West Philly Runners is putting together it's first ever RAGNAR Relay team. If you haven't heard of RAGNAR, it is a 24 hour relay race over 200 miles with a team of 12 runners. The race course goes through some of PA's most beautiful country. Team members take turns running, while the others rest, eat, drink, and hang out in vans that follow the runner.

In true West Philly Runner fashion, we will forgo hotel rooms and camp out the night before the run. We have about half of the team spots filled at this time, so we are looking for some more folks who are interested. If you want to run, drive or volunteer (we need to get 2 volunteers), please let me know ASAP. I will need to register the entire team by 6/15 to get the discounted registration fee. The cost for the race will be $90 per person as well as any additional costs for travel, food, etc.

If you know anyone who might be interested in sponsoring our team, please let me know as well.
