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.
