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.
