It seems as though we have been searching for that perfect CSAUP event for some time now. Every year another event comes along and peaks our interest, we all sign up, train for it, and join a handful of brothers who share a decent experience, yet something is missing. The race might be fun but the experience sucks, or maybe the F3 experience is great, but the race is poorly organized. Finally, we have a solution! Over the past couple of months, YHC along with several brothers have worked hard to develop a pretty great partnership with The Ragnar Team..
1st- What is Ragnar? Ragnar Trail Series is a 8 man team trail relay race at Anne Springs greenway on Oct 6th & 7th. Each man takes turns running 1 of 3 trail legs, one runner at a time until each man has completed all 3 legs totaling 16.5 miles. This race takes around 24hrs to complete. In your down time you can visit the Ragnar village and get fitted for free Salomon shoes for the run, or hang out in the hammock field, or maybe join in on the free coffee and Smores around the bonfire. Meanwhile, your team will set up camp in the F3 designated campground, with complete amenities geared towards us, with goals at making our experience the best team event we do all year.
Huge F3 specific campground- lined with shovel flag field, BBQ grills and food, our own area for games (corn hole, horseshoes etc.), the freedom to bring just about anything into our campground to better our experience, picnic area for M’s and 2.0’s. Announcements made over race PA for an all F3 workout and sendoff. How about an F3 specific competitive division? Winning F3 team takes home The custom F3/Ragnar Championship belt. With incentive discount to return the following year to defend your title. In addition, due to our less than desired weather last year, Ragnar is adding a bonus “Rock You Like a Hurricane” medal for any returning runners from 2016’s race. We have worked out a VIP pricing discount for all F3 teams. Our pricing will never increase- Regular team is $1040 or Ultra for $660.

I truly believe this event can be our new F3 annual race. There will be no other CSAUP event with this big of a 2nd F.The more PAX we can get to join us, the more Ragnar is willing to do for us, and the more exciting this event will become. Spread the word.
I will be hosting many Ragnar training events leading up to the event for any PAX that are interested. If you have any further question or requirements, don’t hesitate to contact me.
