About
Grab your camping gear and come along on an epic running adventure out in the desert of McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Teams of 8 will spend two days and one—or two—star-filled nights running 3 beautiful trail loops for 120-ish miles, relay-style. These single-track trails are perfect for all levels of runner and are so sublime you’ll be dreaming about them for weeks. If the trails alone don’t get you hooked, the majestic mountain views and cacti lined sunsets in this desert oasis will do the trick.

Green Loop – Shallmo Wash Trail (Easy):
Distance: 4.10 miles
Elevation Gain: 265.27 feet
Flat-ish, fast-ish, and super fun to run—who says it isn’t easy being green? Green loop starts off with the red loop, splitting off just short of a mile to take you along the lower scenic trail. The first half of this loop offers a climb so subtle, you’ll swear you’re on flat ground. After meeting up briefly with red again, green takes off down a brand new trail paralleling Shallmo Wash. Speedsters will have fun bombing down this loop, while the rest of us can sit back, relax, and enjoy the gentle rollers all the way back into the village.
Yellow Loop – T-Bone Ridge (Intermediate):
Distance: 4.70 miles
Elevation Gain: 499.93 feet
This year, yellow starts off with a climb up T-Bone Ridge. Intense but short, the view from the top of the Ridge is your first reward; we recommend taking a second to take it all in. After a quick scramble down the back of the Ridge, you’re next rewarded with 2.5 miles of fantastic single-track trail. It’s just hard enough to keep your brain and feet will be happy. Your final reward? You’re almost done! For the last bit of the loop, you join up with red for a speedy finish back into the village.
Red Loop – Pemberton Trail (Hard):
Distance: 6.60 miles
Elevation Gain: 573.44 feet
At 6.6 miles, Pemberton is the longest of the three trails. After splitting from green, red loop takes you on a single track climb through the saguaros to the summit of the Scenic Trail. It’s challenging, but that’s what makes it great! From the top, you’ll enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of the mountains. After descending the Scenic Trail, you’ll converge on to the Pemberton Trail, briefly meeting up with green again. After green splits off to the left, you head straight ahead for the water station (it’s the only one on the loop, so fill up!). From there, you’ll continue down Pemberton, eventually leaving the trail to cut down a sandy wash. The wash is tough, and may feel longer than it is, but you’ll be back on trail before you know if, meeting up with yellow for a final push in to the village.

Ragnar
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.
