Reebok Ragnar Colorado

Reebok Ragnar Colorado

Copper Mountain Resort (map)

Sweeping vistas, glittering waterways and larger than life mountains

Reebok Ragnar Colorado is so especially awesome, we have trouble talking about it without blushing. The course covers mountain passes that songwriters spent their careers crooning about. The wildflowers bloom specifically for runners. And it’s not just the elevation that will take your breath away.

Happening on Aug 10-11, the 200-ish mile adventure kicks off at Copper Mountain Ski Resort. From there, teams of 12 (or 6) run two days and one star-filled night, past six world-famous Colorado ski towns, through the White River National Forest and next to the Colorado River on bike paths, backroads and even a little bit of single-track trail.

The race wraps up in the ski resort villages of Snowmass after each of your team member completes their 3 (or 6) legs. Don’t miss the best weekend ever/race that makes running fun/excuse to take Friday off work and road trip with friends that will make you say, “I can’t believe we just did that,” and “when can we sign up again,” in the same tired breath. Mark your running calendar for Aug. 10-11 and get ready to experience a true Rocky Mountain runner’s high.

NEW CrossFit Division!

Go head-to-head against other CrossFit affiliates in the local area for a chance to win the coveted 80LB Ragnar kettle bell. After you register, choose to be a part of the “CrossFit Division.” To be eligible, 50% of your team needs to be an active member of the CrossFit affiliate you will represent.

This race is the epitome of what Ragnar is all about: a community of runners, local flavor, wide-open roads where your support van never leaves your side, Wisconsin country-side, Minnesota city-life, and one of the most epic non-stop “road trips” you’ll ever experience!

This overnight, running relay, adventure is happening on Aug. 17-18, when the daylight hangs on juuusst as long as it possibly can making those sunsets super golden and spectacular.

Your team of 12 (or 6) members kick off the relay on the great Missip’ at Levee park, as one runner hits the road at a time. You’ll run river-side, past Crochrane’s Flag Memorial (Leg 3), and through what can only be described as “pure Americana” with majestic farmland, picturesque barns, colors of green you never knew existed, and the happiest cows on earth, day and night, and day again.

Reebok Ragnar Adirondacks

Reebok Ragnar Adirondacks

Saratoga Spa State Park (map)

Ignite Your Sense of Wonder with a Team of Friends
Reebok Ragnar Adirondacks, happening on Sept. 21-22, 2018, is an adventure through upstate New York’s picturesque Adirondack Mountain range during peak fall foliage season.

The 200-ish mile journey kicks off in Saratoga Springs where runners are immediately immersed by the beauty of upstate New York. From there, teams run two days and one star-filled night past Saratoga Lake, the Hudson River, appropriately named Million Dollar Beach (Lake George), up the southern side of Lake Champlain and ultimately to the home of two Winter Olympic Games - in Lake Placid, NY.

This overnight running relay race doesn’t stop when the sun goes down (or when the tough gets going!). On Friday, as the sun sinks below the horizon, stars will inspire a sense of wonder. This is when the real fun begins! You’ll have to dig deep and push yourself—and your teammates—to keep running through the night as headlamps illuminate your way and into the sunrise on Saturday morning.

No one starts Reebok Ragnar Adirondacks alone, and no one finishes alone either. After each team member completes their 3 legs (6 legs for ultra), they’ll cross under the orange arch together—tired but triumphant, drained but strengthened— for together they have done what they could never do alone. Mark your running calendar for Sept. 21-22 and get ready to experience The Empire State like never before.

Reebok Ragnar Michigan

Reebok Ragnar Michigan

Pere Marquette Park (map)

A Running Road Trip Through the Most Picturesque Parts of Michigan
Reebok Ragnar Relay Michigan, happening on Sept. 28-29, 2018, is a magical combination of fall colors, sugar sand beaches, massive dunes and wild Ragnarians.

This 200-ish mile overnight adventure kicks off in the charming town Muskegon. From there, teams run two days and one star-filled night, past historic ships and lighthouses, apple orchards, cherry blossoms and rolling hills painted in vibrant autumn hues.

This overnight running relay race doesn’t stop when the sun goes down (or when the tough gets going!). On Friday, as the sun sinks below the horizon, stars will inspire a sense of wonder. This is when the real fun begins! You’ll have to dig deep and push yourself—and your teammates—to keep running through the night as headlamps illuminate your way and into the sunrise on Saturday morning.

No one starts Reebok Ragnar Michigan alone, and no one finishes alone either. After each team member completes their 3 legs (6 legs for ultra), they’ll cross under the orange arch together in Traverse City – home to some of Michigan’s finest wineries and the sapphire blue Grand Traverse Bay. Tred but triumphant, drained but strengthened a team of 12 individuals becomes 1 team and finds out what they can do when they come together.

Mark your running calendar for Sept. 28-29, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure/ road trip with friends/ race that will inspire your soul.

Your 200-ish mile adventure kicks off in the town of Cumberland, MD. From there, teams run east for two days and one star-filled night, past thick forest trails, scenic pathways, charming historic Civil War-era towns and eventually the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial!

This overnight running relay race doesn’t stop when the sun goes down (or when the tough gets going!). On Friday, as the sun sinks below the horizon, the moon overhead will inspire a sense of wonder. This is when the real fun begins! You’ll have to dig deep and push yourself—and your teammates—to keep running through the night as headlamps illuminate your way and into the sunrise on Saturday morning.

No one starts Reebok Ragnar Washington D.C. alone, and no one finishes alone either. After each team member completes their 3 legs (6 legs for ultra), they’ll finish together at Yards Park in downtown Washington D.C.—tired but triumphant, drained but strengthened— for together they have done what they could never do alone. Mark your running calendar for Sept. 28-29, 2018 and get ready to experience a different side of the areas surrounding the Nation’s Capital.

Saving Hearts Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention

Saving Hearts Run/Walk for Suicide Prevention

Cuyuna Range Elementary School (map)

Saving Hearts was founded in 2014 after our family suffered the loss of Shane Heyn to suicide. Everyone seems to have their own suicide story and ours started in December of 2012. Shane was one of the strongest men in our family and it hurts us deeply to know he was hurting so bad and felt suicide was the only way to solve the pain. Shane was an amazing, loving, kind man and we had no idea he was suffering.

Saving Hearts was formed to Save the Hearts of people who believe their lives aren't worth living and think suicide is the answer. We also want to Save the Hearts of people like us who are left behind not understanding what happened.

We decided we needed to take action and do our best to help those hurting and help them to realize that their life is precious to so many.

We need to help others see what it means to be loved and wanted. We also want to help to break the silence about mental illness. Banding together with others that have suffered losses and working together for prevention has been such a help in the process of understanding and healing from these tragic events. It should not be something that is swept under the rug and hidden from others. Help is out there and we should never give up HOPE.

It is also our goal to raise money along with awareness for suicide prevention. If we can touch one life, save one heart, save one person from committing this heart breaking act, Shane's death and all those we gather to remember were not in vain.
