Just like the Looney Tunes needed Michael Jordan to complete the TuneSquad and beat the Monstars, a Reebok Ragnar Relay team needs each individual runner to complete their team and conquer 200ish miles. The Find a Runner tool is Ragnar’s equivalent to Bugs’ and Daffy’s magnet, golf ball and pulling Jordan through a golf hole. Though, the Find a Runner tool is a bit easier and won’t leave your golfing mates so alarmed. So, if you’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime through a certain kind of Looneyville, here are step by step instructions on how to use the “Find a Runner” tool as a free agent.
Step One: Login and create a Ragnar account
Visit the Ragnar Login page to either create a new account or login to your existing account. You can even use Facebook to make it easier.
Step Two: Fill out your contact information
Team captains search for runners based on age, gender and pace. You can enter your stats on the “contact information” tab located on the left hand side.
Step Three: Click the “I am available to join a team” box
On the “Account Overview” tab on the left hand side, there is a check box under “My Account” information that says “I am available to join a team.”
Step Four: Fill out your race preferences
Have a specific race in mind? Want to run them all? Want to be specifically on a Masters team or High School team? Fill out your preferences and hit save.
Step Five: Wait for an e-mail
We know, waiting is the hardest part. If a team captain is interested in having you on their team, they’ll send you an email explaining their team or an invite. Hold out hope, there are a lot of last minute injuries or scheduling conflicts leaving captains desperate to find runners.
Step Six: Join your new team
Show up ready to run. Just remember your lucky shorts and your special-stuff.
