I'll do all of the legwork, if I can get 11 more runners. Looks like current registration rates are $115 per runner, and I will be able to get one driver lined up for us. We would need a second driver and there would be more money required for the van rentals (we need 2) and supplies (TBD based on discussions). I am based in Redmond, and I am a turtle, so teammates need not be concerned with being terribly... Sun, 16 Mar 2014 21:38:45 EST Ragnar Trail, anyone? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x55743x56519659 Is anybody out there? Is anybody out there planning on a Ragnar Trail race this year? Anybody run a Ragnar Trail race before? I am looking at the Ragnar Trail Appalachians race in WV. A friend ran it as part of an ultra team last year (I am just planning on a regular team) and the video of it from Ragnar looks amazing (rain and all!). I am mostly a road runner these days but am looking forward to getting out on the trails. I also think the idea of camping sounds better than being folded up in...

Saw the story on the Today show their team and was inspired. I'm a former Marine and now work as a flight paramedic. Since getting out of the Corps i've managed to put on a little to much weight. My goal is to drop weight and run in the Napa 2013 race. Still don't have a team but will hopefully find one. Thanks for this group and I will accept any harassment and encouragement to meet this goal.

I "signed up" for the 10K. I know this is a little tame compared to the Ragnar, but I did it last time around and it spiced up a weekend long run. Anyone else participating?

My name is Savannah and I have done 3 half marathons. I was training for my first full marathon this year but it got to be too much for my body so I will do that another year. Anyhow, the Ragnar Relay race sounds like fun, new and challenging. I joined this team because I hope to learn more about the race, like what to expect, as I want to do it next year in Minnesota or Wisconsin!

I would do both, but I have family flying in to San Diego for the weekend to run the half with me, and I don't feel like I should be out of town running Ragnar while they are here in my hometown. <BR> <BR> So, no Vegas for me... this year. <BR> <BR> Anyone planning to run it?

I was invited to run the SoCal Ragnar in April, but it conflicts with two other races I've already signed up for. <BR> <BR> Well, that, and they are also really expensive. <BR> <BR> Just the initial sign-up fees are $100 at the minimum, assuming you get the earliest entry fee. I am running my two half marathons in April for $55 a piece. And Ragnar includes all those other expenses, too. I think I paid over $200 in total for Ragnar Las Vegas, and I'm local. <BR...
