“I am a 37-year-old father of four who just started running in 2010. I have conquered what I thought was my ceiling and now must set new goals. The best part of my new found hobby is that I am setting an example for my children to go [get outside] instead of watching TV and playing video games.” —B. Voracek

“I’m Jonathan Jurva Kastar. Born and raised Alaskan. My love for outdoors adventures began with my dad. As a former marathon runner and adventure seeker he moved to Alaska in 1983 to teach in a small town called Seldovia, which had a booming population of about 400 people and is only accessible by small plane or boat. At the school in Seldovia he started something called Project Adventure. With help of the students and community members, he helped build and establish a trail system in the vast woods around the school, but if that wasn’t enough…”

“I’ve been a runner all my life. OK, maybe I didn’t consider myself a runner when I was a toddler, but I remember when I was in 3rd grade and I had to run a mile around the playground for my elementary school’s field day competition. I remember thinking to myself: ‘This right here. This is fun. It’s hard, but it’s fun.’” —Megan Killian

What would I do? Whatever it takes, as long as it is fun for me and all the spectators (hey, that’s what life is about, right?).

I have the preparation going for years now, combining different sports in different environments to be prepared for anything you might throw at me.

Now is the time I can say I am ready for this! ;-)

I’ve been fighting to remain a runner through countless surgeries, PT, and reluctant rest over the past 6 years, and I haven’t given up yet. My first major race back will be epic regardless, but completing my first Ragnar will make it unforgettable. I just want to prove to myself that I am still a runner.
