Run the race that takes you back in time through Pennsylvania’s Dutch country.
Reebok Ragnar Pennsylvania, happening on June 15-16, is a running adventure across the region’s most iconic and picturesque landmarks that’ll have you and your hand-picked team of 12 (or 6) runners coming back year after year!
The 200-ish mile journey kicks off in Lancaster, PA, a town full of preserved architecture and old city charm. As you chase the sun, you may start to wonder if you have traveled back in time as you pass horse-drawn buggies and hardworking Amish folk tending their fields and creating homemade treasures. Runners will breathe in the clean, crisp country air as they run along a sea of fields while enjoying the simple beauty of Pennsylvania’s Dutch country.
This overnight running relay race doesn’t stop when the sun goes down (or when the tough gets going!). On Friday, as the sun sinks below the horizon, stars will inspire a sense of wonder. This is when the real fun begins! You’ll have to dig deep and push yourself—and your teammates—to keep running through the night as headlamps illuminate your way and into the sunrise on Saturday morning.
On Saturday, teams make their way over the Schuylkill River and through the Insta-worthy town of Jim Thorpe. After each team member has completed all three of their designated legs, you’ll finish triumphantly under the bright orange Ragnar arch nestled in the Poconos Mountains. At last you can put your feet up, reminisce the long adventure and say, “Did that really just happen?!” and “When can we do that again?” Mark you running calendar for June 15-16, and rally your tribe to run across Eastern Pennsylvania’s most beautiful countryside.
