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.

Route description
Route description

The course involves combinations of 3 loops. Total Course Mileage = 15.70 Miles. For full details, please visit:

Green Loop (Easy):

Distance: 3.90 miles
Elevation Gain: 440.38 feet

The Green loop is the easiest of the three loops but that doesn't make it EASY! Runners will start off by going against runner traffic and back behind the camping area where they will get unto Iron Mtn Trail. You will quickly turn off this trail and run on the side of the main road for about a quarter mile. Be sure to pay attention to the turns or you will find yourself running out of the park! You will turn off the main road onto another paved path under a canopy of trees and alongside a creek that may or may not be running depending on the amount of rain there has been this season. You will then cross paths with the yellow loop at about mile 1.5 and wave hello as you continue onto Laurel Pond Trail. You will slowly be gaining elevation on this doubletrack trail as you make your way to Wingdam Trail. In less than a mile you will make a sharp right on Wingdam Trail so pay attention! Yellow loop runners will be joining you on this trail. This trail is single track and VERY TECHNICAL! Please take your time and pick up those feet! At about mile 3 you will reconnect with the red loop and run together for a mile back to the Village!

Yellow Loop (Intermediate):

Distance: 5.10 miles
Elevation Gain: 695.07 feet

This loop is our intermediate loop and it's a good one! Runners will start out going against runner traffic for about a 1/2 mile where they will then break off from the pack. Please pay attention to signs and volunteer direction so you don't run this loop backwards! You will run past the Historic Furnace and shortly thereafter cross paths with the green loop and then continue through the camping areas and get unto Double Pond Trail and disappear into the trees. Now the fun begins! You will be on Double Pond for about a 1/4 mile and then turn onto Red Dot for another 1/4 mile and then unto Twin Bridges trail so don't miss the signs! You will stay on Twin Bridges for over a mile where you will then get onto Cherry Ridge Road for a 1/4 mile and then onto Laurel Pond for about a 3/4 mile where you will then make a sharp left turn and join up with the Green Loop runners onto Wingdam Trail. Again, pay attention to the signs so you don't miss any turns! You will run together for about 1/2 mile and then merge with the red loop and run a mile all together back to the Village. Wingdam Trail is VERY TECHNICAL! The first 1/4 mile will have lots of rocks and roots and it's downhill so watch your step!

Red Loop (Hard):

Distance: 6.70 miles
Elevation Gain: 683.39 feet

We call this one Wawayanda Lake Trail as you are making a loop around the lake. You will be deep in the woods for most of it but will catch glimpses of the lake throughout the run. Runners will start out running through the camping area and getting onto Pumphouse Trail. You will be on this trail for about 2 miles and then will turn onto Cherry Ridge road where you will pass the only water station on the loop so fill up! You will be on Cherry Ridge for less than 1/2 a mile and then turn onto Timber Trail. You will stay on this trail for 1/2 a mile and then get onto South End Trail for another 1/2 mile and then unto Sitting Bear trail for another 1/2 mile where you will then meet up with the Yellow and Green loop runners on Wingdam Trail and run the last mile together back to the Village. This loop is TECHNICAL!!! There are sections that are very very rocky and some sections that are very very rooty and some sections that are both very rocky AND rooty! So please pick up your feet and pay attention! This is a great loop so enjoy!
