On Court Montréal is pleased to offer Montréal with its first edition of the Backyard Ultra.

For this unique event, we have chosen Parc Jean-Drapeau as our location

The race will start at the monumental sculpture “L’Homme de Calder”, then it will follow the Saint-Laurent river, pass by Mont Boulé, take the Cosmos bridge towards Notre-Dame Island, cross the circuit Gilles -Villeneuve, pass near to the Casino and return to Sainte-Hélène Island via the Islands bridge, providing a breathtaking view of downtown Montreal and the lit up Jacques-Cartier bridge . This is the most beautiful view of Montreal that we could wish for for this kind of event.

Two races are on the program: an individual and a team race.

Please note that due to COVID 19, the number of registrations is limited. If you would like to have the chance to participate in this event, you must pre-register on our website. We will organize a draw on the 8th April to select the Backyard’s runners.

Please visit our website for more information.
