The team that organizes the Legends Backyard Belgium event and the Satellite World Team Championship in Belgium, will be organizing a Backyard Ultra in Benin, West-Africa starting on April 7 2024.

It is one of the first Backyard Ultras in West-Africa  and the runners will have to face a challenging lap in the Atacora Mountain Range with almost 400ft of climbing per loop. An added challenge will be temperatures rising to almost 40°C (104°F), but the scenery will make up for all of that.

We hope to welcome many local runners who will get the chance to try out this concept for the first time and find their limits.
