The Southern California Ragnar Relay will feature two teams of former “The Biggest Loser” contestants.
Sione Fa, a Biggest Loser contestant from season seven, will captain the blue team (his color on the show), and season 10’s Brendan Donavan will captain the black team. Both teams are made up of former Biggest Loser contestants with four exceptions. Two runners on each team will be fans who tell their stories at www.ragnarrelay.com. Officials will fly the four lucky runners to San Diego, put them up in a hotel and then let them run on one of the two teams during the Southern California Ragnar on April 15-16.
Both men said races help keep them motivated in their training and with their weight loss goals in an interview on KSL last night. Neither of them have ever run a long-distance relay, although Fa said he was in Utah and witnessed the largest endurance relay, Wasatch Back.
