Our Favorite Ragnar Relay Courses

10 out of 10 Nuunies agree that Ragnar Relays are awesome! Many of us have run several different Ragnar courses, sometimes more than once. We haven't met a course we didn't like, but in case you're having trouble narrowing down where you want to run in 2018, we're sharing our favorites!

Laura: I loved Ragnar Atlanta. It has a little bit of everything: fast switchbacks, a rock face, views, and cool bridges. My favorite loop was the yellow loop. It was part of the 1996 Olympic mountain bike course, and it's super curvy and fun!

Mike: I really like Ragnar Trail Kentuckiana. Kentucky is beautiful at that time of year, and it's a place I never would have gone otherwise! (And registration opens in just a few days on Sep 20!)

Arielle: Wasatch Back! It was the first Ragnar Relay course, and there’s something special about the experience knowing it was their first event. The Wasatch Mountains are so beautiful, and the challenging course really brought our team together.

Vishal: Definitely Ragnar Chicago. You get to run along Lake Michigan for the vast majority of the course. And finishing through the streets of Chicago then ending on a beach is always a great reward. Of course, I may be biased because my team set the course record in 2015! 

Looking to challenge their record? Registration opens Sep 20!

Cody: Ragnar Trail Tahoe because it’s TAHOE. There are great trail loops and beautiful views, and the quaint local towns made for a fun destination race!

Zoe: Ragnar Trail Rainier. Ragnar calls it their toughest trail race for a good reason. It was hard but GORGEOUS course. Plus, the gondola ride was a truly unique experience during a Ragnar Relay.

Kirsten: Ragnar Trail Carolina, when our team ran during Hurricane Matthew. While the race was ultimately cancelled, the legs we did get to run were super fun. And talk about team building!

And if it's your first time running a Ragnar Relay, look into the courses that are closest to home. It's logistically easier, but it's also really fun to run a Ragnar where you live. And remember to check out our tips on vanlife etiquette to help you prepare and enjoy the journey!



good luck, eileen! we’ll see you out there!

Doing my first one in October ~ Ragnar Trail Wawayanda Lake! Let you know how it is!
