Welcome to the first Rasselbock Back Yard Ultra. 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.
  • Race start at 12 noon on Saturday 4th March 2023.
  • The site is available to set up from 7am on the Saturday morning.
  • Finishers momento for every runner.

Sherwood Pines Forest Park is located 6 miles east of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, NG21 9JL

We will have a small aid station with lots of liquids, hot and cold drinks, and a small selection of fruits, sweets, and snacks. We will have extra tables for you to leave some items on if you don’t have a support crew. You are more than welcome to bring items for everyone or leave items for others after you have finished.

The route is still to be finalized but you can expect it to be at least the 4.16 mile minimum with roughly 100m of elevation on each lap. Underfoot will be a fix of forest floor and compact gravel fire tracks.
