Race: Las Vegas Ragnar (18.2 Miles) 01:32:00, Place overall: 120
Total Distance
18.20

18.2 miles in two days of running the Ragnar Vegas. I really don't like not getting my sleep but, Ragnar is a lot of fun and you make a lot of new friends along the way. Out team, "Lloyd is Awesome" finished in as 120th position out of 423 teams running. Not bad for a split 6 pak team from all over the place. I'm sorry this is a very brief race report, but I ran this LV Ragnar so I could get my "Saints and Sinners" medal for running the Wasatch Back Ragnar and Vegas this year......been there, did that and got the medal.....
