Ragnar Relay

The idea to run an overnight 24+ hour running relay across the mountains of Utah was a lifelong dream of Steve Hill. The dream became a reality in 2004 when Steve, his son Dan and Dans college roommate, Tanner Bell, organized the first Wasatch Back Relay, spanning 188 miles from Logan to Park City, UT. Starting small, the Ragnar Relay Series has grown from a single relay in Utah to the largest overnight relay series in the nation. Some call it a movement. We call it Ragnar.

Reebok Ragnar Relays are overnight relay races for teams of five to 10 friends. Team members split 170-ish miles of road running with the help of team support vehicles that transport runners to each exchange point. The course is broken down into 30 legs", so each teammate will run three legs with each leg ranging between 3 and 11 miles and varying in difficulty. And the race doesnt stop at sunset, so most run one leg in the dark. When youre not running youll be soaking in the scenery, cheering on your friends, grabbing some Zs, kicking back at the exchange points (where theres food, entertainment and gear) and building a monument of memories with your new BFFs.

24 hours running along the beautiful south coast of England. Enough said.
