Run around the moon?

On May 10th, 2017 we will run around the moon. More than 1,000 participants will each run 6.7 miles under the light of the full moon, and together our cumulative total – 6,783 miles – will be enough to run around the entire circumference of our nearest galactic neighbor. 

At Ragnar, we're all about doing things together that we could never do alone. While most of our events are at beautiful locations across the globe, we've resolved to tackle a challenge that is out-of-this-world. 

*UPDATE*  Our Chase The Moon shirts and medals are sold out! But that doesn’t mean you can’t join us in our quest to run around the moon. See if there's a #ChaseTheMoon group run near you. Enter your email address below and let us know you’ll be doing the moon-walk run on May 10th!

200 MILES OF THE HARDEST FUN YOU'LL EVER HAVE: Round up a crew for the biggest running party of the year. Friday morning of Reebok Ragnar Chicago starts at Madison's beautiful Lake Monona. Runners head for the forested Glacial Drumlin State Trail passing through beaucolic, Wisconsin dairyland on the way. Race through the night, catching ZZZs where you can until your team reaches an unforgettable sunrise on Lake Michigan. Finish up the final legs of the race on backroads skirting Lake Michigan until you reach the Chicago finish line party on Saturday afternoon. 

  • Commit to run 6.7 miles under the full moon (rain or shine) on the night of May 10, 2017.
  • Gather some friends or find a group run near you on our Facebook event page or join our Strava Club.
  • On May 10th, Chase The Moon! Post a picture of yourself (and anyone running with you) with the hashtag #ChaseTheMoon so the rest of the Ragnar Tribe can cheer you on!

How it works


  • I signed up, now what?
    Join our Facebook event page or the Strava Club to get updates and connect with other Ragnarians embarking on this journey.
  • When do I get my shirt and medal?
    We'll send them directly to you. The shirt and medal will arrive after we've made it around the moon. (But maybe, if you're lucky, they'll show up early.)
  • Can I run alone?
    Ragnar is all about doing things together. Find someone to sign up with you and enjoy the moonlight together. Check out the Facebook event page and see if there are (or build your own) Chase The Moon group runs in your city. Running at night can be a bit spooky, so we encourage you to run with a friend, but if you'd prefer to go solo, remember that the rest of the Ragnar Tribe will be running with you in spirit across the globe.
  • Where should I run?
    Map out a 6.7 route on the trails, around the park or in your neighborhood. We encourage participants to get their friends to join them and go on a group run.
  • Do I have to run at night or can it be during the day?
    We challenge you to complete the 6.7 run at night. Make your world feel a little smaller by knowing you’re running with 1,000(ish) Ragnrains from across the world. Wear a headlamp, safety vest and taillight, and invite your friends to join you.
  • What if I want to participate but there are no spots left?
    Run with us! You can still join us as part of the global event, but only the first 1,000(ish) registrants will receive the one of a kind Chase The Moon Ragnar t-shirt and medal. Sign up now before those spots are gone!
  • How do you know if I actually ran my 6.7 miles?
    Yea, we are actually that trusting. We've got enough backup runners to cover for the few who drop out, but we're trusting you to follow up and put in your miles. You're the one who has to wake up the next morning and look at yourself in the mirror. Don't let us down.

Run with us!

What you get

  • The satisfaction of knowing you joined 999 other devoted Ragnarians in doing something strange and wonderful. Who else can say they PRd a planetary object?
  • A sweet participant medal that includes a bottle opener (of course) glow-in-the-dark enamel and a little Ragnar logo that slides around the moon. You will love it!
  • A custom participant t-shirt because if you're going to run around the moon, you should get some bragging rights.

Enter your email below to let us know if you'll be running with us and we'll send you updates about the challenge. Join our Facebook event page to see if there are #ChaseTheMoon group runs near you. You can also join our Strava Club to see what routes other space cadets are enjoying.

We won't ever sell your info, that's just not cool. Check out our privacy policy if that sort of thing interests you.
