Chase the Moon Challenge with Caboose Tavern, Ragnar, Grass Roots Fitness - June 17, 2019 - 6:30 PM

A few thousand small steps for you. One giant leap for a children’s charity. It’s our third annual Chase the Moon challenge, where we try to accomplish together something we never do alone. Again. Last year, thousands of Ragnarians each ran 6.7 miles under the full moon, logging enough miles to circle the moon 11 times. This year, let’s make it 20! We’ll run together (virtually) by the light of the silvery moon, score some sweet swag (optional) and do some good along the way (awesome!). For every lap around the moon, Ragnar will donate to 100 mile Club. 

It’s free to join, but t-shirts and medals are limited, so act quickly.

Register for the event using this link https://challenges.runragnar.com/2019/chase-the-moon-2019/

All levels welcome. We have some awesome participant gifts and giveaways that will be raffled off.
