Waitlist Is Open! If you would like to be added then please email

We have now opened a second date on the 21st of September 2023 >>

The 2024 Silver Medal event is now sold out but we have reopened the waitlist. 

Join us at the Rasselbock Backyard Ultra taking place in the spectacular Sherwood Pines forest in Nottinghamshire, UK.

For those who have not taken part in a backyard ultra before then, you’re in for a treat. It is the last man-standing event where you must begin a new lap on the hour, every hour. The race will only end when there is just one more runner remaining to start a lap. It’s sure to be an exciting and enjoyable event for runners and spectators alike with all the emotions guaranteed.

  • Camping and portaloos are available at the HQ for runners and teams.
  • The route is fully marked throughout the forest.
  • Fully equipped first aid team available throughout the event.
  • The race starts at 12 noon on Saturday 2nd March 2024
  • The site is available to set up from 5pm on Friday evening.
  • Finishers memento for every runner.
