200 miles (ish)
Chattanooga -> Nashville
Two vans, 12 runners (+ a few extras) from across Europe (UK, France, Germany and Sweden)
and a LOT of snacks
I can’t wait to fully recap my amazing trip to Tennessee with Reebok to run the Ragnar TN but I want to do it justice and also include photos from the others on the trip as well as imbedding the vlog that I’m in the process of editing, so for now I’ll just give you a quick snapshot of the race. But first, did you watch the hilarious video that I posted on my Instagram of our highly decorated van and teammates?
I was runner number 1 in Van 1 which meant I kicked off the whole race for us.
Leg 1- 11am 5 miles through Chattanooga along the river – average pace 8.06 min mile
Leg 12 (my second leg) around 7pm 4 miles – from Cowan to Winches- average pace 7.42 min mile
Leg 25 – (my third and final leg) 3.20am, 5.5 miles – through Unionville – average pace 8.39 min mile
So I’ve got a lot to share from the race, but I’d love to know what you would like to hear about? How I managed to sleep in the back of the van? Answer: firstly, I can sleep anywhere, secondly, I managed to snag the back row so had 4 seats to lie across. But seriously, which bits of the race would you like me to share?
