Shortly after 8 a.m. on Friday morning, 46-year-old Park City resident Tyler Rasch collapsed and died while running the Ragnar Relay race near Paradise, Utah.
Rasch was taken to Logan Regional Hospital, where medical personnel pronounced him dead.
Friends of Rasch’s family visited the Ragnar finish line on Saturday, where many of the nearly 12,000 event participants offered condolences and financial support. Ragnar Co-Founder and President Tanner Bell said his thoughts are with the Rasch family in this difficult time.
"Our hearts go out to the family," he said. "It’s something that affects the entire running community in Utah and our staff and volunteers."
A viewing service is scheduled for June 24 from 6-9 p.m. at the LDS Stake Center at 3010 W Saddleback Rd. in the Jeremy Ranch area. Funeral services will be on June 25 at noon at the Park City LDS Stake Center at 1733 Lucky John Dr. in Park City.
