Check out your race course

Hello runners,
Ragnar is fast approaching.  Now is a great time to get onto the Ragnar site and start looking at your exact route.  To do this.  Go to  In the "select a race" drop down click New England.  On the left tool bar under RUN FOREST RUN you will see Course Maps.  Click on this and find your runner number and legs.  If you click on the leg number there is turn by turn directions of your running route.  At the bottom of the page there is even an elevation map.
This is what you will see:

Please use this as a training guide.  I suggest going to the closer routes and doing a few practice runs on your exact route.  Please please please print out your race course, and get familiar with the miles, elevation and difficulty level.  I can't stress enough how many people told me to prepare for the hills.  Upstate CT can be a hilly bitch so get those hill workouts in!
Here is a list of your runner number and leg numbers to make sure we are all on the same page
