Ask members of the 2011 EAD Ragnar Relay Team and they’ll tell you running from Madison, Wis. t0 downtown Chicago relay-style with 12 members of our community was 200 miles of crazy, unexpected fun.
Registration for the 2012 Ragnar Relay / Team EAD is now open. The 2012 event is June 8 & 9. We’re looking for at least 24 people who find enjoyment in running three times over 26 hours (distances of 3 to 10 miles per run, with a total distance per runner of 10 to 20 miles), riding in a 15-person passenger van, operating on little (if any) sleep, and sharing a memorable experience with your fellow EAD athletes. Plus, when else will you run with a headlamp? Not a runner, but still want to get involved? We also need at least four drivers, and other support personnel.
Secure your spot on the 2012 EAD Ragnar Relay Team with a $100 deposit (made payable to Elite Athletic Development and due no later than February 19.) Additional charges for race support — van rental, gas, food, etc. — will be assessed after the event, and should run less than $100, based on 2011 figures.
