THIS EVENT HAS BEEN DELAYED TO SPRING 2022.
Ragnar Relay, out of Salt Lake City, Utah, with the support of Mason & Associates, formerly known as Heritage Law Group, of Gallatin, Tennessee, announces the Ragnar Sunset Tennessee, presented by Mason & Associates is coming at you May 1, 2021 at the famed Lock 4 Park in Gallatin, Tennessee, benefiting JDRF.  This event is formerly known as the Ragnar Trail Sprint Tennessee of September 2020, rescheduled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. If you love a good team challenge and crave time in the great outdoors, this Sunset relay has got you covered — 1 day, 4 runners, 2 loops and 30-ish miles.

Your team of 4 will set up camp for the day in Ragnar Village at Lock 4 Park in Gallatin, just 30 miles from Nashville. You’ll wind your way through rolling hills and single-track rooty trails with incredible views overlooking the Cumberland River. Each team member will take turns running two different trail loops.

When you’re not running you can party with the whole Village complete with live music, drinks and food trucks all day long. And when you finish all 8 loops, your whole team will cross the finish line together and celebrate what you were able to accomplish with your amazing team.

Owner of Mason & Associates and long-time Ragnar enthusiast, Jake Mason noted, “I’m thrilled to be able to partner with such an amazing company as Ragnar in order to bring a remarkable event to Gallatin, where my family and I live, work, and play. I’m elated to be presenting this first-time event in Gallatin.” He continued, “It supports Heritage Law Group’s advocacy for the health of our community by encouraging involvement through running and sponsorship, and my personal pursuit of contributing to keep Gallatin the most wonderful city in which to live.”

Life on the frontier was tough in the 18th century.  Without pharmacies or over the counter medication that we are used too, people had to use what they had around them. Join us for this workshop about medicine in the 18th century and get a chance to see salve and poultices made using a common recipe from the period. This program is best suited for ages 10 and up. Meet at the back-boat ramp, and we will walk the history trail to the trade cabin. Social distancing protocols will be followed.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN DELAYED TO SPRING 2022.
Ragnar Relay, out of Salt Lake City, Utah, with the support of Mason & Associates, formerly known as Heritage Law Group, of Gallatin, Tennessee, announces the Ragnar Sunset Tennessee, presented by Mason & Associates is coming at you May 1, 2021 at the famed Lock 4 Park in Gallatin, Tennessee, benefiting JDRF.  This event is formerly known as the Ragnar Trail Sprint Tennessee of September 2020, rescheduled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. If you love a good team challenge and crave time in the great outdoors, this Sunset relay has got you covered — 1 day, 4 runners, 2 loops and 30-ish miles.

Your team of 4 will set up camp for the day in Ragnar Village at Lock 4 Park in Gallatin, just 30 miles from Nashville. You’ll wind your way through rolling hills and single-track rooty trails with incredible views overlooking the Cumberland River. Each team member will take turns running two different trail loops.

When you’re not running you can party with the whole Village complete with live music, drinks and food trucks all day long. And when you finish all 8 loops, your whole team will cross the finish line together and celebrate what you were able to accomplish with your amazing team.

Owner of Mason & Associates and long-time Ragnar enthusiast, Jake Mason noted, “I’m thrilled to be able to partner with such an amazing company as Ragnar in order to bring a remarkable event to Gallatin, where my family and I live, work, and play. I’m elated to be presenting this first-time event in Gallatin.” He continued, “It supports Heritage Law Group’s advocacy for the health of our community by encouraging involvement through running and sponsorship, and my personal pursuit of contributing to keep Gallatin the most wonderful city in which to live.”
