The South African Backyard Ultra will take place at Taroko Trails, Modderfontein, Gauteng. The top 15 SA BYU runners will compete for pride and also a spot at Big Bogs in 2023.

The course runs through the beautiful Modderfontein Reserve and takes runners past flowing streams, next to large dams, through lush forest section and pat the farmers marker where spectators cheer their runners on.
