Route information
Green Loop - River Trail
Distance: 3.1 Miles
Elevation Gain: 615.21ft
The Smallest loop of the event, the River Trail (Green Loop) starts in the Ragnar village, making a loop around The Lodge at Sugar Bowl and returning to the village. The course starts with a gradual decline for the first third, then the elevation starts slowly increasing, and then heads toward the finish on a mostly flat trail, before tackling a sharp uphill climb and finishing on a downhill run back to the Village.
Yellow Loop - Mt Judah Trail
Distance: 5.2 Miles Elevation Gain: 1458.26ft
Though not the longest loop at this event, the Mt Judah Trail (Yellow Loop) is the highest. In fact, this loop is Ragnar's third-highest run. The route's first half is a constant climb up to Mt Judah Peak. The second half is a decline back to the village, with a short incline near Mt Lincoln.
Red Loop - Crows Nest Trail
Distance: 6.7 Miles Elevation Gain: 1958.27ft
The Crows Nest Trail (Red Loop) is the longest of the 3 main loops at this event. Initially following the same route as the Green Loop, the Red Loop diverts to a much longer trail near the Royal Gorge & Mount Disney. The course starts with a gradual decline (with a very sharp descent and then ascent in the middle) and then has a long and tough climb for the main portion of the loop. upon reaching the peak of the run, the loop descends back to the Ragnar Village.

Ragnar Relay's logo
Ragnar Relay
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.
