We’re Putting the Band Back Together…

Hi #werun22q fans! It’s us again – we know we’ve been silent over here for awhile, but we’re quietly working behind the scenes to try to pull off a Ragnar in 2022! We’re really excited to raise funds for the UC Davis MIND Institute’s 22q Healthy Minds clinic. While we work out what the race and fundraising might look like in our mid-Covid world, we’re hoping to fill the last couple of runner spots on our team!

In order to protect all of our kiddos, our families, our friends, and our communities, we are requiring all team members to be fully vaccinated and boosted prior to race weekend and take a rapid test prior to entering the van for the weekend (this is non-negotiable). Runners must maintain a pace under 11:00min/mile for the duration of their miles (usually between 14-20 per runner) in order to finish the race in a timely fashion. We’ll help plan logistics so that all team members are able to travel to race location and coordinate hotel arrangements, but runners will be responsible for race registration and their own travel, hotels, van fees, and food.

Now for the good part! Our spring team is hoping to run Ragnar New England, starting in Groton, CT and finishing in Quincy, MA (barring no cancellations from Ragnar). The weather should be beautiful at the end of May (May 20-21) and the scenery of a Ragnar never disappoints. We’re pretty excited to be “putting the band back together” as they say and we hope that you’ll join us on this journey!
