Join First Descents on June 7-8 for Ragnar Trail Relay in Snowmass, Colorado!
What is Ragnar? Teams of 8 individuals will get Out Living it on three separate mountain trails, or “loops” that start and finish at Ragnar Village. Over a 24 hour period, each individual will have gained 776 feet of elevation, run 14.3 miles, and raised thousands of dollars for First Descents! Glacial valleys, snowcapped peaks, and blooming wildflowers set the scene as you make your way along rolling single-track. Though you may blame the altitude, in the end it will be the stunning mountain views that take your breath away.
You receive the following benefits by joining the First Descents teams:
