200 miles. 24 hrs. 1 Wild Adventure to Reach the Beach.
200 miles in 24 hours. 5,800 runners from around the globe. One big adventure.
See Runnovation happen as Team NB athletes take on longest distance relay race in the United States, the New Balance Reach the Beach Relay, this weekend in New Hampshire.
Beginning on Friday morning at Cannon Mountain in Franconia, NH one runner starts the race as the rest of their team piles into vans to meet down the road at the first relay hand off. They take turns running different legs as the course winds across the state. With little sleep and running through the night, it's 24 hours straight of adrenaline and fun until the last runner crosses the finish line at Hampton Beach.
Now in its fifteenth year, this unique event has grown from a handful of daring runners to 490 teams including amateur and elite runners.
