Ragnar Trail Relay Running Event

A runner cruises past a nearby canyon on the Ragnar Trail Relay course at Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort.

This is a relay race so when competitors are not running they will be enjoying the company of many others around campfires, and along the course.    This will be the largest event held at Zion Ponderosa and the resort is reserved on this weekend for competitors.

However, if running is not your game, but hiking, or outdoor adventure is more to your liking, then Zion Ponderosa is ready to host you too. April and May are perfect times to get away and experience the wonders of Zion National Park, and nearby Bryce Canyon National Park.

Remember that since we border Zion National Park, you can walk from the resort to the overlooks at Cable Mountain or Observation Point.  Don’t miss out on an opportunity to experience Zion National Park from the Top!

Ragnar at Zion – April 26-27, 2013

Monday, February 4th, 2013

Ragnar is coming again to Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort this April 26-27.   For those of you who know what Ragnar is, then you’ll be excited to participate at such a grand location.  For those who don’t know what a Ragnar Trail Relay is, here’s a brief synopsis.

 

Ragnar Trail Relay

Teams of either four or eight people will run relay style on dirt trails through the woods and past scenic canyons on the property of Zion Ponderosa.  This  race covers 120 miles and the average race time is 20 hours.  This particular Ragnar Trail Relay will begin in staggered starts between 2 pm and 7 pm on Friday evening.  Competitors will run throughout the night under a canopy of stars as brilliant as you might see anywhere.

As other team members are running their portion of the relay, the rest of the crowd will be cheering them on, enjoying the night around bonfires, and participating in the festive atmosphere.  Teams will finish their races sometime between  mid-morning and mid-afternoon on Saturday.
