. The medals are pretty amazing too and they all have a bottle opener on them. Each person runs three times, with each leg ranging between 3-8 miles and varying in difficulty, and the race carries on overnight into the next day with your team following behind you in a van.
For those who run all available races, there’s a pretty epic Immortal medal which is 12 inches tall. There’s also medals for doubling spefic events and a very clever idea called ‘Build-a-medal’ where you earn connectors for your second Ragnar race and then you will earn more connectors with every other race. Someone in the UK needs to steel this idea (Or Ragnar could come to the UK).
You can find more details about the Ragnar races coming in 2016 on our events page and there are some medals in our archive. We’d love to add more medals so if you have any we’d love a photo of them to add to the site. You can share on twitter, facebook or just send an email to [email protected]
