Race Information

The Ragnar Relay is a multi stage, point to point team relay race covering hundreds of kilometers in one straight shot. Ragnar Reach the Beach is one of the oldest and longest relay races in the United States. The late summer/early fall race is ideal for runners who love fall foliage colours and the iconic New England east coast. Teams can choose to run the relay in regular distances (teams of 12) or the ultra option (teams of 6).

The race starts in Bretton Woods, where your team will run along alpine lakes, rolling hills, covered bridges and scenic expanses. From ski slopes to the beach, there’s nothing quite like New England in the fall, and you’ll get to experience every mile of it.

As the East Coast’s oldest running relay, this race boasts some of our best community support, with decorated exchanges, volunteers in full costume and even neighborhood block parties.

Finish the race at Hampton Beach, yes it’s really right on the beach, with your entire team crossing the finish line right along with you, cheering you on in celebration. Relax, together, while you dip your feet in the Atlantic Ocean to reflect on accomplishing what you could never do alone.
