Training for Great River

Ragnar Relay Great River is the overnight running relay event of the summer. Your team will start on the bank of the Mississippi River in Winona, conquer the course under the stars and along rolling farmland, and finish back on the river in Downtown Minneapolis. This Ragnar has both challenging legs and beginner level legs for all of your teammates. It also has one of the best finish line parties and some of the friendliest volunteers!

Runners Love Ragnar Relay!

99% of runners would recommend Ragnar after running Ragnar Relay Great River

I often recommend Ragnar to friends. The concept is intimidating and I frequently receive looks of amazement from people who are unfamiliar with Ragnar when I explain the idea of a 196 mile race. The reality though is that there's something for every type of runner, novice to experienced. There's something about working as a team, each person determined to carry their part while supporting everyone else, that always recharges that spirit of running in me and I enjoy seeing the same feeling in other people as well.
