Who will be the LAST BUCKEYE STANDING? Join us in the “Buckeye State” of Ohio for the “Last Buckeye Standing Backyard Ultra’. Race will be held at Alum Creek State Park on the wooded and scenic Alum Creek Hiking Trail that runs along the Alum Creek Reservoir. The course will be a 4.167 mile loop through grass ski paths and single track trails with moderate elevation gains/losses (100-200ft per loop). Race will follow all standard Backyard Ultra rules and regulations. Course trail will be clear and in August trails are dry, runnable but be prepared for rain and mud in low-lying spots. The summer daylight hours are long but for the night loops we recommend headlamps for the hours 9:00 pm – 5:00 am. We will also place solar landscape lights on the trail that will provide some lighting of the trail and especially hazards but do not count on them to light your entire path – have that headlamp.
