Ragnar Relay Chicago is the best of both worlds; a little bit of country and a little bit of rock and roll. From iconic red barns and dairy farms to the alluring gleam of sky scrapers on the waterfront of Lake Michigan, Ragnar Relay Chicago is a race that has it all! Ragnarians will start the 200ish mile journey in Madison, WI on beautiful Lake Monona. From there the course runs past dancing corn fields and big open skies that envelope runners in a blanket of stars during the magical night run. Sunrise views of Lake Michigan awake your inner wild as you tackle one of the fastest courses in the Ragnar Relay Series. Mile after magnificent mile, teams will run in concert with the heartbeat of the Windy City for a big city finish in downtown Chi Town.
The first race I ever entered as a new runner was a Ragnar and was such a a huge feeling of accomplishment. Also, with each team I have been on I have been able to forge strong relationships that would not have been possible in other circumstances. It's a unique bonding experience as each member supports and encourages their team members. It's amazing and inspiring to see how each team member overcomes the challenges that are unique to a Ragnar race. It's a great way to test your mettle and have a crazy, fun time in the process!
