SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Ragnar Trail Relays presented by Salomon, an overnight team relay running event on trails, blazes through the beautiful trails of Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort in Twin Bridges, Friday, July 26-27.

Participants trek through the El Dorado National Forest on 17.6 miles of trail across three separate loops.

Over 1,000 runners from 27 states are expected to participate in the overnight team relay trail event. Ragnar Trail Tahoe will feature 132 total teams traversing through various trails. Regular teams (eight runners) and Ultra teams (four runners) will alternate runners through three loops of varying length and difficulty.

Ragnar Trail Tahoe includes the Green Loop, Sugar ‘N Spice, the shortest section at 2.7 miles long with a loop around the main base area. The Yellow Loop, Bryan Meadows, is a highly coveted 6.9 mile loop along a classic Sierra forest trail. Finally, runners can catch a chairlift to the top of Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort to run the Red Loop, Pony Express, which is the longest loop at 8 miles, overlooking the pristine blue waters of Lake Tahoe for 1.5 miles before descending 1,500 feet in less than three miles.

Runners will continue through the day and night, while team members set up camp and enjoy the festive atmosphere at Ragnar Village. The village will include live music, food, coffee, smores and hot chocolate for team members. Teams are designated a campsite at Ragnar Village where they’ll be able to relax when not running.

Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort features stunning trails that run through El Dorado National Forest and overlook the waters of Lake Tahoe. The resort, located in Twin Bridges, features more than 2,000 acres of trails. Ragnar Trail Relays’ recent partnership with TAMBA (Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association) will continue to improve the quality of trails in and around El Dorado National Forest and the Lake Tahoe area.
