Thursday Getaway: Ragnar Trail Relay

April 09 2015

At this point in the week, we suspect you're in the mood to get out and enjoy the world outside of your computer screen, but it's Thursday, and you can't -- yet. Don't despair! We've got just the thing to make you smile, daydream and draw inspiration from for your weekend, which is just around the corner.

The Ragnar Trail Relay series kicks off tomorrow with the opener in Atlanta, Georgia, starting at the Georgia International Horse park. Runners in teams of eight or four will embark on an overnight adventure, traversing a single-track trail and dense forest, among other terrain along the 120-mile course. Teams will run through the night, camp and enjoy bonfires, s'mores, music and more along the way. The short video above showcases a bit of the magic that makes Ragnar Trail Atlanta something to dream about, and consider training for so you can participate next year.
