Our Backyard Ultra is hosted in a backyard in Winchendon, MA and hosted by the 2021 DFL champion (Jenny Kenty!). The loop will include dirt (Class 4) road, old railroad trestle, snowmobile trail, and a small amount of pavement. Come enjoy a race where being DFL makes you the winner!
Parking and camping available (for free) at the start/finish area. It might be cold, so we’ll have a fire pit going to tempt you off the course…or to stay warm as we cheer you on!
Aid station at the start/finish area is full of whatever is left over from other races we directed this year. This being a community event, we ask that folks bring an offering of food or drink to share.
Each lap starts with the cracking of a beer…and then those dropped runners get to consume the beverage. After you drop, you’re welcome to start the next lap (and then enjoy your post-run beverage).
