…untill the last person completes a loop on their own!

RACE FORMAT

RACE DAY INFO

ENTRIES & OTHER INFO

How Long Is A Loop?

Each loop is 6.7km… give or take a meter here & there, depending on how close to the inside you take the turns 😉

How Much Time Is Available Per Loop?

You have one hour to complete a loop before the next one starts. If you fail to complete it in 60minutes (even by 1 second) you are part of the 84 DNF’s.

Who Is The Winner?

Whoever is left & completes a loop on their own, not simply when an assist quits.

If an assist quits or falls out during a loop, if the “last person standing” completes that loop in the required hour… that person is the winner.

Of the last person does NOT complete the loop, there is no winner :\

When Is Registration?

Registration (on-site) will be open from 10:00 – 15:30 ON race-day. We’ll adhere to Covid Policies, screening & checking.

When Does The Race Start?

The Backyard Ultra Golden Ticket Race starts
@ 16:00, Friday, 30 July 2021.

If you aren’t at the starting corral at 16:00, you’ll outomatically be a DNF.

Any Covid Things I Need To Know?

PLEASE, if you’re showing any signs of sickness, please do not do it to yourself, or others, by attempting Backyard Ultra.

We want you, and everyone else, to be able to run many more races.

Keep following government’s social distance guidelines & stay safe & healthy!

What Is The Refund Policy?

As Backyard Ultra is a shoestring-budget event (we just want everyone to be part of it) we do not offer refunds, however, we do not mind if you exchange or sell your entry to anyone else that you deem is worth the suffering.

Am I Allowed To Sell/Exchange My Entry?

Of course #We’reChilledLikeThat… BUT we ask that you let us know (at the LATEST) 24hours before the race starts to ensure nobody steals your spot. If we don’t know, and heard it directly from you, we’re not, unforunately, going to allow that person to take your spot.

*Invitationals aren’t allowed to exchange their entries and have to let us know so that we can give it to someone on the waitlist.

If I Win, What Happens?

If you won, you’ll have to be available from 11 – 20 October 2021 (give or take a few days) to travel to Big’s Backyard Ultra

The T’s & C’s for this is simply that your VISA application is successful (as soon as possible) & that you’re available.

Your VISA Application, Flight Ticket, Travel & Meals to the USA will be paid for.

If, for some reason the winner isn’t available, the offer will be extended to the assist.

Obviously, everything is Covid-dependent :: https://za.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information-2/
