Ragnar Trail McDowell Mountain, AZ
Ragnar Trail McDowell Mountain – AZ, presented by Salomon, is the overnight desert trail running adventure that southwest runners cannot miss. Held in the McDowell Mountain Range, just northeast of Scottsdale, teams will conquer the course at McDowell Mountain Regional Park.
With over 50 miles of breathtakingly diverse trails, this area provides magestic mountain views, epic desert flora and fauna, and some seriously fun trails! Swooping descents, rocky climbs, and smooth star-lit, sandy washes await you and your team. You may even catch a glimpse of the ellusive Javelina while you are serenaded by the songs of howling coyotes during your run. With one of the most transformative sunrises in the series, this course will not disappoint! Cool desert air at night, warm, clear sunny skies during the day, and miles of epic trail running are all part of the deal!
We are excited to be partnering with the McDowell Mountain Sonoran Conservancy who works with more than 500 volunteers to help protect and promote the McDowell Sonoran Preserve through trail building, guiding hikes, education and research, among other efforts.
