Back Yard Ultra
June 21, 2019sold out
The inaugural Outrun Backyard Ultra will take place on June 21, 2019 the longest day of the year with Honorary Race Director, Laz Lake, creator of the Barkley Marathons & notably the most famous race director of all time. It’s the great equalizer, speed doesn’t matter maybe even a negative, what matters is grit, the will to go on, all one needs to do to succeed is to show up every hour upon the hour upon the hour. In the end, only one runner will stand, one victor, one that stared into the eyes of their opponents and refused to quit, one that Outruns the rest.
The last person standing will receive a golden coin & an entry to Laz’s Big Dog Backyard Ultra assuming he/she has 1 of the 2 most laps completed of all the 7 North American races.
All proceeds raised will support the Rare Disease Foundation
