Ragnar Relay racers run both day and night while changing athletes. Runners race through scenic landscapes and unique destinations, culminating in more than 200 miles. Each runner in a group of 12 will average about 11 miles over the course of the relay, while “ultra” teams of six runners will run about 24 miles each.

Choose from trail and relay race destinations such as Cape Cod, Napa Valley, Southern California and the Pocono Mountains. Teams of six to12 adults range $120–180 per person. The money supports partnering charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Child Abuse Prevention Center.
