A Magical Desert Oasis Awaits You and Your Friends
It’s time to take your love of the desert, running and mother nature to the next level. And we mean next level.
Ragnar Trail McDowell Mountain presented by Salomon, happening on Nov. 2-3, 2018, pits you and your running besties against single-track so sublime and views epic you’ll be hooked on that near-gripped euphoria for weeks.
Teams of 8 (or 4 for ultra) spend 2 days, plus one star-filled night, out in the desert at McDowell Mountain Regional Park (just northeast of Scottsdale), where you’ll test your limits on some seriously fun trails with majestic mountain views and epic desert flora and fauna.
Ragnar Trail is an overnight trail running adventure that you can only do with a team. And when the sun goes down, runners make their way through the night with headlamps, under a magical moon a star-lit sky, until every person on their team has completed all three loops on Saturday.
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, runners (friends, co-workers, kids) are welcome to join us a night earlier, starting on Thursday for a bonus day of camping, campfires, kumbaya-ing and fun!
Mark your running calendar for Nov. 2-3, and get ready for one of the most transformative sunrises in the series, this course will not disappoint!
