Our Madison-to-Chicago adventure, June , is just one of 12 Ragnar road relay races nationally they also have a trail series with even more races. This Midwest race alone is expected to draw more than teams, or approximately 6, participants. A team of 12 runners divides into two groups of six and makes a base camp, if you will, in two big vans or SUVs and drives to Warner Park in Madison for the starting line. The first six runners in the first van start the legs of the race; the second van drives ahead down the course. Only one runner is on the road at a time. So, Runner No.

After I ran Ragnar—and especially after I showered and slept—I found myself encouraging anyone with the slightest interest to go for it. Ragnar works — The logistics, the relay hand-offs, the running three times in 36 hours, the lack of sleep—it all works out. The Ragnar people know their stuff. Follow the rules and trust the process and enjoy the adventure. Do your best, but focus on encouraging your teammates instead of worrying about how you compare. Decorate your van.
Ragnar Relay Sayings & Slogans
Our goal was only to have fun and there were walks, but we still came in 18th out 92 finishing teams! Just in time for my 37th birthday my knee seems to have recovered and I set out to remind myself I could indeed still enjoy a sleepless night surrounded by girlfriends…I just did it in a sweaty van instead of Vegas! I was thinking about who would be a ridiculous amount of fun and enjoy running in some cool new places.
Join the Team! Find a Participant. What is Ragnar? Each person will run 3 times over the course of the event, completing any where from miles in total. There may be little sleep involved, but it's a "hole" lot of fun!
