UDOT urging caution with Wasatch Back relay

The 2010 Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay is underway. Beginning in Logan, the race ends Saturday in Park City. Utah Department of Transportation officials say during the course of this event runners will traverse the Bear River and Wasatch mountain ranges and associated back country in a test of running strength and endurance. UDOT spokesman Vic Saunders says the course for this relay is concurrent with, or crosses, several roadways. Saunders says motorists will observe runners crossing or running on the shoulders of state roadways. Saunders encourages drivers to reduce speeds, allow runners to cross when possible and proceed with caution.
