Experience breathtaking views in unique destinations while racing to the Ragnar Race finish line. Each Ragnar team race consists of long-distance treks through incredible landscapes.


In the two races available, participants surmount miles by road running in teams of 12 during a Ragnar Relay, or camping with a group of eight friends while taking on the rugged trail-running courses of Ragnar Trail.

Ragnar Relay racers run both day and night while changing athletes. Runners race through scenic landscapes and unique destinations, culminating in more than 200 miles. Each runner in a group of 12 will average about 11 miles over the course of the relay, while “ultra” teams of six runners will run about 24 miles each.

Ragnar Trail racers camp between legs of the race with a group of eight runners, or four ultra runners. In this challenge, runners trek through single-track trails and dirt roads for 14–16 miles over the course of the race.


Choose from trail and relay race destinations such as Cape Cod, Napa Valley, Southern California and the Pocono Mountains. Teams of six to12 adults range $120–180 per person. The money supports partnering charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Child Abuse Prevention Center.

Review: Sopa Barcelona

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
