The most amazing trails Ragnar has to offer + an unforgettable adventure with friends. Ragnar Trail Appalachians-WV, presented by Salomon, is happening on Aug. 10-12 at Big Bear Lake. Get ready to escape the daily grind, push your limits, and camp out with your friends at a truly magical location. Any level of runner can come conquer the trails as you find yourself in this journey of adventure, self-discovery, and sheer nature-loving goodness.

Teams of 8 runners (or 4-member ultra teams), come together to enjoy sweet singletrack and perfectly perpendicular trees casting shadows on your path. Your team will run day, and night and day again (!!!) past every shade of green known to man through the dense Appalachian forest. Each runner hits the trail one at a time, while the rest of the team has the option to take in the party vibe at Ragnar Village, catch up on sleep(?), or explore a sea of decorated campsites. Once every runner on your team has completed all three loops, you’ll be crowned the title “Ragnarian.” Bragging rights means a multi-functional finisher medal/tool dangling from your neck, sore legs and cache of wild stories to tell. The race starts on Friday, but you can get the party started early Thursday with s’mores, a big communal campfire and shared strategies for completing the race. Grab your most adventurous pals − or anyone up for a nature-filled weekend − and stock up on sleep now! Mark your running calendar for Aug. 10-12! 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.
