Packing for Ragnar!

Share on Pinterest

So what do you pack for Ragnar? If it’s your first-ever 200-mile two-day relay, you have no idea what to take with you — other than guess that you should probably take three running outfits, one for each of your legs.

But Google is a good friend in need, and so are the ladies at Another Mother Runner [you can check out and print their detailed Ragnar packing list here]– and most of all, our awesome Team Captain. (I’ll tell you all about our team one of these days, but basically, we’re awesome. Just like that!)

Oh, and yes — to confirm what’s on your mind right now: I am that person who packs for vacation the day of our flight… but Ragnar? Four days to go, and I’m nearly packed.

Well, not nearly, but today I took care of the most important stuff. The outfits. Of course! So here was Phase One, laying it all out:Outfits for Legs 1, 2 and 3 (as numbered). Sparkly Skirt for Leg 2, as it will be in the dark (and you know what reflects stuff best? Sparkly things.) Another Sparkly Skirt for Leg 3 and to cross the Finish line with the team.

4. SkirtSports Serendipity dress for van hangout. (I was going to say in between legs, but that just sounds weird?) It’s super easy to put on/ off, one-piece clothing: winner.

5. Sweat pants, two shirts (long and short sleeves), calf sleeves, hoodie and stuff for night time.

Plus PRO Compression socks to go with everything, and three drier sheets and three zip lock bags, for each change of clothes post run. Voila:And just as I was done packing those in my supersized gym-turned-triathlon-turned-Ragnar bag, these arrived:
I ordered them last week, with Code PCBLG for 40% off and free shipping. It might still work, if you want to try it out.

So yes, my friends! Despite my little spill the other day, Ragnar is still on! With rest, luck and a couple more chiropractor visits, of course.

from yesterday…

    Looks like you are all set for your trip! I love the idea of Ziplocks! And those sparkly skirts are so cute! 🙂

      I think I’m not even half-packed! So much other stuff to consider – run accessories, snacks & things, and more things… 🙂 And thanks, I love the Sparkly Skirts! Very comfy for running, too!

      Ohhh…. sadly I don’t. Our team captain is taking care of everything and I don’t even know who’ll be driving our vans! Do you need someone to take shifts with you, or someone for a second van?

        Someone for a second van. The good news is I found 2 more runners! With 4 in each van, someone should be okay to drive. Whew. 🙂

    Hey! If you see a van driver in a black walking cast around the exchanges during the relay – that’s me! Say hi!
