Ragnar Trail Relay
Ragnar Trail Relay is the ultimate weekend getaway. Our team will come together in April to conquer a series of three smooth single track trails that start and finish at Ragnar Village. The adventure starts on Friday at the Georgia International Horse Park, a former Olympic venue situated outside of the city lights of nearby Atlanta. Inshallah, we will run on top of granite slabs, across small bridges and through forests filled with Georgia pines, streams, ponds and wildlife. This venue features the perfect mix of natural beauty, challenging technical uphill sections, and flowy, gradual, descents. Get ready to celebrate with your sisters all night around the campfire where you can enjoy building sisterhood, halal s’mores, setting goals and crushing them under billion stars overhead!
The price to join the Muslimahs Endure team includes race registration, hotel reservation (backup), 16-week training program, and ME Team Gear. Team members will provide food items to share with team.
Our team will set up the campsite in the Ragnar Village. Camping will be located in the plush grass of the Steeplechase Area. Awards will be given for the best decorated team campsite and almost anything goes: tents, canopies, couches, camping chairs, BBQ’s, kiddie pools full of Kool-Aid, whatever. Last year we had a luau theme. Muslimahs Endure will set up on Thursday between 4:00 PM — 10:00 PM. As a backup we have reservation at the Hawthorn Suites right across the street from the race venue.
A teams of 8 (or 4-member ultra teams) run relay-style on three different single track loops that start and finish at Ragnar Village. Teams run day and night until each member has completed all three trail loops.
From Friday to Saturday, each teammate runs all three loops. Runner 1 runs the Green Loop (hard), then Runner 2 runs the Yellow Loop (harder), Runner 3 runs the Red Loop (really freakin’ hard), Runner 4 runs the Green Loop, and so on until every runner has completed the three loops. The total mileage for each runner is close to a half marathon.
