Ragnar Trail Appalachians, WV

Big Bear Lake Camplands


Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, Big Bear Lake is one of those places you didn't know you were looking for until you found it.

From 5,000 acres of pristine trail running, we carefully selected roughly 15 miles of Appalachian badassery for you and your team. This trail running Mecca provides you with some of the most exciting and challenging trails on the east coast. The trifecta of incredible trail loops will leave you wondering when you can run at Big Bear Lake again.

Ragnar Trail Appalachians is part of the Double Medal Series. Run both Ragnar Relay Washington DC and Ragnar Trail Appalachians-WV and earn the Mudslinger Double Medal.
