About This Event

"There is magic when we come together and accomplish something we could never do alone."

At Back on My Feet we see this every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5:45am when volunteers from the community come together with individuals experiencing homelessness to run side by side and support each other mile by mile. The Ragnar Relay is an inventive and transformational race that does just that, it gives runners the chance to run on a 12 person team, for two days, together conquering a 200 miles relay race that no one could accomplish alone.

Reebok Ragnar Chicago is the best of both worlds; a little bit of country and a little bit of rock and roll. From iconic red barns and dairy farms to the alluring waterfront of Lake Michigan, Ragnar Chicago is a race that has it all! Ragnarians will start the 200ish mile journey in Madison, WI on beautiful Lake Monona. From there the course runs past dancing corn fields and big open skies that envelop runners in a blanket of stars during the magical night run. Sunrise views of Lake Michigan awake your inner wild as you tackle one of the fastest courses in the Ragnar Relay Series. Runners will celebrate their feat Ragnar-style, with sand in their toes at Montrose Beach. To really see what it is all about check out this video.
