This is the heart and soul of the event. Each trail begins and ends in Ragnar Village. It is the start line, the finish line, and the exchange point. After each loop you will return to the support of your teammates and the adulation of the teams around you. Ragnar Village will be complete with:
• Food & snacks (Friday night dinner included for each runner)
• S’mores, Coffee, & Hot Cocoa
• Billions of stars
Starting times are based on accurate pace predictions, it is critical for a successful event that each runner has an accurate 10K road race pace in their online profile. Note that pace means how long it takes you to run one mile (minutes/mile) at your race pace and not how many overall minutes it takes to complete the 10K. These predictions are critical to a successful event and will allow us to place teams in starting slots based upon the team's overall pace. If individuals have not participated in a competitive 10K recently, we strongly encourage them to run one before submitting a team pace. Alternatively, consider getting together as a team for training run at a competitive 10K pace. When assigning starting times, we consider the difference between road and trail running, the difficulty of the course, elevation above sea level, as well as the pace of all of the runners on the team. Therefore, it is extremely important that the pace submitted for each runner is accurate.
Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers from each category within each division for teams who complete all 24 loops. There will also be an award for best team name, the best campsite, best costumes (no feathers or glitter), and overall favorite team.
Other points to note:
The use of personal music devices with headphones while running is strongly discouraged.
Startling wildlife can cause a dangerous situation. Making noise while you are running will help alert wildlife of your presence and keep you safe. If you do see a wild animal, common practice is to make noise and to keep your distance.
While participating in the race, the consumption of alcohol is highly discouraged. Alcohol greatly increases the risk of dehydration.
Bonfires have functioned as catalysts for bonding experiences for thousands of years. Who doesn’t like roasting s’mores while listening to someone strumming a 6-string. We are bringing the fire to the event (depending on the venue and area burn restrictions) but you have to bring good sense.
The race will occur rain or shine. However, under certain severe weather conditions where significant damage or altercations to the race course occur, we reserve the right to cancel the event, shorten the event, and/or hold teams until the weather improves.
