Backyard ultra is a form of ultramarathon race where competitors must consecutively run the distance of 6706 metres (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 race.
Most runners will aim to complete perhaps 6, 12 or 24 laps with few runners continuing beyond 24 hours. However, the current world record is 85 laps (354.2 miles) set in October 2021 at Big's Backyard in Tennessee. We will have the race course open for as long as it takes our runners to run out of steam!
