Hi runners, anybody here running the SoCal Ragnar Relay?

I found a link to here from an article a friend sent me, so I've just been browsing the threads for a bit . I'm new here and loving the motivation already! A bit about me... I ran cross country and track in high school and more or less quit running for awhile. I haven't raced since... 93 probably but I love running and I've been back on the wagon for the last month or so - whenever I gave my friend the entry fee for the relay. Right now I should be able to do a 10K in less than an hour, so if my longest leg isn't more than 7 miles and not spiked with hills.....

 

Any experiences running distance relays? My friends I am running with did the Ragnar last year and said it was a blast! I'm excited but a bit nervous at the same time. Any input or experiences would be great! Thanks again!

    Hi!

     

    I ran track in high school also! I am clocking less than 1 hour on my 10Ks as well. Seems like you and I have alot in common.

     

    Are you running in a SoCal Ragnar this year? I want to participant in one, but can't seem to gather enough people. Need a team member?

     

    Talk to you soon.

    Hi, I was going to organize a team and then it fizzled out. I am interested in the relay, 7-8 mile legs are doable for me. Ran LA Marathon last year 4:24, not running this year.

    Relay sounds like tons of fun. Don't know if its to late to enter a team or the website has a link for teams needing runners...I printed out the Ragnar "bible". but haven't looked

    at if for awhile.

     

    Where you thinking of organizing a team?

    I wanted to organize a team, but couldn't get anyone to commit.

     

    I think registration is still open for the SoCal Ragnar, which is in April. We missed the early bird prices and the prices increase again on Feb. 15th. I was trying to find the link to see if there were teams looking for runner, but could not find it. Not sure they offer that.

     

    How many people do you already know of that are interested? I would love to run this. Looks fun!

     

    The Napa Valley race is in September.

    Hi,

     

    How great that your daughter's name is Allison too.

     

    If your team still has a spot open, I would love to be considered.

     

    My email is 48pinups@gmail.com. If you email me there, we can exchange info.

     

    Talk to you soon!
