Ragnar Trail Wisconsin is back, and it’s still the best running party under the stars. Runners come together at Nine Mile Forest – nestled ten miles outside of Wisconsin’s outdoor mecca, Wausau. Nine Mile Forest is known for cross-country ski trails but when the snow melts, there are miles of epic single-track running trails waiting just for you.Your team will set out to conquer a series of three challenging trails that meander under a canopy of oak, pine and birch trees. And when the sun goes down, run the night away with headlamps and a billion stars lighting the way. Back home at Ragnar Village you can rest your legs next to the campfire, chow down on s’mores, and relax with your team. This year, join us on Thursday for a bonus day of camping, campfires, kumbaya-ing and fun!Any level of runner can come conquer these twisty turny trails as you find yourself in this journey of adventure, self-discovery and sheer nature-loving goodness!

15.2 Mile Relay:
Event summary
Here are the distances available for Ragnar Trail Wisconsin
15.2 Mile Relay
Route information
The course involves combinations of 3 loops. Total Course Mileage = 15.20 Miles. For full details, please visit: https://www.runragnar.com/event-detail/trail/wisconsin#courseExternalLink
Green Loop (Easy):
Distance: 3.00 miles
Elevation Gain: 204.83 feet
All three Loops leave the Village together on single-track through a tight grove of pine. Near half a mile, the Green Loop takes a left turn away from Yellow and Red in pursuit of perfect trail running harmony. The next one and a half mile section is a circle, run clockwise, and finds balance between buttery smooth and technical sections. Once the circle is complete and enlightenment is achieved, the trail crosses the Yellow and Red Loops and the single-track fun continues for another half mile. A right turn then joins Green and Yellow to bring you back home to the Village.
Yellow Loop (Intermediate):
Distance: 4.60 miles
Elevation Gain: 387.21 feet
The Yellow Loop is sweet. That really is the best way to describe it. Fun, flowing, single-track through the forest. You might even find yourself feeling like a gnome. At half a mile, Green turns away to the left and then shortly after, the Red turns away to the right. And that is when the fun starts in earnest. The trail twists and turns, zigs and zags so much that you’ll be lost in a maze…ment! After three miles of fast burning single-track, a left turn puts you onto the namesake section of this loop. Ya, we headed up nort don’t cha know. It is Wisconsin after all and we couldn’t resist. And you will not be able to resist smiling as you finish this loop out.
Red Loop (Hard):
Distance: 7.60 miles
Elevation Gain: 734.11 feet
This loop is a mix of forest road double-track, super rugged single-track, and dense forest. The first two and a half miles are moderate, mostly forest road with a ribbon of single-track down the middle. You might even ask yourself why this is the “Red” Loop. Don’t get ahead of yourself, it is coming. Hold on tight as the next half a mile is one of the most technical sections in our series. Even in full daylight this place is dark due to the dense foliage, and the rocks and roots are thick. Even the most hardy seasoned trail runners will need to slow it down as they weave their way through this ‘white knuckle’ section. Once you hit mile three, things mellow out a bit and the next three miles, although technical, are increasingly runnable. Just after mile six the trail turns back to double-track, the grade is mellow, and you can kick on whatever is left in the tank to get back to the Village and your team’s cheers.

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
• Food & snacks (Friday night dinner included for each runner)
• Movies
• S’mores, Coffee, & Hot Cocoa
• Music
• Billions of stars
Start times:
Starting times are based on accurate pace predictions, it is critical for a successful event that each runner has an accurate 10K road race pace in their online profile. Note that pace means how long it takes you to run one mile (minutes/mile) at your race pace and not how many overall minutes it takes to complete the 10K. These predictions are critical to a successful event and will allow us to place teams in starting slots based upon the team's overall pace. If individuals have not participated in a competitive 10K recently, we strongly encourage them to run one before submitting a team pace. Alternatively, consider getting together as a team for training run at a competitive 10K pace. When assigning starting times, we consider the difference between road and trail running, the difficulty of the course, elevation above sea level, as well as the pace of all of the runners on the team. Therefore, it is extremely important that the pace submitted for each runner is accurate.
Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers from each category within each division for teams who complete all 24 loops. There will also be an award for best team name, the best campsite, best costumes (no feathers or glitter), and overall favorite team.
Other points to note:
The use of personal music devices with headphones while running is strongly discouraged.
Startling wildlife can cause a dangerous situation. Making noise while you are running will help alert wildlife of your presence and keep you safe. If you do see a wild animal, common practice is to make noise and to keep your distance.
While participating in the race, the consumption of alcohol is highly discouraged. Alcohol greatly increases the risk of dehydration.
Bonfires have functioned as catalysts for bonding experiences for thousands of years. Who doesn’t like roasting s’mores while listening to someone strumming a 6-string. We are bringing the fire to the event (depending on the venue and area burn restrictions) but you have to bring good sense.
The race will occur rain or shine. However, under certain severe weather conditions where significant damage or altercations to the race course occur, we reserve the right to cancel the event, shorten the event, and/or hold teams until the weather improves.
When will I receive my starting times for the Ragnar Trail Wisconsin?

If you are still not sure of your start time, Check the Wisconsin Trail 2022 Runner Packet (https://quip.com/rn2yAuACNZHZ) for an explanation on how start times are assigned and what to do if you think yours should change.
