What is Ragnar?
Ragnar Relays are running relay races of around 200 miles. This year’s race will take place on May 17th and 18th. Starting in Chicago, we take turns running different distances all the way to Madison, WI. There are 12 people on a team. There are 36 legs so we each athlete takes three legs. Each person will be assigned a runner number from 1-12. We will split the team into 2 vans of six runners. Runners from van 1 will take their turns running while van 2 is at the check point resting and having fun. Once van 1 is done with all the exchanges the teams switch. This leap frogging continues all the way to the finish line in Madison.

Live Grit will take care of the logistics so all you have to do is show up and have fun. There will be designated drivers for each van, which we will coordinate. Food is up to each athlete, but at lots of the exchanges there are food options.
