2020 Races

The Races: Ragnar Michigan Trail and Ragnar Michigan Road. Ragnar Relay is about doing things together that we could never do alone. On the road or on the trail, teams run relay-style day and night and day again, pushing their limits, until they cross the finish line together. Grab your most adventurous friends and make memories to last a lifetime!

Ragnar Trail Michigan is back for year two on June 27-28, 2020—yep, it’s happening on Saturday and Sunday again. Escape the daily grind and head to the beautiful Michigan countryside of Hanson Hills Recreation Area, just one hour from Traverse City.

Your team will take turns running over two days and one night, relay-style, on three smooth, single-track trails perfect for any runner experience level. You’ll run on lush forested pine and maple paths, over rolling hills with scenic bluff overviews. At night, let a billion stars overhead (and your headlamp, of course) light your way along the trails.

When you’re not running, you’ll be partying with your team and other runners at Ragnar Village. Think campfire stories, s’mores, live music and even time to roll out those sore legs.

Round up a team of your most adventurous friends for a nature-fueled challenge that will give you memories to last a lifetime.

What do you get when you combine an overnight relay, sugar sand beaches, lighthouses and 12 adventurous friends? Reebok Ragnar Road Michigan, happening on Sept. 25-26, 2020!

Kicking off in charming Muskegon, this epic running journey will take your team past apple orchards, cherry blossoms, historic ships and did we mention lighthouses?

For two days and one star-filled night, run through the vibrant fall foliage, picturesque towns and along the sand dunes of Lake Michigan. And if that isn’t enough you’ll spend 9 legs with beautiful beach views.

Your whole team will finish your adventure as you cross the finish line together at a beautiful open space park in Traverse City, right on the water’s edge. Tired but triumphant, drained but strengthened, teams find out what they can do when they truly come together.

MRG-recommended Products

The Product: Zelus Insoles. The Zelus line is truly unique because of the SmartCells technology, explains Scott Jarold, director of Troy, Mich.-based Fastech Labs, which is behind these insoles. “SmartCells provide extra cushion to reduce impact, plus provide a response with every step you take. They are the reason I wanted to be part of this team when we brought them to market, mainly because there is nothing like it in the industry. I think runners will feel an immediate difference the minute you put them in your shoes. The action of the cells compressing and responding will help with fatigue and hopefully keep your legs feeling fresh, especially after long runs.” Read MRG’s post on these insoles here »
