Ragnar Sunset Santa Clarita, powered by Black Girls Run!, is our newest racing format and it’s coming October 17, 2020. What makes the Sunset series different? A smaller, 4-person team, less mileage than a typical Ragnar, just one day of running, and a whole lot of festival fun.
Join the adventure, starting Saturday afternoon at Central Park, the crowned jewel of Santa Clarita, just an hour away from downtown Los Angeles. Teams of 4 will try to outrun the sun relay-style on a 3.3-ish mile loops two times each. Together you will run 26-ish miles – that’s a full marathon! Your goal? Finish before the sun sets.
This cross-country course will take you up hills (we’re talking a couple hundred yards of climbing) on a mixed terrain of wide, smooth packed dirt trails. You’ll get amazing views of the city and mountain vistas, and at its highest point, you can see the entire valley including the Village festival. The course is challenging, but it’s perfect for runners of all experience levels. So team up with anyone from your running fanatic best friend to your grandma.
When you’re not running, you’ll be hanging out with your friends and lots of friendly strangers at the Ragnar Village festival. Teams can even set up sweet hangout spots around the Village. There will be live music, food, games, a beer garden, on-site parking, and other amazing features.
