*Ragnar Trail Relay Rainier

Our signature event is back for 2017 - Ragnar Trail Relay.  This year, the course has been moved closer, to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort.  Team ConnecT1D will field a team of eight (8) runners for the weekend of August 18-19.  

Our team will camp among beautiful scenery, meet numerous interesting people, and, yes, do some running.  Each member will run (3) legs over the course of the event, with a total distance of 17.1 miles.  As with all Ragnar events, the running is the secondary event, with the amazing stories and experiences among our T1 and T3 community being the primary.

To find out more or to join the team, contact our event captain, Scott Jozefowski (scott.joz1@gmail.com).
