Escape the grind and find your inner wild at Ragnar Vermont Trail, happening on Aug 16-17, 2019. The incredible West Windsor community has welcomed Ragnar back with open arms, so for the second year in a row teams will set up camp at beautiful Mt. Ascutney.

Your team will come together to conquer a series of three trails that start and end at Ragnar Village. Runners will experience the other-worldly beauty that exists only in the Vermont countryside. These trails send each runner over the river and through the woods (literally) on single-track trails sweeter than maple syrup. Plus, there’s a brand new Red Loop for you to take on.

Ragnar Trail Vermont routes

On Aug. 3-4, teams of 8 (or 4 ultra-runners) will set up camp, and come together to conquer a series of three trails that start and end at Ragnar Village, day and night and day again. Runners will experience trails built with love by our friends at Sports Trails of the Ascutney Basin (STAB), that’ll send each runner over the river and through the woods (literally) and on single-track trails as sweet as maple syrup.

Ragnar Village 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.

Event Details

Ragnar Village will be complete with:

    Food & Snacks (Friday night dinner included for each runner)
    Billions of Stars

No one will be allowed into the gear drop, village, or camping area before we are open on Thursday. Opening time TBD. If you arrive before the opening time we will line you up in the parking lot until we are open.

Check-In at the village opens Thursday night from 5 PM to 10 PM and starts again Friday morning. Before you go to HQ to check in, your entire team must watch a 12-minute safety video. After you have watched the video please have *only one member of your team* go to HQ to get your team's bib, food tickets, shirt tickets, and other goodies.

Gear drop can be found on Ski Tow Road. Follow signs for Gear Drop. Please listen to where volunteers tell you to go. Sometimes it's not where you want to go, but they do have a reason for directing you where they are.

You stop in gear drop to unload, then immediately move your car to parking, just like the airport. You will unload your gear and the people in your car, then leave the gear and people, to move to parking. *Do not bring your gear to your campsite while your car is still in gear drop even if your campsite is close to your vehicle. *Images will be added to this guide for the camping/gear drop/ parking area when they are finalized.

* After Gear Drop, please head to the parking area. There will be signs to direct you to parking. You will need to pay for parking upon entering. * *$20 if arriving on Thursday night, $10 if arriving on Friday night. There will be shuttles available to take you back to the camping area after you park. Shuttles will run until 10pm on both Thursday and Friday night. Please make sure to get everything you will need for the event from your car when you park it. If you need to get to your vehicle during the event after 10pm a staff member may be able to bring you to your car, but this is not guaranteed.

Each Regular Team Must Provide One Volunteer (Ultra teams don’t have to provide a volunteer). Each regular team is required to fill one volunteer shift. Volunteer shifts will be 3 hours in length, so runners are able to fulfill a volunteer shift in between running their loops. Teams can also have a non-runner volunteer for their team or pay $120 for a volunteer to be recruited by Ragnar through a local non-profit.

The person who signs up for the volunteer shift is not the one who has to show up to work the volunteer shift, as long as someone volunteers for the shift on behalf of your team (meaning you can change volunteers right before the shift). Failure to fulfill volunteer requirements will result in disqualification.

When can I camp?

Teams can camp both Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night! Please be aware that Saturday camping is not part of the event. Ragnar will still break down the village Saturday night. This means things like food, medics, potable water, phone charging station, and the bonfire will not be available Saturday night. If you are staying Saturday night make sure to grab the last shuttle before they stop running to get your vehicle from the parking area. You will be able to park your car in the Ragnar campground area.

Can I bring Alcohol?

Feel free to bring your own alcohol. We will also be selling beer at the event! All beer bought at the event will need to be consumed inside the beer garden in the village.

Is there cell reception?

    AT&T has great service at the venue and on the course
    *Verizon has spotty to no service in the village and on the course.
    Please plan accordingly if you and your team has Verizon, i.e. make plans to meet up before getting onsite, bring two way radios, hire a carrier pigeon etc.

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.
