Finally, had my first meeting with my Ragnar Relay Team. I knew most members of my team members already but it was nice to get together and see everyone and to meet the members I didn’t already know IRL (Hi Julie and Jill!). If you don’t know what a Ragnar Relay is, long story short, 12 runners, 2 vans and 200 miles of running 🙂
TheHeldawg (our team leader/captain) was kind enough to provide a packet to every runner, which contained maps, elevation charts, the race bible, etc. He also went over the important things that we needed to go over….which I forgot already because I was too busy fighting over getting a hard leg to run. I think I have secured the second hardest leg 🙂 We also discussed other super important things like if we see a wild animal on the course, specifically a bear, what would we do….pretty sure we never figured that out just came to the conclusion that it would be awesome.
Looking forward to a few more meetings with this team and running 200 miles with them!
Anyone ever run a ragnar relay and have any advice? My team consists of experienced runners and mostly marathoners but no one has ever ran a relay of this length.
