OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT EVENT

Backyard Ultra!


The brainchild of Lazarus Lake, the race director of Barkley Marathons. Backyard ultra is an ultramarathon race where competitors must consecutively run the distance of 6706 meters (4.167 miles) in less than one hour (59:59)
When each lap is completed, the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next hour’s race. There is a departure every hour. Runners are disqualified if:
- They do not complete a loop in less than one hour.
- They fail to start the next loop on time.
There is only one winner in Backyard Ultras. The last runner standing. The second runner called 'The Assist' contributes to the winner 'winning'. All other runners including The Assist are attributed a DNF (Did Not Finish).
A runner is proclaimed winner only if:
-The Assist does not complete the final loop in less than one hour provided that the last runner has completed the final loop in less than one hour.
-He/she completes the final loop in less than one hour whereas The Assist has abandon and does not take the start of the same final loop.

There is no winner if:
- Both runners cannot complete a loop in less than one hour.
- Both runners abandon before starting the last loop.
There are different options for the loops. At Big Dog Backyard Ultra there is a day loop and a night loop. A day loop is a trail track while a night loop is on asphalted road. For this first edition here, we will run on the same loop for the whole duration of the race.
Hug The Backyard Ultra Mauritius 2021 is a first in Mauritius and this edition will pay a tribute to our dear friend and great ultra sportsman Hugues Rivet who tragically left us during a triathlon event, living his passion.
"BE CONSISTENT" was Hugues moto in life and a Backyard Ultra is no less when consistency is required.
Train Hard!

Get ready to live an uncomparable Ultra event!
