Austria Backyard Ultra Frankenmarkt

Austria Backyard Ultra - 
Frankenmarkt 2024

The first official Austria Backyard Ultra in Austria

How many loops do you dare?

7 laps is more than a marathon.

15 laps is 100 km.

24 laps is 100 miles.


Off to the next round!

The Backyard Ultra mode is very simple.

Every hour the runners start a 6.706 km (=4.167 miles) long course. You have exactly one hour to do this. If you don't finish the round on time and don't start again, you're out! No late start! Very easy! ;-)


The event runs until there is only 1 runner left on the course. => open end

The race takes place according to the official Backyard Ultra regulations of the American original.

That is not all ...

charity The Austria Backyard Ultra is a charity run! 

€ 5.00 from the entry fee will be donated to a charity in the region.

Austria Backyard Ultra Team Challenge:

In addition, you can register as a team of 3 for the Austria Backyard Ultra Team Challenge.

Run together, have fun and motivate each other to achieve top performance!

As soon as exactly 3 participants have entered the same team name (please pay attention to the spelling and typos!), you are in.

Children Backyards: We organize additional children's runs for our junior runners.

New route from 2023:

Route video old route:




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

  • The route mostly leads over a wide forest road. There are hardly any technical passages and it is easy to walk.

  • 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.

  • The forest is a local recreation area and not a garbage dump. We move in nature and treat animals with respect. Inappropriate behavior in nature (especially throwing away rubbish) will result in 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.

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. There is no guarantee that the complete offer will be offered throughout the event. Breakfast for the 24-hour/100-mile runners is an egg dish.

  • medal and certificate

  • Parking and pitch for tent or pavilion

  • Changing, washing and shower facilities

  • DUV rating

  • …and much more!
