The Mapledurham Backyard Ultra is an exciting, engaging course on varied terrain. The course starts from the grounds of Mapledurham House, up and through Chazey Woods and back. An abundance of wildlife and gorgeous views across the Thames Valley is sure to help distract you from your sore legs.

Mindful, connected running is at the heart of all our decisions when designing this race. We’ve spent hours in these woods making sure it’s as enjoyable to run on as possible, and hope that you take as much value from this course and the surroundings as we do.

Aside from the running, you will find a bustling hub of activity around Mapledurham house where you can refuel and relax between each lap. There will be plenty of space to set up support tents and a camping area for those who wish to stay the night. There is an easily accessible car park with enough room for caravans. Drinking water will be available.
