I personally have never participated in a Ragnar but all of my friends who have participated in one have raved about it. From what I understand, it is quite the experience.
Road Runner Sports is hosting a mini-Ragnar in Seattle and here are the details. Details as provided by their website are listed below. Full details can be found here:
Curious about how a Ragnar Relay works? You've heard your friends talking about it but you don't think you can do it...think again. Come join us for a mini-relay in Seattle! The event is FREE, all are welcomed.
Grab two of your besties and form a team of three for this mini Ragnar relay. No friends (??) Be an ULTRA team of one, or come solo and we'll hook you up with some running buddies--BAM, instant team!
Optional Exchange FUN: Bring a costume or oversize top/bottom to exchange between teammates at the exchange!
Course: approx 3 miles (one loop around Greenlake) per runner - split three ways or do all 9 miles on your own!
