The United Relay of America is the world’s first triple-route coast-to-coast nonstop running relay launching in Los Angeles with a 5K on May 8 at 8:00 a.m. in Palisades Park, Santa Monica Beach.
Runners will set off from Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and meet in New York City, carrying three batons nearly 12,000 miles, across 33 states over the course of 39 days, in the three unbroken chains. In the process, awareness and an estimated $1.5 million will be raised for a score of deserving charities, including children’s hospitals across the nation.
