What is BACKYARD ULTRA?
*The backyard is the brainchild of Lazarus Lake the race director of Barkley Marathons. Backyard ultra is a form of ultra-marathon race where competitors must consecutively run laps with a distance of 6.706km or exactly 6706 meters (4.167 miles) in less than one hour. When each lap is completed the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next hour’s lap which starts at the top of the hour. Runners continue to run laps till there is only one runner left. S/he is declared the finisher/winner once s/he runs the last lap within the hour.
BACKYARD ULTRA RULES
The course is in F-9 Park and almost flat with approximately 36m (118ft) of elevation gain on each loop. It can easily be completed within the 1-hour time limit. The course is a mixture of gravel and dirt tracks.

8 months ago That was an amazing event for me. It was my first time to participate in half marathon, I was not expecting to compete the challenge but I did it I will wait for the next time because the team was very helpful, respectful and encouraging. I am very thankful to them
