Newpark Field House to Jeremy Ranch Elementary
Distance: 3.05 miles – Difficulty: Easy
Jeremy Ranch Elementary to Ecker Hill Middle School
Distance: 1.80 miles – Difficulty: Very Easy

Distance: 3.54 miles – Difficulty: Very Hard
Utah Olympic Park to Canyons Cabriolet Parking Lot

How tough are you? Leg 4 is back, as the only race leg in the country that includes a run up the stairs alongside an Olympic Ski Jump! (OK, our Founding Partner, Ragnar, loved it so much they are including it in the Wasatch Back this year)
Starting at the base of the jumps, it will be runner’s choice to go up the steps or to use the chairlift. Once at the top, there will be a short run on trail to Bear Hollow Road, where the runner will proceed downhill, as in previous years.
The chairlift takes 12 minutes, without a line. The steps will take a competitive person anywhere from 3 – 6 minutes. They will take the average child/parent anywhere between 7 – 11 minutes (with a few stops to catch your breath included.)
So, if you are running for time, the steps may be your best choice.
