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.
We love the comraderie that happens at Ragnar, and the difficulty of completing this kind of race. This along with how well the event is organized makes for an incredible accomplishment. Ragnar motivates my wife and I to continue to work hard at getting better and healthier especially when life gets in the way. With four kids life is ALWAYS getting in the way. Ragnar gives us a goal and success we feel at the finish inspires us to work harder and return.
