This year, for the first time ever, the epic Reebok Ragnar Relay Series is coming to the UK with the Reebok Ragnar White Cliffs from Maidstone to Brighton on the 23-24 September 2017.
Teams of 10 will run relay style along a 170ish mile route overnight, taking in picturesque villages, the rolling downs and the majestic white cliffs of the coast.
Each teammate will run three “legs” with each leg ranging between 3-11 miles and varying in difficulty, and each teammate will run between 12-22 miles in total (depending on which legs they run). Runners can also sign up for the Ultra division, which involves half the team members and twice the challenge.
It’s a twenty-four hour, overnight relay adventure, so runners will have to grab sleep whenever they can… At exchange points, in designated outdoor sleeping areas or in the van.
Although new to the UK, Ragnar started small in Utah in 2004, but has grown to be the largest US relay series with over 40 events. President and co-founder Tanner Bell is thrilled to be taking the series overseas. “I’m excited that we are able to bring Ragnar to the UK. Reebok Ragnar White Cliffs is one of the most stunning courses we have ever developed. Whether you are looking for a competitive experience or just want to have an epic overnight adventure with friends, Ragnar offers something for beginners and seasoned runners alike. The Ragnar running experience is like no other. Enjoy the company, the unique setting, wear fancy dress if you like or maybe even decorate the team vehicle. This inaugural Reebok Ragnar White Cliffs will be a sight to behold.”
