Ragnar Midwest (formerly known as Ragnar Chicago) is coming to town in May! And I need 11 more ‘wild’ and crazy runners to complete a Wild Team!

In case you aren’t familiar with what a Ragnar Relay is, Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. You and 11 other crazy teammates pile into two vans and tag-team running 200(ish) miles, day and night, relay-style. Only one runner hits the road at a time. Each person runs three legs of varying distances and degrees of difficulty. It takes most teams somewhere in the neighborhood of 25-35 consecutive hours to complete this challenge.

When you’re not running you’re… 

A) in the van, dropping runners, cheering them on, picking them up, rinse and repeat. 

Or B) resting with the rest of your team at in a Ragnar Village Checkpoint awaiting the other van’s arrival. 


Any level of runner can come conquer a Ragnar Relay, we suggest that a 5k distance be manageable before starting the provided training plan.
