The Reachrace is a Shifter Holy Day that occurs during the last week of Lharvion. It is both a celebration and an athletics contest. During The Reachrace, Shifter communities come together and hold numerous races including a day long marathon on the last day of the week. Each community has varying traditions and preferences though in general the week begins with trials of strength and agility and ends with tests of endurance. Communities celebrate throughout the week, celebrating the winners of each event, overall victors for each day and a single champion for the entire event. Shifter travellers often take time off to visit a Shifter community to celebrate The Reachrace and those that are unable to become more competitive during the week. Shifter companions in adventuring parties often encourage their allies to take on challenging quests.
