What are the challenges of the week?

This year our partners have come together to provide fun challenges to keep you motivated. Every week, three Ragnarians will win prizes from our partners. The weekly challenges are as follows:

  • #ChaseTheSun presented by Nathan; Jan. 1-8
    • Chase the sun, literally. Wake up before the sun rises and get a run in before work, or end you your day with a sunset hike and admire the view with friends. This week is all about chasing life’s golden moments.
  • #UncomfortZone presented by Muscle Milk, Addaday and CEP Compression; Jan. 9-15
    • Be happy with where you are while working towards where you want to be. Go the extra mile. Run a little faster. Hold the plank longer. You are stronger than you think. Get un-comfortable. It’s where the magic happens. This week is about pushing yourself, and being better for it.
  • #BetterTogether presented by Reebok; Jan. 16-22
    • Strong alone. Better together. This week is all about power in numbers. Grab your boyfriend, spouse, kids, co-worker or BFF and do a workout, go on a hike, run, and accomplish the amazing together. This week is about finding motivation from those around you.
  • #TimeToPlay presented by Salomon; Jan. 23- Jan. 30 
    • Find the fun again. As kids, parks were our playground. Now as adults, our world is our playground. Run through the snow. Create a snow angel. Find your favorite trail, and run it backwards. Find your inner child, and unleash it. This week is about doing something active, simply for the fun of it.

    Does this code expire? The race I would be doing isn’t until fall 2017,

  2. Gabe Arnold says:

    Would it apply to a Ragnar that you’re already registered for in ’17?

    • Nicole Ginley-Hidinger says:

      Hi Gabe- The code is only good for teams you have not registered yet. It cannot be used retroactively. Thanks for checking!

  3. Veronica Kowalewski says:

    Can multiple team members participate and each get discounts? I.e. 4 team members, $240 discount?

  4. Foehser says:

    Two questions:
    What if more than one person does this, can more than one code be applied to a single team registration? And does that person with the code have to be the captain since they’re doing the registration?

    • Nicole Ginley-Hidinger says:

      Hello- The code is only good once per team and the captain will need it during the registration process.

  5. Jethro Sheridan says:

    Is the code per person or per team?
    Can more than one person on a team use the code?

  6. Wendy says:

    So im reading you can do anything active and write it down….do you have to complete 200 miles in the 30 days?

    • Hi Wendy – Yes, you can do any activity you want to complete the challenge. You don’t have to complete 200 miles in the month of January, although that would be awesome too.

  7. Rachel Polski says:

    Is this just a $60 code that is used per team? Or can individuals of the same team apply this code? Thanks!

  8. Sarah B says:

    If more than one team member participates, can they each get $60 off their registration fee? Or is there a limit per team?

  9. Beth says:

    Can the code be used for Ragnar gear instead of an event?

  10. Katie says:

    The page with the code and calendar went away after I downloaded the calendar. How can I see the code again?

  13. Joe Atilano says:

    Can I be eligible without facebook?

    • Nicole Ginley-Hidinger says:

      You can! Just download and print the calendar, track your workouts and at the end of the month we’ll send out a link where you can submit it!

  14. Bryant says:

    I’m not on Facebook or any other social media. Can I still participate in the challenge?

    • Yes you can! Print your calendar and fill it out as you complete your daily activities! When the 30 days is over you will be able to submit your calendar to receive a sticker.

  15. Diane says:

    Had a heck of a time navigating your site on my end. Lost the page before i can retrieve my code……now what?

  16. Brandon says:

    For the weekly challenges, does that have to every day that week? Or just once or more?

    • Nicole Ginley-Hidinger says:

      Hi Brandon- It’s just once during the week, but feel free to do it however often you’d like!
