Austria Backyard 24+1 Schalchen/OÖ

The mode of the Backyard Ultra in a shortened version with a Race in Loop 25!


First, the run is like the well-known Austria Backyard Ultras.


At every hour the runners start into a 6,706 km (=4,167 miles) long course. One has exactly one hour for this. Who has not finished the lap in time and is not back at the start is out! No late start! Very easy! ;-)

The Austria Backyard 24+1 differs in the end of the race:

If more than 1 participant completes the 24th lap (=100 miles / 160 kilometers), the bonus lap will start. Here the race is decided and the fastest runner wins the Austria Backyard 24+1!

The race also ends if only 1 participant remains on the course before the 24th lap. The winner has to finish 1 lap more than the runner-up.

sidenote: this race will not be included in the official Austria Backyard Ultra statistics.

The specialty: We have a day - and night route

Day route:

The route runs mainly on forest roads through the Holzwiesental valley.

There are 2 short meadow sections to run and a few meters of asphalt.

The course profile includes only 1 comfortable climb which is relatively equal to the downhill. The entire course is rather flat and pleasant to run.

In total, the running route has about 60 hm.

  • The route is sufficiently marked and secured by marshals. After 10 laps at the latest, you already know the way blindly. 😉

  • The route is mostly on wide asphalt roads. There is only one long, steep climb to run. The rest is flat.

  • In the start-finish area there is space for chairs, a cool box, a sleeping tent or a small pavilion for the runners. First come - first serve! Runners who drop out early must give up space in the start-finish area. This allows runners who are still in the race to move closer to the starting line.

  • Sanitary facilities are available near the start-finish area.

  • Refreshment station is in the start-finish area. There is no aid station on the route.

  • Inappropriate behavior on the running course (especially throwing away trash) will be punished with immediate disqualification.

  • The run takes place at your own risk and on your own responsibility on a route that is not closed off or monitored. On roads, the StVO must be followed and the traffic observed. Vehicles are to be expected on the running track.

The participant is responsible for accidents or injuries of any kind and must take out adequate insurance himself. The landowner and the organizer are not liable for this.


  • race organization

  • Musical entertainment and moderation

  • Refreshments during the run (water, iso, cola, coffee, soup, tomatoes, cake, fruit, salt, peanuts, salt sticks/pretzels, spreads, chips, and much more). Subject to change.
