30 For Freedom

30 For Freedom

Cedar Valley Church (map)

30 for Freedom is a movement that exists to end sex trafficking in our lifetime.

It all started when God gave me, Brent Silkey, a dream to run 30 miles on my 30th birthday, to invite 30 friends to do it with me, so we could raise $30k to rescue victims out of sex trafficking because every 30 seconds somebody becomes a victim of human trafficking.

 The first year we had 48 runners do the full 30 miler and 75 run a shorter version at the 5k distance. $81,346 was raised!

 Last year in 2017, Gov. Dayton proclaimed May 27. 2017 was “30 for Freedom Day” in Minnesota. We had eight chapters with over 600 participants who ran/walked a 5k, half marathon, or 30 mile run. We were in four countries and over $176K was raised!

 In 2018, we are aiming to engage over 1,000 participants to raise $250,000 for sex trafficking prevention, rescue operations, and restoration efforts through our missions partners both domestically and abroad.

Sakatah Challenge

Sakatah Challenge

The Sakatah Challenge – 5.6K Run/Walk, 10.5K Run and 11.6 mile ride are in the Sakatah State Park. This park is truly, one of Minnesota’s most beautiful parks. Join us for a fun day whether you are doing the 5.6K, 10.5K, or 11.6 mile.

The original 5.6k Challenge: The race that started it all! The first 1⁄4 mile takes you along the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail before you dive off-road. The next mile and a half is a challenging yet beautiful off road trail through Sakatah’s old growth forest. You then loop back onto the Singing Hills trail finishing your run with views of Sakatah Lake off to your right. This is a timed event.

The alternative 5k: When off road running is not for you, this is an easier more leisurely option. The alternative 5k is an out and back on the paved Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail through the beautiful Sakatah old growth forest. This event IS NOT timed.

The 10.5k follows the road around Lake Sakatah. Just before the 4th mile the 10.5k goes off road for a 1⁄4 mile before connecting you with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail and dive deep into the heart of the park finishing the last leg of your run surrounded by the beautiful green forest. This is a timed event.

The 11.6 mile bike ride follows the road around Lake Sakatah then continues east up a long steady hill for the first 7 miles. Before looping back and connecting with the Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail. Helmets are required to ride in this event. This is not a race, official times will be given.

Reebok Ragnar Wasatach Back

Reebok Ragnar Wasatach Back

University Track Club (map)

Run the race that inspired a worldwide running movement

Going into its 15th year, Reebok Ragnar Wasatch Back is beyond legendary to the locals of Northern Utah. It’s the race that inspired the entire Ragnar series, and for good reason! Held during those epic Utah summer days, when the sun almost never sets and the wildflowers smile up at you, this relay is a sight to behold.

Happening on June 1-2, teams of 12 (or 6) runners come together in Logan, UT at the back of the Wasatch Mountain Range to kick off their 200-ish mile adventure. From there, teams run two days and one star-filled night, through friendly communities, up stunning green mountainsides, past world-class ski resorts and into a postcard-worthy countryside dotted with horses and quintessential barns.

No one starts Reebok Ragnar Wasatch Back 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.

Don’t miss the best weekend ever/race that makes running fun/great tradition 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.

Reebok Ragnar Niagara

Victoria Park (map)

Run to the Falls: Ragnar's most famous finish line

On June 1-2, get ready to experience the best parts of Ontario by foot, on a course that cuts across a countryside so scenic you will be rubbing your eyes in disbelief and wondering, “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?!”

This overnight running relay kicks off in the quaint town of Cobourg. From there, you and your team of 12 (or 6 ultra-runners) tag-teams it, about 300-ish km, along the Canadian shores of Lake Ontario on the Waterfront Trail, and past unspoiled vineyards, majestic overlooks and a gorgeous sunset that’s nothing short of Instagram worthy. You’ll (continue) running under the Toronto skyline, a gazillion stars and then watch the sun come, again, as you head into day two (still running!) as you head towards the falls. THE FALLS...yes, those falls. The ones they write songs and poems about. Your team will cross the finish line together under the drum of 150,000 gallons of booming water from Niagara Falls and look over at the good ol’ US of A as you wonder what it feels like to get a good night’s sleep.

It’s an amazing thing, and we’re hard at work making sure the course is improved, better than before, on a great date, and smoother than ever, so you can run, drive, sleep (?), repeat your way to a glorious victory dance under the finisher’s arch. Mark your running calendar for June 1-2 and join the adventure that is Reebok Ragnar Niagara!

Reebok Ragnar Pennsylvania

Reebok Ragnar Pennsylvania

Staugger Beach (map)

Reebok Ragnar Pennsylvania begins in the history-rich city of Lancaster, with its preserved architecture and old city charm. Teams will navigate rural roads and gentle rolling hills during this 200-ish mile overnight relay. As you chase the sun, you may start to wonder if you have traveled back in time as you pass horse-drawn buggies and hard working Amish folk tending their fields and creating homemade treasures. Runners will breathe in the clean, crisp country air as they run along a sea of corn and wheat fields in Pennsylvania’s Dutch country and farm communities. As the sun sinks below the horizon, stars will inspire a sense of wonder and help each runner find their inner wild. Runners will push north to the finish line in the Poconos Mountain resort area where the route weaves back and forth over the Schuylkill River and through the quaint town of Jim Thorpe. Don’t miss the chance to round up a team of 12 (or 6), and run across Eastern Pennsylvania’s most beautiful countryside.

Not local but still want to join in the fun? We have a virtual option for you as well. Simply register for the VIRTUAL 5K Run/Walk and we will send your race t-­shirt and bib in the mail (continental US only). You can join us on June 23 (or anytime it works for you) right where you live! Share your experience with us by posting pictures on social media using #wayzatafree #serve5K (Note: Registration for the virtual 5K closes on June 1.)

Reebok Ragnar Northwest Passage

Reebok Ragnar Northwest Passage

Peace Arch State Park (map)

Where the forest meets the sea and leaves you breathless

Home of iconic landmarks, friendly locals and breathtaking coastal views, Reebok Ragnar Northwest Passage is the unforgettable running relay you do with a group of friends, happening on July 13-14.

The peaceful Pacific Northwest scenery lives up to its famous reputation on the Ragnar course. The journey begins near the Canadian border in the city of Blaine, WA and passes famous sights including the glacial Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, Deception Pass and the Puget Sound. As a team, you’ll run relay style all day, all night and day again passing vibrant fireweed blossoms, fruit stands, picturesque farms and noble bald eagles soaring above the trees.

Your 200-ish mile relay wraps up, after each team member completes 3 (or 6) legs, in Langley, WA on Whidbey Island where teams celebrate an accomplishment they won’t soon forget.

Mark your calendar for the Northwest’s most sought after Ragnar experience. This race sells out every year, and for good reason. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

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.

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.

Levee Park (map)

The Epitome of the True Ragnar Experience + No Volunteer Requirement When You Sign up Early!

Reebok Ragnar Great River, going into its 13th year, celebrates more than just America’s longest river. 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.
