Unforgettable scenery meets ultimate running challenge. Sounds intriguing (and fun and definitely worth doing), right? The 4th annual Ragnar Road Michigan is set for September 27-28. Have you signed up yet? We’ve got lots of great reasons for getting a group of friends together for this Michigan relay race.

Troy Wheeler, race director of this fall event, shares all the details — including the awesome bling that runners of both this race and the inaugural Ragnar Trail Michigan, which took place earlier this month, will receive once they cross the finish line. This road relay starts in Muskegon, Mich. and ends in Traverse City.

Troy and I also talk about the allure of this road relay — how it bonds runners and highlights so many beautiful routes and towns along the Lake Michigan shoreline — and what runners can expect when they take part in this race weekend. (Be sure to listen for a really great race discount code — $80 off your team entry!)

What do you get when you combine an overnight relay, sugar sand beaches, lighthouses and 12 adventurous friends? Ragnar Michigan Road. For two days and one star-filled night, run through the vibrant fall foliage, picturesque towns and along the sand dunes of Lake Michigan. And if that isn’t enough you’ll spend 9 legs with beautiful beach views.
