Training for Great River

Ragnar Relay Great River brings together the magic of running through rural and urban Minnesota, bonding with new and old friends, and the accomplishment of conquering 200 miles by foot. Your team of 12 (or 6) will start your running adventure on the bank of the Mississippi River in Winona. From there you’ll experience every shade of green you can imagine as you run by endless rows of corn fields and through forested areas like Afton State Park. There’s no shortage of water views on this course including sunset views on Pepin Lake. Come be a part of 10+ years of history at Ragnar Great River and learn what it means to Find Your Inner Wild!

Runners Love Ragnar Relay!

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

Thank you for another amazing race. Ragnar Relays are the most well-run races I have ever run - quite an accomplishment with a 200 mile course and 36 exchanges. All of the volunteers along the route were attentive and helpful, and our team did not have a single hiccup. Check-in at race start was even more streamlined this year, and the finish line was beautifully orchestrated this year to get all teams medals, photos, and checked-out in a matter of minutes. The community that pops up within Ragnar is always the best part of the race - van decor, chatting with other runners and a genuine sense of fun and adventure are what make Ragnar different than any other race. Thanks for another great event!
