Sister event to Birdy’s Backyard Ultra.
An incredible spectacle for runners, crew, volunteers and spectators alike, the Backyard Ultra format is an extreme form of ultra marathon running.
Runners tackle a 6.71k loop on the hour, every hour until all but 1 runner is left. Once all expect the last runner fails to complete a lap within cut off, the final competitor must then complete a solo lap within cut off to be crowned the winner. If they fail to complete the lap within cut off, they’ll be “Given The Boot”. So if you like the prospects of a 99.97% chance of a DNF and receiving the black DNF boot as your prize, then this is the event for you.
Or do you fancy your chances at winning the Golden Boot?
