The Ragnar Trail Relay is a gritty trifecta of the most scenic trail loops Mother Nature can serve up. Each trail loop begins and ends at Ragnar Villageā„¢. Teams will run relay style, rotating through all three loops.

Ragnar Trail Appalachians, WV

Coming Soon!


Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, Big Bear Lake is one of those places you didn't know you were looking for until you found it.

From 5,000 acres of pristine trail running, we carefully selected roughly 15 miles of Appalachian badassery for you and your team. This trail running Mecca provides you with some of the most exciting and challenging trails on the east coast.

This trifecta of incredible trail loops will leave you wondering when you can run at Big Bear Lake again.
