The Valkyrie Relay™ is Utah’s only multisport relay race, spanning nearly 100 miles of Utah’s spectacular ‘Wasatch Back’ mountain range. The event pits teams of up to 9 specialized competitors against each other, racing against the clock, and exchanging between trail running, kayak/canoe paddling, marathon, mountain biking, stand-up paddle boarding, open water swimming, and road cycling. The race will take place June 18, 2021 and consists of four events: Full, Sprint, Marathon, and Half—everything culminating with an all-day Expo (Endurance Sports Summit) at the finish line. The course description below is for the Full Course Relay. Please visit the Sprint, Marathon, and Half descriptions for those specifics.

The Valkyrie Sprint Relay offers competition in all seven sports and runs concurrently with the Full course version. The shorter distances make the race more accessible to recreational, youth and family teams, and ultra-athlete pairs. Experience the same excitement and epic racecourse as the Full Course counterparts.
The Valkyrie Marathon and Half-Marathon are stand-alone races held concurrently with the Valkyrie Multisport Relay. The Marathon follows the RDR (Road Run) leg of the Valkyrie Full Relay course, and the Half Marathon follows the last half of the course starting at Midway City Ice Rink. The Road Run pays homage to Utah’s celebrated Central Wasatch. Marathon and Half Marathon runners compete on the comparatively cool scenic highways and country roads of Wasatch County and Midway, Utah. The first half of the full marathon is a fast descent. The second half, meanders through tree-lined neighborhoods and past green pastures before arriving at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center (SHNC)
