Have you ever heard of a Ragnar race? Ragnar races are team events that you and your friends run between two fairly distant locations! While the race is often a race, it’s more of a fun time for friends to bond as your team completes around two hundred miles of running. You get to explore and enjoy yourself as you wind down the road in a few vans.

Now back to the Ragnar Pennnsylvania!
Race Location: Stauffer Park Lancaster to Mount Pocono
Dates: June 2-3, 2017
Reebok Ragnar Pennsylvania begins in the history-rich city of Lancaster, with its preserved architecture and old city charm. Teams will navigate rural roads and gentle rolling hills during this 200-ish mile overnight relay. As you chase the sun, you may start to wonder if you have traveled back in time as you pass horse-drawn buggies and hard working Amish folk tending their fields and creating homemade treasures. Runners will breathe in the clean, crisp country air as they run along a sea of corn and wheat fields in Pennsylvania’s Dutch country and farm communities. As the sun sinks below the horizon, stars will inspire a sense of wonder and help each runner find their inner wild. Runners will push north to the finish line in the Poconos Mountain resort area where the route weaves back and forth over the Schuylkill River and through the quaint town of Jim Thorpe. Don’t miss the chance to round up a team of 12 (or 6), and run across Eastern Pennsylvania’s most beautiful countryside.
