Ultra Running, Ultimate Party… Inside ‘Ragnar Trail Tahoe’ Event

GearJunkie is live at Lake Tahoe this weekend to race in the Ragnar Trail Relay. The 130+ mile race sends teams of 4 or 8 runners on looped trails. Each team’s runners come back through the main start/finish area multiple times, encouraging constant cheering, tagging of new racers for the relay, and a continual party scene — throughout the whole day and whole night — as the hours and miles tick by. We wandered the Ragnar village for an hour today before getting on the trail. Here are a few top images from the scene so far. —Stephen Regenold
