Route information
You and your team of 8 (or 4) runners go over the river and through woods to Ragnar Village, your home away from home for the long weekend. You’ll set up camp and prepare to conquer a series of three pristine trail loops, relay-style. As each runner sets off, you can expect to catch glimpses of the shimmering lake views of both Beaver Lake and Swift Creek Lake through the deep foliage. As the sun sets, the race doesn’t stop. Runners keep going beneath a canopy of (about) a billion stars overhead and watch the moon rise.LOOP DESCRIPTION:
This Loop leaves the Village along with the Red Loop, and takes you out to the main section of mountain bike trails in the park. After ¾ of a mile, you’ll split right from Red and the single-track adventure begins! The trail has a great flow, leaving you with a fleet feet feel. Around mile 2.5 the trail turns to double-track for a short bit before a quick turn that spits you back onto single-track down to Beaver Lake. For the next mile the trail is pretty constant, offering some great views of the lake. Before you know it, you’ll re-join Red , cross the spillway and climb back up to the Village.
What's included
You will be sent a fully detailed Runner's Pack, including all vital information you will need for the weekend!

Team captains can check-in to the race at the HQ Tent on Thursday anytime after the venue opens to teams OR on Friday two hours before their teams' assigned start time. Captains should know their team number ahead of time, and have that number handy to provide to volunteers during check-in. Upon check-in, the team captain will receive the team bib (also the timing chip), a bib-belt, volunteer shift reminder w/ instructions, confirmation of the team division/classification, shirt tickets for each runner on the team’s roster, Friday night dinner tickets for each runner on the team’s roster, a trash and recycle liner to be used at the team’s campsite, and some other goodies. Teams will not be allowed to change their division/classification after they complete the check-in process.
Ragnar 's logo
The idea to run an overnight 24+ hour running relay across the mountains of Utah was a lifelong dream of Steve Hill. The dream became a reality in 2004 when Steve, his son Dan and Dan’s college roommate, Tanner Bell, organized the first Wasatch Back Relay, spanning 188 miles from Logan to Park City, UT. Starting small, the Ragnar Relay Series has grown from a single relay in Utah to the largest overnight relay series in the nation. Some call it a movement. We call it Ragnar.

Spectator Info
When you’re not running, you’ll be partying with your team and other runners at Ragnar Village - think campfire stories, s’mores, live music, round the clock food vendors (no joke) and even time to roll out those sore legs.
What to bring
Trail Running Gear and Camping Gear
Trail running is different than road running and thus the gear needed changes. Check out a list of essential trail running and camping gear for the event on the race webpage in the Updates and Training sections.
Headlamp – Every person (runner, friends, family, crew, etc) at the race should have a good headlamp. We recommend one with 70 lumens or more. Water Container – Every runner should run with a water container of some sort. Some of the loops will have water stations but all will be CUPLESS WATERSTATIONS.
This event currently has no reviews, why not be the first? You could help someone find their perfect event.
