Ragnar Relay Great River @ Winona | Minnesota | United States

Great things come to those who wait (or, in this case, read to the end of the article)! Use the promo code GR18MSPRUNNING to receive $80 off your team registration for Reebok Ragnar Great River and get ready to have the experience of a lifetime.

Reebok Ragnar Relay Great River brings together the magic of running through rural and urban Minnesota and Wisconsin, bonding with new and old friends, and the accomplishment of conquering 200 miles by foot. Your team of 12 (or 6) will start your running adventure on the bank of the Mississippi River in Winona.

From there you’ll experience every shade of green you can imagine as you run by endless rows of cornfields and through forested areas like Afton State Park. There’s no shortage of water views on this course including sunset views on Pepin Lake. Come be a part of 10+ years of history at Ragnar Great River and learn what it means to Find Your Inner Wild!

If running 200+ miles between teammates isn’t challenging enough, the fine folks at Ragnar have created a new challenge! With the CrossFit Division, runners can go head-to-head against other CrossFit affiliates in the local area for a chance to win the coveted 80LB Ragnar kettlebell.

Faster than the Pastor – Duluth @ Faster than the Pastor - Duluth Register
Aug 25 all-day
Faster than the Pastor - Duluth @ Faster than the Pastor - Duluth | Duluth | Minnesota | United States

“I press on toward the goal to win the heavenly prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:14

Faster than the Pastor, A Journey to the Cross is a fresh and relevant community building, evangelization effort and health advocacy initiative, created to bring our faith community together in a way that celebrates and exalts our faith and proclaims the Gospel.

Beautiful and God breathed.  Our FTTP events look and feel like typical 5K races.  We are different.  Our events are NOT USATF certified. Our sanctioning agent is bigger. Is God!  All event distances are based on a guiding scripture.  Philippians 3:14 = 3.14 mile journey.

What have our participants said? “Coolest event ever….Truly you have put our faith in action….Thank you for producing an event that speaks to our soul….everything expected in a big race with an incredible bonus – a CHRIST centered event!”

For one entry fee, participants receive a fabulous FTTP shirt, pair of socks, a finishers medal, and a RAFFLE ENTRY for a trip*!  In 2017 we gave away a 14 day trip to the Holy Land!  What other event does that?

*Trip raffle is available at all events with 1000+ registered participants. So register today and bring your 12 of your friends!
