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!
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.
Being a part of this relay event has given me the opportunity to fulfill my passion for event management. The United Relay team are great and I’ve loved getting to know our participants and supporters! Can’t wait to meet our runners and cyclists in person when we launch this crazy coast-to-coast relay!
The United Relay of America is an initiative of Concern Universal and as CEO Kathryn continually aims to push boundaries and move people’s lives forward positively. Kathryn has been involved in human rights campaigning and international development management for over nine years.
