Today we’re highlighting one of our more unusual collections of yoga mats — our Ragnar Collection. What, you say, isn’t Ragnar all about running? But I’m a yogi! Well, it turns out a lot you yogis are also runners, and vice versa. And yoga mats aren’t just for yogis — runners need mats for stretching before and recovering after… and for sleeping on in the case of Ragnar races, which are usually overnight (which is why one of their events is called “Chase the Moon”).
This weekend, runners are racing along the St. Croix river from St. Paul to Duluth, Minnesota, so we thought it was time to celebrate this collection! (And, not coincidentally, we’ll be waiting at the finish line in Duluth for all of you!)
If you’re not familiar with the Ragnar Relay Series, it’s a nationwide series of long-distance relay events that are roughly 200 miles long and last two days and one night. Ragnar teams are comprised of 4–12 runners; teams with 6 or fewer runners are considered “ultra” teams. The 200-mile distance is divided between the runners into legs of various lengths, and a slap bracelet serves as sort of relay baton between the runners.
Furthermore, Big Raven Yoga has been invited to help provide recovery services through the use of yoga at Ragnar’s Midwest events! So…if you happen to be in Duluth this weekend, or you’re looking for a super-fun road trip, you can join us and check out our new Ragnar collection live and in person!
