Skip the packing stress
Come to Ragnar in a relaxed way, without your tent. A Click Camp tent, sleeping bag, air mattress, cot, and chairs are waiting for you. You just show up and focus on the important things: your team and the race.
How it works
It's just like a hotel. All you have to do is reserve your tent, check-in with our on site hosts, and then check out.
When you arrive on-site Click Camp will have a private area where you are greeted by one of our hosts. The hosts will quickly confirm your reservation then walk you to your tent accommodations. To make your return trip to your tent easier we have identified your tent with a small placard.
When you finish running your race make your way back to your tent and we will help you with check out when you're ready.
With Click Camp there is no clean-up, no storing, no wondering where you'll sleep, and most importantly a good night's rest so you can run your best race.
Your accommodations include
Getting a good night's rest the night before or catching some shut eye between loops ensures you will run your best race. With this in mind we have focused our accommodations around making you comfortable.
So you can sleep well we use top of the line equipment and clean it after every use.
Adventure is moments away when you set up the Coleman® Signal Mountain™ 6-Person Instant Tent. If it rains, the WeatherTec™ system with its patented welded floors and inverted seams will help you stay dry. Additionally, a door awning helps to keep the water out. A ground vent increases air circulation to help you stay cool and comfortable. Illumiline™ reflective guy lines are more visible so you don't get tripped up if you need to take a walk at night. Inside, there's enough room to stretch out on two queen-sized airbeds.
Take the comfort of an indoor bed with you when you sleep outside on the Coleman® Airbed Cot. The ComfortStrong™ coil system provides all-night support. It is more than a place to sleep with a side table with cup holder to easily place your drink, a snack, a magazine or personal items. A sewn-in cover keeps the airbed in place on the strong steel frame.
Sleep comfortably under the stars in the Coleman® Aspen Meadows™ 30 Sleeping Bag, even when it’s 30 °F outside. You'll stay comfy with lightweight Coletherm® hollow polyester insulation and the Thermolock™ draft tube helping to keep your body heat in the bag. The Comfort Cuff™ design makes sure you only have soft fabric around your face while you sleep. Thanks to the ZipPlow™ zipper, you'll get snag-free opening and closing every time. A few small things, such as gloves or a flashlight, will fit inside the interior tuck pocket.
Take comfort with you to the campsite with a Coleman® Broadband™ Quad Chair. The mesh back allows the breeze to cool you on hot days while you enjoy a refreshing drink from the convenient mesh cup holder. The strong steel frame will make sure you'll always have a great seat, season after relaxing season.
Otter Creek Recreation Area Camping Situation
Ragnar Trail Kentuckiana-KY presented by Salomon was created for those with an adventurous spirit. Your team of 8 (or 4) will come together in early April to conquer a series of three single track trails that start and finish at Ragnar Village. The overnight trail running relay starts on Friday at Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area, a hidden gem located close to Fort Knox, and outside of the city lights of Louisville. You'll earn your views of the Ohio River and see clear into Indiana at this uniquely situated location. The green, yellow, and red loops meander through thick green forests and twist along clear creeks. This venue features the perfect mix of technical rocky and rooted surfaces and trails covered with soft, forgiving pine needles.
The soil in Kentucky is heavily clay based. Additionally, there is about a 50% chance of rain during this time of the year. So, you should plan for mud, lots of mud. This means you would be wise to bring additional socks to accommodate wet terrain. Additionally, it can be slippery so be sure to keep your situational awareness up.
Spiders: The Fort KNox area has a large population of insects and with those insects comes spiders. Spiders in the area, such as Black Widow and Brown Recluse, do pose a significant hazard. The following are some best practices:
- Check bedding before using.
- Check clothing, socks, and shoes before wearing. People do receive bites on the toe as they put their shoes on in the morning. Don't store your shoes outside.
- Avoid sleeping or leaving clothes near damp places; dampness attracts these creatures.
- Be situationally aware when you step into or near shade or a bush.
- If you do feel an insect or spider crawling on you, remain calm and be still (cry alone when no one else is watching). Sudden movement can cause it to react.
- If you are bitten, stay calm and visit the medical tent for appropriate treatment.
Ticks: Ticks are plentiful in this area. The following are some best practices for dealing with ticks:
- Proper application of bug repellent is a good mitigation tool, but by no means is a guarantee.
- Avoid thickets, grassy fields, and generally laying on the ground near said areas. Stick to the trails.
- Finding a tick can be a time consuming process, but well worth the effort as they can carry diseases passable to humans. When looking for ticks know that they can be anywhere. They prefer areas which are warm and snug to the body or near heavy blood areas. Unfortunately this does include area that don't often see the daylight (yep those areas). Simply conduct a full body look after running, and get a friend to look at your back.
- If you find a tick be sure to visit the medical tent on site to have it removed. Simply removing the tick yourself can lead to the head of the body being stuck and potentially causing infection.
Snakes: Among the 32 snake species found in Kentucky, four are venomous. So, DON'T TOUCH/HARASS/TEASE THE SNAKES. The poisonous snakes include the Copperhead, Western Cottonmouth, Timber Rattlesnake, and the Western Pygmy Rattlesnake. All of these snakes belong in the group known as "pit vipers". The following are some best practices:
- Walk carefully, especially off an established path.
- Be carefule where you place your hands when climbing or when lifting objects from the ground.
- NEVER TEASE OR PICK UP A SNAKE.
- Avoid sudden motion when placing your hands or feet near an area, especially one which may conceal a snake.
- If you do receive a bit, try to kill the snake or get a good mental image of the snake. Bringing the body or head back to the medical team will help determine medical treatment.
- Always seek medical attention if you have been bitten.
Deer: Deer are generally abundant in the Fort Knox area to include Otter Creek Recreational Area. If you should encounter a deer, appreciate it, but appreciate from a distance. Let the animal move on in peace.
The local area is heavily dominated by coniferous and deciduous trees. Visibility will be limited in areas, but should provide good cover from the sun and unforeseen weather.
Temperature: Historical averages show that with reasonable confidence we can predict a high of about 63 and a low of about 43. This temperature should be perfect for running. As for camping you will likely need to bring warmer clothing to be suitable for both camping and relaxing in cooler temperatures.
- Clothing: Clothing will likely need to be layered warm in order to allow for removal directly prior to your leg.
- Camping: Sleeping on the ground significantly reduces heat retention. With Click Camp's camping product you will be off the ground on one of our comfortable cots.
Humidity: The relative humidity typically ranges from 44% (comfortable) to 87% (very humid) over the course of April. Fortunately, on average, the air is driest around April 10th.
- Dew point is often a better measure of how comfortable a person will find the weather than relative humidity beccause it more directly relates to wheter perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Over the course of a typical April, the dew point typically varies from 31 degree (dry) to 53 degrees (very comfortable).
Winds: Over the course of April typical wind speeds vary from 3 MPH to 16 MPH, rarely exceeding 23 MPH. Winds are most common from the South and South West.
Precipitation: The average probability that some form of precipitation will be observed in the month of April is 50%. The most common form of precipitation is light to moderate rain. Additionally, there is a historical average of 20% chance of a thunderstorm. Luckily for you, all your equipment is already set-up so you don't have to worry about setting up in the rain.
