Ragnar Relay New England
May 21-22, 2010
New Haven to Boston, MA
Yale and Harvard. Beantown and Yalies. You and 11 of your closest friends (or soon to be closest friends) running day and night. Starting in the Constitution State of Connecticut, your team of 12 runners will embark on a 180 mile adventure-fest. The party in your van will only get better as you leap frog your way up north through some of the most scenic and historical towns this country has to offer. You'll feel the comradarie and team spirit as your team pushes the limits on endurance and stamina to finish in "The City of Higher Learning,"BOSTON. AN EASY 198
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 participants can choose which legs they run. This unique relay format makes the Boston Ragnar an accessible race for beginners yet challenging enough for the most competitive.
LOAD 'EM UP MOVE 'EM OUT
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.
