Round up 11 of your closest friends (or a bunch of fleet-footed acquaintances), pile into two vans, and spend the next 18 to 36 hours running, sweating, and stinking across 200 miles of pavement. Thatís the Ragnar Relay, created in 2004 and named for a 9th century, adventure-seeking Norse Viking. These days, Ragnar events are held all over the U.S., attracting those who donít mind sleep deprivation and automobiles with an air of body odor. Runners split the race into shifts that are between 3 and 8 miles in length. Teams launch between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. on a Friday and the majority finish between 25 and 32 hours later.
