Overview

Complete 4.167 miles every hour, on the hour. A Backyard Ultra is a new form of endurance event. The concept is simple. Run 4.167 miles every hour, on the hour. The aim is to complete as many laps as you can! Each circuit starts on the hour and must be completed in less than 60 minutes. When each lap is completed, the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next circuit. Everyone completes hourly circuits until there is only one runner still going. They are the event winner! The current world record for a Backyard Ultra is 354 miles or 85 hours! How far can you go?
