Team Herren Project Conquered the Pacific Northwest Ragnar

Countless stories shared and unlimited laughs equaled unforgettable memories as Team Herren Project conquered the Pacific Northwest Ragnar race July 9 and July 10, 2021!

The adventure began near the Canadian border in Blaine, WA, and took our 12 Herren Project teammates past famous sights including the glacial Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, Deception Pass, and the Puget Sound.

Ragnar Northwest Team

Our journey consisted of:

  • 2 Vans
  • 2 Drivers
  • 12 Teammates
  • 4 Coolers
  • 5 Cases of water
  • 12 Headlamps and safety vests
  • 200 Miles covered
  • Lots of snacks and coffee!

We passed iconic landmarks, breathtaking coastal views, and the peaceful Pacific Northwest scenery that lived up to its famous reputation. Each of our twelve runners took turns running relay-style for two days and one night. The whole team finished together in Langley, WA on Whidbey Island, where we celebrated an accomplishment we could not have done alone. Just like with recovery, we can do hard, life-changing things, TOGETHER.
