Valkyrie Segment: Trail Run (TRL)
The Valkyrie Relay spans nearly 100 miles of Utah’s spectacular ‘Wasatch Back’ mountain range. The event pits teams of up to 9 specialized competitors, each racing against the clock and exchanging between trail running, kayak/canoe paddling, marathon, mountain biking, stand-up paddleboarding, open water swimming, and road cycling.
The Trail Run undulates along the Jordanelle Reservoir Perimeter Trail. Starting pre-dawn, headlamps are required. Pace-setting Trail Runners benefit from cooler weather as they lengthen the field. Maneuvering space will be a premium at the exchange at the end of the Trail Run. If you can get ahead, do it.
