Get Ready to Ragnar . . . Again

Last year, Petzl and Ragnar teamed up to help HERA by donating entries to each of the Ragnar Relays.  Teams all around the country ran 200+ miles and raised funds for HERA.  It was a blast!  Check out photos of the 2012 Ragnar Relay teams here.

It was so successful that long-time HERA partner, Petzl, is once again donating one team entry to each of the 2013 Ragnar Relays to HERA.  These special entries of $1,260 per team ($105 per person) will be available on a first-come basis.  The first team to put together the $1,260 entry fee and pay it to HERA will receive an entry to the Ragnar Relay of their choice based on availability; only one team entry per Ragnar Relay.

Get In on the Fun

Pick your race, put together your team, and contact the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation to get in on this very special offer.  Your $1,260 team entry will support our mission to stop the loss of women from ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness.  To enter your team and make your entry fee payment, contact the HERA Foundation at 970-948-7360.  Is the race already sold out?  Send us an e-mail, and we’ll let you know when future races become available.

Team Challenge

Teams are encouraged to raise funds for HERA as part of their Ragnar Relay participation.  Each team member is asked to raise a minimum of $100.  The team that raises the most money in 2013 will receive a free entry for the Ragnar Relay of their choice in 2014, based on availability.  The deadline for the team fundraising challenge is December 1, 2013.  This fundraising challenge is only open to the 16 teams that purchase their entry through HERA.  Click here to set up your fundraising page today!

What is Ragnar?

Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. Teams are made up of 12 individuals; each individual runs 3 legs. The legs of the race vary in difficulty and distance, from 3-8 miles, allowing elite and novice runners to run together. Over 2 days and 1 night, teams run across 200 miles of the country’s most scenic terrain. Pair that with crazy costumes, inside jokes, a great finish line party and unforgettable stories. Some call it a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant. We call it Ragnar.  For more details, click here.
