The Backyard format is inclusive and allows participants the chance to run with community, set a personal record, lean in to support & challenge each other, experience an ultra that brings you back to home base over & over again and encourages you to dig deep, push yourself and of course, chase the SILVER TICKET.
The inaugural BC Backyard Ultra, hosted by Lewiston Ultra Events is an approved SILVER TICKET event in support of the Canadian Championship and Big's Backyard Ultra World Championship. The winner of the BC Backyard Ultra will receive an invitation to participate in the Canadian Championship and opportunity to compete in the World Championship.
The BC Backyard Ultra will host 100 racers & there is no waitlist.
Every hour on the hour, runners must complete 6706 meters (4.167 miles/6.7056 kms).
Three minutes before the top of the hour, three whistles will blow. Get ready.
Two minutes before the top of the hour, two whistles will blow. It's time.
One minute before the top of the hour, one whistle will blow. If you aren't in the starting chute yet, best better make your way.
When the bell rings at the start of the hour, all runners must be present, ready to go and in the starting chute. If you are not in the starting chute and do not start when the bell rings, you are disqualified.
When one runner remains, they will complete one more loop, a last loop, to be named the BC Backyard Ultra Winner and receive SILVER TICKET.
There is only one winner; all other participants will DNF (did not finish).
