Reebok Ragnar Del Sol is back in February when Sonoran Desert provides a magical backdrop for 200-ish miles of relay running. Think cool running weather, towering Saguaro cacti and sunsets that belong in a watercolour painting.
This overnight running relay begins in the in the Wild West town of Wickenburg on Friday morning. Teams of 12 (or 6) runners tag team the miles, cheer each other on and run into the sunset. During the night, stars envelop runners, vans light up with Christmas lights and teams enter an alternate universe. On Saturday, runners worship the rebirth of the sun and find out what they’re capable of all the way to the finish line.
Running together as a team is an experience like no other, and teams will celebrate their accomplishment as they party Ragnar-style at Riverside Park in Mesa, home of Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs Spring Training. Mark your running calendar for Feb. 9-10, 2018!
