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.
