Yup, I’m packing my bags shortly after unpacking them from Montreal. This weekend I’ll be off to Hardwood Ski and Bike out in Barrie Ontario for Ragnar Trail! Come see what I’m packing with me for this overnight trail relay with my 7 teammates!
Disclaimer: My race entry was covered by Sport Chek and they also sent my teammates and myself some goodies so we’ll be running through the woods looking fly as fly can be 😉 Thanks for supporting the brands that support me!
So what’s Ragnar Trail? Well, remember when I got into a van with 11 other runners and ran 200ish miles across Ontario and ended up at Niagara Falls? Well, I’m doing it again but this time, we get a camp and it’s teams of 8 and we relay our ways through loops in the wood and end up at our camp set at the end of each loop so we don’t need to chase after them in a van. Sounds fun right?!?!?!?! I personally cannot wait and I’m definitely trying to not overpack for this like I did with Ragnar in May! So without further ado, here’s what I’ll be bringing with me!
