Ragnar Trail Wawayanda Lake


Way way up in Wawayanda—NYRR and Ragnar bring you the newest East Coast Ragnar Trail Relay: Ragnar Trail Wawayanda Lake in association with New York Road Runners. Located about 50 miles outside the lights of New York City is a hidden gem called Wawayanda (pronounced wah - way - yanda) State Park.

This northern New Jersey venue features a serene lake surrounded by forested hills, and a long stretch of the Appalachian Trail. Teams of eight (or four) members will run relay-style over two days and one night to conquer a set of single-track trails that start and stop at Ragnar Village.

Runners will set up camp on the shores of Wawayanda Lake. When the sun goes down, runners will revive and experience the party vibe. Ragnar Trail is like summer camp for adults, with beer, bonfires, s’mores, and a kickass finisher medal. Mark your running calendar for Sept. 30–Oct. 1 and be prepared to find your #innerWILD.

Be sure to include your NYRR member number when you register, and enter the promo code WL16MNYRRTEN to save 10% on your registration fee.

This race counts toward our 9+1 program for runners. Volunteer credit is not available for this event.

Read the Ragnar Trail Guide for lots of helpful info. For specific questions, contact [email protected], call 801-499-5024, or call the toll-free 877-83-RELAY.

One person registers the team and pays in full, and then recruits thrill-seeking friends and family to join the journey. And don't forget the snacks!
