It was a weekend of sore muscles, stinky feet and sweaty clothes, but the memories from the first-ever Ragnar Trail Oahu race for live on forever.
April 21-22, more than a thousand runners laced up their sneakers and hit Turtle Bay’s miles of scenic yet challenging trails. Some even travelled from the mainland and neighbor islands to run.
Teams of 4-8 runners worked together to conquer more than 120 miles. The course was divided into three different loops ranging from four to more than six miles each.
“It was a life changing experience for sure,” said Arianne Cameros, who drove down from Nanakuli on Oahu’s west side for the event.
“The weather was terrible,” reported runner Anthony Ching of Ka’a’awa. “It was fun, but I honestly wanted to die at some points,” he chuckled.
The first-ever Ragnar Trail Relay on Oahu takes place April 21-22, here at the majestic Turtle Bay Resort. With about two months to go until racers hit the trails, it’s time to start picking up the pace on your training.
The Ragnar Trail Relay is composed of three different trail loops. Together it comes out to about 13.1 miles, or a half marathon. There are eight members on each relay team. In between loops, runners camp and enjoy the excitement at Ragnar Village, which includes live music, yoga classes, bonfires and more. Although fun, the race must be prepared for.
