Ragnar Trail Arizona route

The course involves a series of 3 loops. Total Course Mileage = 15.40 Miles. For full details, please visit:

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 Village:

This is the heart and soul of the event. Each trail begins and ends in Ragnar Village. It is the start line, the finish line, and the exchange point. After each loop you will return to the support of your teammates and the adulation of the teams around you. Ragnar Village will be complete with:

• Bonfire & Yoga

• Food & snacks (Friday night dinner included for each runner)

• S’mores

• Beer Garden

• Allegro Coffee and Hot Chocolate

• Billions of stars


We love to partner with local community groups in the areas we run through. We have 36 exchange points along our course plus water stations and sometimes crossing assistants or course directional locations that all need volunteers. In exchange for your service we will make a donation to your group! More details at:

Meet the organiser

Are you the organizer? Claim this page

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.
