The Blue Ridge Relay 2024

The Blue Ridge Relay (BRR) is one of the longest running relay races in the United States, taking place in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. This year, People Launching will be entering two teams: a team of 12 and a team of 6 that will each cover approximately 208 miles.

In 2021, we entered our first ever team and placed 25th out of 173 teams. In 2022, we entered two teams with the goal of raising $20,000; and we met our goal! In 2023, our Ultra 6-man team placed in the top 20 teams overall! This year, we're back for more, entering two teams with the goal of raising $20,000! 


By sponsoring a member of the People Launching BRR team, you are also partnering with People Launching as a fundraiser to the burned out leaders and church planters that are low on resources, high on need, and desire clarity and health. Thank you for partnering with us!
