Ragnar Relay: Northwest Passage
Jul 19, 2013 @ 6:00 am - Jul 20, 2013 @ 7:00 pm
Teams of 12 runners tag off for an around-the-clock relay race. Only one teammate runs at a time, and each participant runs three times, with each leg ranging between 3–8 miles and varying in difficulty. While one person is running, the rest of the teammates are on support duty in a race van, which drives ahead to the next exchange to cheer the runner on and get the next runner to the exchange point.
Northwest Passage runs from Blaine, WA to Langley, WA – a distance of 196 miles. The start line is Peace Arch Park in Blaine and the finish line is Island County Fairgrounds in Langley. Festive exchange parties occur at five venues in between, including Bellingham High School, Burlington-Edison High School, La Conner High School, Oak Harbor High School and Coupeville High School.
