Calling all FiAs!
The Ragnar Trail Race is coming to the Carolinas on October 7-8th. This is an 8 person trail race where everyone will run 3 legs for a total of 16.1 miles (3.3 leg, 5.3 leg and a 7.5 leg). I know many of us have never run a trail race before (me included) but it is one of their flattest races they organize so don’t let that stop you.
Instead of driving around in a car to the next legs, we will have a 300Sq Ft. campsite area where all of the runners hang out. We can have a designated FiA area where all of the FiA teams will be together so we can get to know each other even better. At night, there is a party under the stars where you will enjoy campfires, s’mores, movies and maybe a little sleep in a tent.
This is the first year for having the race in Fort Mill, SC (Anne Springs Close Greenway) so they reached out to us for support by offering us a $150 discount on the registration fee. The total cost with the discount will be $1,090/team (approx. $137/person). You can also raise money for a charity (Running Works) to try and receive a discount on the registration fee. Prices will go up on August 4, 2016 but the discount will be good until race time. Registration includes team parking at the Greenway, camping area, finisher medal & shirt, and meal & s’mores on Friday Evening.
M’s, 2.0s and fellow PAX will be welcome to hang out and support the teams (not sure about cost for spectators yet).
Check out the website for more info and a little video.
Let me know if anyone region is interested and I will pass along the discount code or if you want more info. Would love to see a big FiA turnout!
