Ragnar Trail Relay – Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

For the third consecutive year Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort has been the host to a Ragnar Trail Relay.   Last year’s event drew 1,600 runners and this year’s event brought 2,800+.  These images and the video were from yesterday, and the weather changed overnight, so today weather wasn’t what was hoped for.

This event started yesterday morning (Friday – April 25) and concludes this afternoon.  Zion Ponderosa offers six different lodging options which were all filled, and a large part of the main resort area was a tent city for the past couple of days.

This Ragnar Trail Relay on the border of Zion National Park has been a great success, and participants seem to have enjoyed their experience in 2014.
