If you're one of those people, then we've got good news: you can combine your love of running and spending time in Mother Nature at the Ragnar Trail Carolinas-SC presented by Salomon, the ultimate weekend getaway this October in Anne Springs Close Greenway, just 45 minutes outside of Charlotte.
The Best Running Party Under the Stars
This year, runners (friends, co-workers, kids) are welcome to join us a night earlier, starting on Thursday for a bonus day of camping, campfires, kumbaya-ing and fun! Mark your running calendar for Oct. 5-6 and join us for a camping adventure with friends, a chance to explore your freedom to roam and an ultimate badass weekend.
Right off the bat, we should let you know that Ragnar Trail is an overnight trail running adventure you can only do with a team.
The starting gun will go off on Friday morning, when your team of eight (or four, if you're feeling daring!) will set out to conquer a series of three smooth, single-track trails that start and end at Ragnar Village. Once the sun goes down, runners will make their way through the star-filled night with headlamps until everyone on their team has completed all three loops on Saturday.
Back at Ragnar Village, you'll be able to rest your legs next to the campfire, where you can enjoy s'mores and relax with your team.
