The 200-mile, 24-hour relay. If you hang around this blog for just a couple of minutes, it’ll quickly become clear that I’m pretty obsessed. So obsessed, that I decided it was time to collect all my relay-related posts into one place where my love for the greatest race in the world can be clearly documented.

Scroll down to read recaps of the relays I’ve run since starting the blog in March 2010.


If you have questions about relays, are looking for a teammate for a relay you are running, or just want to talk relays with another crazy runner, leave a comment below or send me an email. I promise it’s one of my favorite running things to talk about.

  1. Do you know of anyone needing a teammate for a Ragnar Relay coming up? It really doesn’t matter which one, I just want to run one this year : )

  2. I’m hoping you can help! I love relays. The only one I have done is the River to River Relay in Illinois, but I’ve done that one about 15 times over the last 20 years. I want to try and find a 200 miler that I can do. My problem is that I coach cross country and track, which means I’m not able to do something like this at all during the months of March, April, May, August, September, October, or early November. I have to find one that is either in the summer time or the winter. Do you know of any that are??? Thanks!
