Seven runners from Team Unangenehm ran a 380 km relay from Berlin to Hamburg. Here they share what they learned and give you some tips on planning your own DIY relay race.
Midday heat, 38 degrees celsius - we're running. Sunset, 29 degrees celsius - we're running. Absolute darkness at 3 a.m. - we're running. What sounds like a military drill was actually our idea of fun – a 33-hour, 7-person relay run from Berlin to Hamburg covering 380 km. Oh, and it just happened to fall on the hottest weekend of the year. Sounds crazy, and it was! But, with races on hold and the summer on the brink of fading into winter in the Northern Hemisphere we were looking for a way to push ourselves and recreate that race day magic, banter and all! Here we’re sharing our advice to help you set up your own relay challenge with your friends or local running club. And it doesn't have to be a long distance adventure like ours to be just as fun!
