The Ragnar Trail Relay is a gritty trifecta of the most scenic trail loops Mother Nature can serve up. Each trail loop begins and ends at Ragnar Village™. Teams will run relay style, rotating through all three loops.

Ragnar Trail Vail Lake, CA

October 10-11, 2014

Vail Lake Resort


Ragnar Village 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:

Team Campsite

Each team will be given a location to set up their team campsite at Ragnar Village. No vehicles will be allowed at the campsite, so make sure everything is packed in bags and ready to be loaded on the campsite shuttle. Awards will be given for the best decorated team campsite and almost anything goes: tents, canopies, couches, camping chairs, BBQ's, kiddie pools full of Kool-Aid, whatever.
