The Meaning of "Ragnar"

I dug up a little info on the background of the Ragnar Race - Enjoy!

The Ragnar Relay Series was created by Tanner Bell and Dan Hill in 2004.  The First Ragnar race was located in Utah and is the Wasatch Back.  

Ragnar was a Norse Viking in the 9th Century.  Dan and Tanner named the race after him because he was an adventure seeking, conquering, tough guy- Just like all of you :)

If anyone was wondering what our time was last year ( I was ! )  Here it is!
We came in 104th place out of 190 Teams- 
We complete 194.1 Miles in 29 Hours 26 Minutes and 8 Seconds.  That includes the extra 4+ miles Chris ran when he got lost AND Frank waiting for his van because Van 2 left him at a church in the middle of the night :)  So our time and pace was even better than that.
Way to go to Team 179!
