Ragnar Relay – Northwest Passage July 20, 2012

By Karen Simmons

The Ragnar overnight running relay race began at Peace Arch State Park in Blaine Friday morning with approximately 350 teams of 12 people each (over 4060 participants – many in crazy costumes) and ended in Langley, WA 200 miles later. Blaine ACS Communication Van stationed at Peace Arch State Park and ACS members positoned at four checkpoints along with mobile support provided nine hours of emergency and Relay-related communications within the City of Blaine. Limited sunscreen was needed – it rained!
