Zion Ragnar 2018

7:00 AM - 7:00 PM at Zion Ponderosa Resort

High desert mesa trails, billions of stars, unforgettable long weekend
Ragnar Trail Zion-UT presented by Salomon is the trail relay that inspired the entire series, and it’s back for year five! Grab your most adventurous friends (or anyone ready for an unforgettable, nature-fueled experience) and join us May 11-12, 2018 to run relay style over two days and one star-filled night!

Your team will set up camp at Zion Ponderosa Ranch, a hidden gem just outside of Zion National Park. This venue features amenities such as a pool, showers, a rock climbing wall and restrooms. This year, Ragnar Trail Zion a full blown 3-day weekend adventure in the desert. Runners (friends, co-workers, kids) are welcome to start their Ragnar Trail experience one full day earlier on Thursday for s’mores, campfires and a stargazing activity.

On Friday, the real fun begins as teams of 8 (or 4) cycle through a series of three challenging trail loops that start and finish back at Ragnar Village. You’ll run through sweet summer sage, under towering ancient pines and across red dirt trails that take you up (and up!) to some expansive overlooks including Dixie National Forest, Cedar Breaks, and Zion National Park’s famous “Checkerboard Mesa.”

When the sun sets and the moon comes out the party keeps going as runners head to the trails in the dark for a spirit-quest, soul-searching, star-fueled night of running is where the real memories are made.

The race wraps up Saturday where you can finish together under the Ragnar arch and celebrate with the best medal ever. Mark your running calendar for May 11-12, and don’t miss the experience that just might change you.
