Bob’s Big Timber Backyard Ultra is held on part of the Hunter Family generational tree farm. The farm is nestled in the scenic foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, outside of Glenmont, Ohio. Beginning with Bob’s two great grandparents, the earliest parcels of the farm were purchased in the 1870’s. The open field where the start/finish line is located will offer runners a panoramic view of the beautiful foothills. This particular parcel of land was purchased by Lew Mitten in 1889. Today the family tree farm is approximately 400 acres with over 17 miles of trails. The trails are enjoyed by family and friends for trail running, hiking and just enjoying life.
Timber from the farm has been used by family members for generations: as income, material for building farm structures, a covered bridge, log cabin, remodeling projects, and furniture to furnish their cabin and home.
