1 Day, 4 Runners, Party Till Sunset

The Ragnar Sunset Series is a new running festival where all teams share one goal — make it to the finish line before the sun sets.

Ragnar Sunset Washington D.C. is happening September 21 at National Harbor, MD. The adventure starts Saturday afternoon where teams of four will try to outrun the sun by running two loops each of 4.7 miles, relay-style. You’ll run on a paved course that features stunning canal views and iconic vistas of the harbor.

When you’re not running you’ll be partying at Ragnar Village with your fellow runners, friends and family. There will be live music, food, games, a beer garden and other fun activities.

Special offer for Run Washington readers!

Looking for more of a challenge? You’re in luck. The Ragnar Trail Appalachians race is back August 9-10!

At Big Bear Lake Camplands — a couple hours outside of D.C, teams of eight will set up camp and take turns running on three sweet tree lined trails full of dense Appalachian forest, rolling hills with serious elevation, and giant ferns reminiscent of Jurassic Park, minus the dinosaurs… we think. It’s 120-ish miles of nature-fueled running magic.

For a limited time, get $100 off Ragnar Trail Appalachians with promo code RUNWASH.
