The Ragnar is a 200 mile relay race from Chicago IL to Madison Wi. All the miles are split among a 12 member team. The team is then split into two groups of 6. Each team rides in a van the length of the course., picking up a runner who just finished their stretch, and dropping off the next runner to start theirs.
I had 3 stretches, 4 miles, 5 miles, and 6 miles. It was really interesting running through streets, hills, trails, paths, and fields at all time of the day. The race started at 6am on Friday, and ended at about 4pm on Saturday. It was difficult but we all pushed on and every member completed their portion of the 200 miles. The horse pony didn't die!
