Race Information

The Ragnar Relay is a multi stage, point to point team relay race covering hundreds of kilometers in one straight shot. 

Your team will kick off the journey in Waukegan, just outside of Chicago, and head north past epic views of Lake Michigan. You’ll run through the countryside by lakes and over rolling hills with a billion stars lighting your way. 

In the cool, spring air you’ll watch the sun come up as you zoom past picturesque red barns, happy cows, and quintessential Midwest scenery. Your whole team finishes together, tired and triumphant at the Ragnar finisher's party in the city of Madison. Your team medals, bragging rights, and endless memories await!

Don't miss the challenge that will have you saying, "I can't believe we're doing this," and "When can we do this again?" in the same, tired breath!
