Get ready to experience Ragnar like never before with the new Ragnar Washington D.C Sunset, happening Sept. 21, 2019. We’re talking a brand new race and a whole new Ragnar format. What makes Sunset different? A smaller, 4-person team, less mileage, just one day of running and a whole lot of festival fun.

Join the adventure, starting Saturday afternoon, at National Harbor in Maryland, just outside of the District. Teams of 4 will try to outrun the sun, running relay-style on a 4.7 mile loop two times each, on a course that features stunning canal views and iconic vistas of the harbor. Together, you will run more than a marathon!! Your goal? Finish before the sun sets.

Check in:

Team captains can check-in to the race at the HQ Tent on Saturday after the venue opens to teams. Venues will open 2 hours prior to the first start time. Race specific open and close times can be found on the race webpage and Race Runner packet. Teams are encouraged to check-in at least one hour prior to their start time. Upon check-in, the team captain will receive the team bib (also the timing chip), a bib-belt, confirmation of the team division/classification, shirt tickets for each runner on the team’s roster, and other goodies.

Runner Rotation:

On a regular team each runner will complete the loop once or twice (**dependent on course distance). For ultra teams each runner will complete two or four loops (**dependent on course distance). All exchanges will take place within the Festival Area. Please refer to the Course section of the website for race specific information.

Kit List

Your captain will be sent an in-depth email outlining all key items to be brought with you for the day ahead..

    Clothing: Depending on the time of year and location of your race the weather can vary from highs in the 80s (and even 90s) and lows in the 50s to 60s. It’s best to have options but starting with shorts and short-sleeves during the day. Bringing an extra layers for backup is always a good idea. And don’t forget about costumes, wigs, noise makers, your custom team tee-shirt, face paint, etc.! Throwing some flip flops and/or non-running shoes in your bag for hanging around base camp isn’t a bad idea.

    For this event does each member run their two loops consecutively or team member 1 runs one loop, passes it off to team member 2 who runs their first loop and so on until team member 4 and then they start over?

Meet the organizer

The idea to run an overnight 24+ hour running relay across the mountains of Utah was a lifelong dream of Steve Hill. The dream became a reality in 2004 when Steve, his son Dan and Dan’s college roommate, Tanner Bell, organized the first Wasatch Back Relay, spanning 188 miles from Logan to Park City, UT. Starting small, the Ragnar Relay Series has grown from a single relay in Utah to the largest overnight relay series in the nation. Some call it a movement. We call it Ragnar.
