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 race is well organized and challenging, yet designed with leg division that allows runners of very different skill levels to be on the same team. But the very best part is the camaraderie with your team, running day and night, living in a van, and the cool jokes and laughter that are spawned by a little bit of over-tired delirium. I love the Ragnar experience.
