I know this is a long way down the line, but early registration is until the end of the month and it is always nice to plan these things early and get into the swing of things.
Ragnar is now doing trail relays and it sounds very cool. No van, no driving - just camping and "resting" and running. Trail relays have 8 runners on a team even though I am tempted to try an ultra team approach of 4 people. Here is their description of the Southern California event, also here is the website http://www.ragnartrail.com/locations/vail-lake-ca
" You may have been to Vail Lake Resort before, but we are willing to bet we can show you the less traveled trails of this fantastic resort. With large shady oaks, abundant wildlife, and scenic views, it doesn't get much better.
Vail Lake may only be 7 miles from I-15 nestled neatly in between Los Angeles and San Diego, but once you arrive you will feel like you are on another planet. Lake Vail is secluded from the congestion of Southern California and borders Cleveland National Forest, Agua Tibia Wilderness, and BLM land.
At Vail lake we have cooked up a trifecta of Southern California's most beautiful trails. And it doesn't hurt that they all have views of the lake throughout. The beautiful and challenging network of dirt roads and single-track trails have made Vail Lake Resort and ideal place for a Ragnar Trail Relay."
Terry just joined a team and did the inaugural relay in Zion and she had a blast. Please let me know if you are interested or have questions.
