Relay teams run from San Fransisco to Napa CA

Over the bay and on the bridge to Wine Country we go! This past weekend, courageous runners teamed up for the Napa Valley stop of Ragnar Relay. Beginning in San Fransisco, the first leg of the race took runners north over the Golden Gate Bridge, and into the scenic Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

At each stop, we blasted music from the BRV-XXL and gave runners and attendees the chance to buy the new Braven 405 waterproof speaker. We also curated a custom Spotify playlist, providing every team with enough music to power them through the two day run.

At the half way point in Marin CA, teams lined up at the checkpoint, cheering their teammates on and getting ready to pass the baton on to the next runner. Teamwork makes the dream work!

After nearly 200 miles of running non-stop, the finish line in Napa was a welcome sight for the weary “Ragnarians”. Set in the scenic backdrop of the hilly, green wine-country, vendors set up to supply food, water, and even massages. The crown jewel of the finish line, however, was the beer and wine garden, featuring local brews and refreshments.

For many, Ragnar is more about having fun with your friends than striving to beat the clock. One of our favorite teams called themselves “You Can Prance if You Want To”, sporting full tie-dye, unicorn horns, and running through the finish line with a bubble machine to complete their epic ensemble.
