Ragnar Trail Races

hit the trail for big city mountaineers

Big City Mountaineers partners with the Ragnar Trail Relay series to help raise important funds and awareness for BCM’s youth programs through our Summit for Someone program. These fun, team-based challenges are a great way to get involved with Big City Mountaineers, find adventure, and give back.

As a member of one of the Ragnar Trail Relay teams, you will join 7 other energized individuals on a mission to both fundraise and train for these unique races in some of the most beautiful parts of the country. You’ll become a part of a community of dedicated outdoorists who are also committed to making wilderness mentoring experiences possible for under-resourced youth.

Here’s how it works:

  • Contact the SFS program manager to discuss your interest in joining a BCM trail team through Ragnar
  • Register – free of charge – to reserve your spot on one of the Big City Mountaineers relay teams participating in a Ragnar Trail event
  • Set up your personal fundraising campaign page. The fundraising commitment for each team member is $500
  • Start training for your event and kick off your fundraising campaign by engaging your network of family and friends
  • Once you’ve completed your fundraising, receive a sweet gear package of trail running gear to support your Ragnar adventure, compliments of Big City Mountaineers’ incredible industry partners
  • Run your race!
