The Ultra Relay is an annual, 18 person, relay run stretching 3,100 miles across America for the MS cause.
The Relay begins each year in April near Los Angeles, CA and finishes in August in New York, NY. Our relay runners are selected via our online application process to participate as an individual segment runner as a part of the 18 segment relay.
To participate each runner commits to fundraising $10,000 over ten months and to running approximately 160 miles over 6 consecutive days during his or her assigned relay segment. There are 18 segments total spanning from LA to New York, thus 18 runners on a relay team. Once selected each runner spends months training and fundraising with in depth help from the organization prior to the event’s start as they prepare to devote one week on the road while completing their segment’s miles. They are aided on the road by the organization’s road crew team. Each runner’s segment is logistically coordinated back-to-back as a part of the collective team effort to run across America. Donations raised support the organization’s mission to raise awareness of the MS disease, aid research for a cure, and to help those living with disability due to MS.
