F3 Nation . . . Knowing we all like to be challenged, we have something special just for us . . .

Ragnar Trail Carolinas is coming to South Carolina October 7-8, 2016! The Ragnar Trail Running Event will be an awesome F3 CSAUP challenge including Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith.

M’s, 2.0s and fellow PAX will be welcome to hang out and support the F3 teams to encourage fellowship among the extended F3 family (We are waiting for confirmation on cost for spectators). We will also be afforded opportunities to promote the mission of F3 to those in the Ragnar Village, whether it be socially or by impromptu workout sessions. Our goal for number of F3 teams is 20-25 from all areas.

Teams will consist of 8-members (or 4-member ultra teams) who run relay-style on three different single track loops through the Anne Springs Close Greenway forest preserve. Teams run day and night until each member has completed all three trail loops totaling 16.10 miles.

Each team will have the opportunity to camp overnight in a 300 SF area at Ragnar Village located within the Greenway, get to know other PAX from other Regions, and be an example of what F3 is all about to ‘Ragnarians’ who will be participating through this event. We have been designated a special camping area from RAGNAR just for F3 Nation so we can get to know each other on a more intimate level.

  1. Thanks for sending the preblast and the discount code. JRR Tolkien (me) am trying to organize 2 or 3 teams for F3 Charlotte SOB / A51 region so if you are in that region and interested (and I have not spoken to you on this yet), send me a message ASAP Twitter @JRRTolkienF3

  2. Please reply with any questions you have about the relay or the camping out/facilities. Some of the questions we have submitted are about family and friends camping out, any available food options, generators allowed, etc.

  3. HC, Lake Murray region already has 2 full teams registered under the names:
    Mjolnir Time and Thor-a the Explorer
