In October the best Backyard Ultra runners in the world will converge at the Big Farm in Short Creek, Tennessee (USA) to compete for the coveted title of the Last Man on Earth. Under the watchful eye of the Big Dog himself, they will run laps of the yard until only one man (or woman) can complete the final yard. Every runner in the field will have earned their place at the start line, as champions in their own right. National Champions; winners of Golden Tickets…. This is truly the ultimate test. A test of not strength or speed; but a test of the pure will to win.

Do you want a place in that starting corral? Sign up for any Backyard Ultra and begin your journey to the greatest show on earth. There is a place in that corral for anyone with the will to earn it.
