The Relay


The MS Run the US – Relay is an annual 3,100-mile relay run across America for the MS cause.
The Relay begins each year mid-April near Los Angeles, CA and finishes mid-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 Relay team.
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 prior to the event as they prepare to devote one week on the road with the nonprofit while completing their segment’s miles. Each runner’s segment is logistically coordinated back-to-back as a part of the collective team effort to run 3,100-miles over the duration of 4.5 months. Proceeds are given to fund research for a cure through the National MS Society and the Center Without Walls, and to assist those living with disability from MS.
