Trail of Fears is the longest continuous running Last Runner Standing ‘Backyard Ultra’ in the world. The first one took place in December of 2012 just two months after the original Backyard Ultra. It was also the very first one to take place as an offspring of the Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra.

We stay on the trail loop for the entire race which has a ton of hairpin turns and rollers that do a good job of working the runners.

Tennessee weather in December is unpredictable.
