The start finish area will be an awesome environment – each runner can bring 2 crew members (highly recommended). There will plenty of space to set up a pop-up for you and your crew. If you are eliminated feel free to stick around, have a few beers (BYOB), and cheer other runners on!
You will essentially be self-sustained. We will bring water and an electrolyte/fuel. Other than that you are on your own. Bring all your own food.
We will assign each individuals finishing mileage in UltraSignup. A DNF will NOT go on your record, instead it will be the total miles accumulated. We want anyone and everyone to come out and see how many miles they can run on this challenging and beautiful course! Come set a PR! Come run a few laps and join in the party!
Everyone will receive a badass race shirt and a custom wooden finisher’s award. The award will have the distance you covered burnt in on-site at the conclusion of your race!
Our #1 goal for this race is to create an amazing trail experience where people can come out and find a new personal best. And afterwards, hang out and cheer others on as they attempt to do the same. Whether you hope to get 4.2 miles or 100 miles we want you to come out and join the fun.
Our second goal for this race is to make it a “ticket” event for the BIG BACKYARD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Belt Buckle, TN. This is a complicated process that we are still trying to figure out. We have already been in contact with The Big Backyard Championships. But, in other words, the winner of Eternal Damnation could eventually work towards a spot in the Big Backyard World Championships.
We will abide by all rules exactly to their specifications and be in contact with them frequently in an effort to make this happen.
We will announce every time one of the 66 spots is filled as well as who filled it, on our Facebook page.
SO, welcome to THE ETERNAL DAMNATION BACKYARD!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN on ultrasignup!
