Memorial Day weekend curbside hours at Ragged Mountain: Saturday 8:30-3:30 and Monday 8:30-1:00. Plus, our online store continues to be open 24/7. Thanks so much for all your continued support!
We got you covered! New products arriving daily, all available for preorder now on our website! All masks arriving this week, and our new custom Cutaway gaiters hopefully arriving by week's end.
Some of you may ask what it will take for us to reconsider and open our doors again. Again, in all honesty, we're not quite sure. Certainly, a much more robust testing and contact tracing policy by our state and country. Everyone seems to agree that is the first step, and while we are certainly headed in that direction, we are still quite a ways off from where we need to be. Beyond that, the emergence of more effective treatment options, widespread antibody testing, and on the distant horizon, a vaccine (hopefully). There was a great article in the NYT yesterday about the two ends of a pandemic....the medical end, and the social end. The medical end is when incidence and death rates plummet, and the social end is when our collective fear wanes. Sadly, both of those seem like far off realities at this point.
Some of you may disagree with our decision, and see it as an overreaction. Hopefully it is. We respect that, and realize that there are many differing schools of thought on this...disagreement and the ability to express various view points is one of the tenets that makes our country so great! But hopefully, what we can all agree on is that despite all of this, we will still be "open" for business and ready to serve you moving forward until this has all passed.
Over the past two months, we have adapted to help our customers in a variety of ways, from phone and email to curbside pickups, socially distanced (10+ feet apart) try on stations, home deliveries (free!), and shipping (also free!). The 15% discount on everything in the store (except for Garmins and Theraguns) will continue indefinitely for every single customer.
We have even fit over 100 new customers via our virtual fitting process, and continue to have extremely good luck with that.
We continue to be humbled by the outpouring of support and loyalty that all of our customers continue to show, and we are thankful for each day that we get to serve you!
With continued gratitude,
There are several options to shop with us even with our "doors closed". Don't see something on our online shop that you would like, please inquire about its availability! We aim to continue giving you the very BEST service!
JUST ARRIVED! Perfectly sized, lightweight, breathable, wicking masks that are comfortable and protective! Great for exercising too! In a variety of colors and all are now up on our online shop.
Friday, March 13th seems like a lifetime ago. The decision to lock our doors that day was not one that we made lightly, but looking back, we're glad we did so. Since then, we have been absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and loyalty from all of our customers, both here in Charlottesville as well as scattered throughout the country. We are humbled by it all, and can't thank you enough for being such an integral part of our family business. Each day is a blessing, and we couldn't feel luckier to be a part of such a special community. Although we have no idea what the future holds, we will continue to be here each day to serve you and fulfill all your exercise needs. So, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank each of you who have kindly ordered from us since we "closed." We are truly grateful.

Congrats to our Ragged Mountain Winter Mileage Club participants! 229 folks ran 100 or more miles this winter!
Some fun facts: 68.4% of participants completed all their mileage outside and 28.2% logged over 400 miles.
Love the incentive for the community to stay active during the winter months.
This was such a great idea and so much fun! I made it a point to reach out to friends to join me logging the very early, dark chilly miles! Bravo to y'all for encouraging movement!
This was fun! I feel like we got lucky with some really unseasonably lovely winter weather.
This was awesome. I loved the program. I also talked about it every now and then so it spread the word about your store.
This was a great way to be held accountable for my running. What a great reward. Hope you will make this a yearly thing.
This was a fantastic challenge. Can't wait for your next one! Thank you, RMRS!
This was a fabulous idea, and it connected me with Ragged Mtn as I ran by myself this winter.
This is a great idea. Thank you for doing this and I hope you do it again.
That was super fun to see how many miles I tracked in a season! I have never added all those up before. Thank you for the motivation.
Thanks this was super motivating.
Thanks for the fun challenge!
Thanks for the carrot to help encourage running through the colder months! All my miles were logged on my Garmin watch, so let me know if you need to see the accounting :)
Thanks for putting this on -- fun way to prompt me to get out when it's below 0 with wind.
Thanks for providing another incentive to keep moving through the winter months!
Thanks for being a great source of motivation and inspiration in the running community!
Thank you so much for the winter challenge. It was a great motivator!
Thank you SO much for organizing, and for your AMAZING dedication to the running community of Charlottesville!!
Thank you for the winter motivation. It got me outside when what I really wanted to do was hibernate. I determined my mileage using Google Maps, and recorded each day's mileage in a notebook.
Thank you for all that you do for this community. You are the real stars.
Thank you for motivating us to keep on running.
Thank you for keeping me motivated in the cold and dark this winter. This is the hardest time for me to keep getting out. I probably wouldn't have tracked it otherwise so I am really pleasantly surprised that I almost hit 400 miles in these 3 months!
Thank you for inspiring this challenge! It helped with motivation to get outside during the winter months.
Thank you for helping me set a goal for the winter months!
Lower than I was hoping for, but this definitely motivated me to choose outside instead of gym on multiple occasions! 127.18 total mileage in that time frame.
Love this idea! Great to feel rewarded for a hobby I would already be engaging in :)
Love the winter mileage challenge! Can't wait to see y'all in Charlottesville this summer :)
It was really awesome to count my mileage during the winter, I actually surprised myself. So thanks for supporting us on Wednesday mornings at the track, weekly with Speedsters emails, and all the time with your presence in the Cville community to build a strong, healthy running scene.
Had a blast running in the winter mileage club! Thanks Ragged Mountain!
After Governor Northam's press conference today, we have made the decision to cease all of our home deliveries and curbside pickups immediately. Even though we have been following strict contactless guidelines with both of these activities the past 17 days, we don't think it's necessary for us to be out on the road, delivering packages much of the day. We will continue to ship orders and will still be here to answer your phone calls (9am-5pm), respond to emails and fulfill orders on our online store. All online orders will continue to receive a 15% discount and free shipping. We continue to be overwhelmed emotionally by the tremendous outpouring of support we’ve received from so many of you, our loyal customers, during this challenging time. We are so grateful to you. We wish the best to all of you, and will look forward to helping you in person on the other side of this all. Be safe!
