Day of the Girl Challenge


Give these Girls a Relay!

Ragnar has met an inspiring, talented group of girls that are trying to build their own long-distance relay in Bekoji, Ethiopia.

To help make that dream a reality, we are hosting a new Ragnar Challenge on Oct. 11, 2018 The International Day of the Girl. This challenge supports Girls Gotta Run - the non-profit organization that provides opportunities to these girls in Bekoji to use running and education to empower themselves and their communities.

The funds raised for the Day of the Girl Challenge will be used to help the Bekoji girls host their own relay in early 2019.

MEET THE CHARITY

Girls Gotta Run


Girls Gotta Run Foundation invests in girls who use running and education to empower themselves and their communities in Ethiopia. GGRF is the only non-profit organization in Ethiopia using the national sport of running as an innovative approach to creating safe spaces, preventing early marriage and expanding access to secondary school for vulnerable girls. GGRF has been investing in girls and their families to create long-term paths for self-reliance and financial resiliency in Ethiopia since 2006. Click here to learn more and support their efforts.

OUR GOAL

We'll run together, so they can run together


We need 1,500 people to run 5.7 miles each and collectively we’ll run 8,624 miles — the distance from the Ragnar Headquarters in Salt Lake City, UT to Bekoji, Ethiopia. Take that special girl — your friend, your running partner, your wife, your daughter —  and log some miles together on Oct 11. Your registration fee will help the Bekoji girls have a relay of their own.
