There are a bunch of great events designed to test physical ability that take place throughout Southern California. We've got something like ten months of summer, so why not throw your hat in the ring at a local CrossFit competition or obstacle course? Your fellow 818ers have been participating in the NLI circuit for years and we've even done a couple Tough Mudders. It's also pretty cool to see your fitness outside of the gym in action.
Nima, our resident endurance event expert, brought the Ragnar Relay event to my attention and wanted to spread the word about the Southern California race that is coming up on the weekend of April 10-11.
Here's what you need to know:
- The Ragnar Relay is an overnight (24+ hour) race.
- You can field a team of 6 or 12 participants.
- The race is long (Huntington Beach to San Diego) and is broken up into different legs of varying distance and difficulty.
- The cost per participant is between $125 and $165 (although prices will go up in early February).
While the Ragnar Relay is very difficult, it is not unlike any other physical event in the sense that you will need to dedicate some time, money and effort to the cause. If you think you have what it takes, check out the Ragnar page (link) for a more detailed look at the map, the race legs and other important information. If you have any questions or want to get in on this awesome adventure drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
