The Cow Shed Backyard Ultra



Age 18 & over

  • 1 hr multi terrain running


In simple terms that means competitors must complete the 4.1-mile loop on the hour every hour until only 1 runner remains. The bell will be sounded exactly on the hour and if you have failed to make the starting area before the bell rings, then you will be disqualified from the event and will become one of the many DNF’s! There will be only 1 athlete who does not receive a DNF and they will be crowned the champ! The course is not flat and has approx. 500ft of elevation gain on each loop, saying that, it can easily be completed inside the 1-hour time limit. It is a mixture of farmland, single-track trail and woodland dirt tracks. Our event takes place on private land, it is therefore not possible to recce the route before race day!
