Changing lives and covering miles one step at a time.


Meet the 12 runners! Spread throughout the United States from San Diego to Maine, these former strangers became united through blogs, social media, and friends-of-friends when race-enthusiast Rik Akey teamed with popular health blogger Katie Foster to form a very special Ragnar Relay team. Their vision was to bring together a team of people who shared the common bond of losing and keeping off a significant amount of weight through running.

In January 2013, the team ran the 200-mile Ragnar Relay race from Miami to Key West, FL. The race took over 30 hours to complete. This journey was captured in the documentary film From Fat to Finish Line.
