We had so many amazing entries for our Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage Lucky Day Free Team Contest… but today is Amy Brock’s Lucky Day!
We’re really looking forward to our Northwest Passage race next year, and we’ve decided to cap the field at 500 teams to keep the roads wide open and provide an intimate relay- experience. This race is the most run race by Ragnar employees. Why? It’s easy to navigate and us Utahns love the iconic sights of the Pacific Northwest including Deception Pass, Mt. Baker, the Olympic Mountains! Maybe you’re not as lucky as Amy today, but you can still sign up and save on early registration prices! This race will sell out.
Incase you missed the contest on Facebook, we asked our fans to tell us why it would be your lucky day if you won a free team. Here was Amy’s submission:
“Last year, at age 41 I began running for the first time. I’ve never ran Ragnar, but discovered it earlier this year and have been fascinated by how fun it looks, and have been following online. A few weeks ago, I was running my PB 5k when I double sprained my right ankle, and dislocated and broke my left shoulder. I’m currently “out of the race”, but I’m not out for good. Winning a free race entry would give me encouragement and support to get back out on the trail, train hard, and run my 1st Ragnar! (And my team would uber love me!”
We caught up with Amy really quick about running Ragnar Northwest Passage 2014.
(Ragnar Relay) What are you most looking forward to about the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage race?
(Amy Brock) Oh my gosh, just seeing if I can really do it! Since I just started running last year, each milestone I hit (5K, 10K, 15K, a new PB) just builds my confidence and shows me over and over that I really can do more than I think I can. Ragnar will be challenging on so many fronts, but it also sounds fun and crazy. I’m looking forward to the whole experience!
(RR) Why are you excited to be a team captain?
(AB) The camaraderie and sharing this journey with 11 other gals is already making a memorable experience. I am lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest, so it will be special to run my first Ragnar on home turf! Last year the runners went right by my office, and I look forward to that being me in 2014.
Good luck with your recovery Amy! Make Ragnar your comeback!
