Meet the people behind the relay

Our people

Without the dedicated support of our team, friends, ambassadors and supporters, who have volunteered hundreds of hours to help develop the United Relay of America, this epic journey would not be possible.

All of these extraordinary people continue to provide vital experience, knowledge and networks that have helped us make this event a reality. We are hugely grateful to each of you and look forward to your continued support for years to come!

James HayDirector and founder, United Relay of America

We've founded the United Relay of America to connect people who want to stand up and make a difference for a cause close to their heart. Whether you are an experienced ultra runner or this is your first event we welcome you into our family and hope that you love being part of relay history.
