(Note: This race has been postponed until 2024)

P. J. Hoffmaster State Park is one of the jewels of the Michigan park system. Run on beautiful soft trails with a mix of wooded beauty and scenic elevation changes. Your crew and family can enjoy beautiful Lake Michigan while you find your personal distance record in our backyard format challenge. Whether you want to reach ultra distance or run a loop and party, you won’t find a more beautiful race venue.
After all, you can’t get enough of the Hoff. Once you’re done, enjoy our performance beverages from Pigeon Hill Brewing Company. Rumor has it that they are performance fuel for backyarding, so we’re lucky that they’re powering the Hoff!

The top 10 finishers have a reserved spot in the Ode to Laz Michigan Backyard Ultra in July. Since Ode to the Hoff is an affiliated race, your performance can also qualify you for the Big’s Backyard world championship as an at large bid.

The only thing that could make this race better is competing in the team challenge and enjoying discounts:
