Red’s Backyard Ultra is set on a NSW State Cross Country course in Kembla Grange, roughly 1.5 hours south of Sydney. Runners and crew will have a dedicated area to set up a personal aid station and access to the clubhouse canteen and bathroom facilities.

It is a last-one-standing event where runners run a loop of 6.7056 km every hour on the hour until there is only one runner left; all other runners are technically a DNF. Runners are rivals, but they are also teammates. They combine their efforts to complete as many yards (loops) as possible. However, it is not until only two runners remain that it becomes a race to see who will win.

Why run a race where there is a substantial chance of a DNF? Because it is a race against yourself more than anyone else. How far can you push yourself? 10 hours, 24hrs, 2 days! It is the ultimate endurance test of the body, mind and soul.

2023 was such an amazing weekend and we look forward to seeing old faces and new come and play, toe the line, test their limits, and share your journey with us on Saturday 3 August 2024.
