The 2022 Backyard Ultra ‘South Africa’ Series kicks off at Taroko Trail Park in Modderfontein Nature Reserve – home of the SA Backyard Ultra Record. After an incredible finish to the 2021 series, this is the perfect location to get the series underway.

The route is also supporter and spectator friendly as the majority of the route can be seen from the Start / Finish area. The Start / Finish area is situated right next to an open field which allows athletes to be able to set up their gazebos / tents close at hand. The Fourways Farmers Market will also be open if your supporters need a little break and some entertainment.

The Backyard Ultra is a unique trail running experience that is open to all fitness levels. If you looking at doing your first half, full, ultra or crazy distance marathon, then the BU Series gives you the chance to push yourself for “Just One More Lap”.
