Ragnar Relay Chicago was designed for runners who know how to have a good time. Join us in June where you’ll begin running in Madison, WI, right along the waterfront before your team heads across the smooth, runnable roads in the Midwest. Your team finishes under the shadow of the big city in downtown Chicago along the popular running destination at the waterfront pathway at the shore of Lake Michigan. From running under the stars to finishing with the sand between your toes, this race makes testing your limits a team sport and celebrating as a team a work of love! This race also qualifies for a double medal! Runners can ‘Make It A Double’ and earn extra bling when they conquer this Ragnar and Ragnar Relay Great River in the same year.
Unless you experience it, you cannot possibly understand the team bonding that takes place, or your ability to surpass your own running expectations. The memories that are made along the way are priceless. I can't describe the feeling as you cross the finish line together as a team. In a world where everyone is going in their own direction, it is nice to accomplish something as a team. It is so much more satisfying to do so!!!
