Ragnar Relay Series Las Vegas
October 23-24, 2010
Valley of Fire to Las Vegas, NV
Imagine this: RED ROCK, then VIEWS OF THE STRIP at night, then more RED ROCK. You and 11 of your closest friends running relay-style day and night. Starting in the red rock oasis of VALLEY OF FIRE State Park, your team of 12 maniacs will be embarking on a 195 MILE ADVENTURE-FEST sure to fill all of your desires. The party in your van will only get better as you leap frog your way past the breathtaking views of LAKE MEAD, stunning views of the strip at night and then catch glimpses of Mt Charleston as you run through SPRING MOUNTAIN NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, then it's onto the majestic cliffs of RED ROCK CANYON The race (and your stamina) will wrap up at RED ROCK RESORT AND CASINO in the one and only city of sin, LAS VEGAS, NV.
Running three legs during a 24-hour relay race is much easier than you think. Each team member runs three legs, ranging between 3 and 8 miles. This relay race is physically demanding, but legs vary in difficulty, and runners can choose their legs. This unique relay format makes the Ragnar Relay Las Vegas an accessible race for beginners yet challenging enough for the most competitive.
How do you get from one exchange to the next? Each team is allowed two support vehicles. The first vehicle will drop off the first runner, drive ahead a few miles, cheer the runner on, and provide them with water, snacks, and plenty of love. That vehicle will then drive ahead to the first exchange point to drop off the second runner and pick up the first runner when that leg is complete. They will repeat this pattern for six legs until they hand off to their second vehicle. This leapfrogging pattern will continue all the way to the finish line.
