All Ragnar Relays have been deleted from the RelayGuide calendar. Here is why.
RelayGuide recently received an email from the Race Director of the RelaisXtrene Relay Race in Quebec that included this:
"We started to work on our project in 2012. We first wanted to associate with Ragnar. They came here in Quebec City to meet. We showed them our project and routes: They were very enthusiastic. We found out a few month latter they tried to go around us with their partners, so we rushed to start the relay on our own. That proved the be a huge success. The only thing that saved us was the language and country barrier."
Ragnar Relays pulled the same end around on The Relay in California, and tried to do the same thing in Colorado.
Therefore, we have removed all their races from our calendar and urge runners to support race directors who operate in an ethical manner.
