Event Details

Welcome to the Ultra of your Dreams...

Last Person Standing. One winner, the rest DNF. This Ultra is in the style of Backyard Ultras.

The race is a 6.706 km loop course on gentle trails. You will start at 8:00 am and must complete your lap within that hour.

Exactly one hour after the first starting time, you run another 6.706 km within that hour. This is repeated hourly. The race ends when the last runner or runners either concede or fail to finish the distance within the allotted time frame. You must be at the start line and begin racing when the start whistle is blown. Failure to do so will result in a DNF.

Daydream Option

There is a Prairie Daydream option as an introduction to "Backyard Races" and trail running.

This event is for those that want to just give the "Backyard Ultra" style of event a try!

You still get to run the same 6.706km loop, you still get to start on the hour but in this event you can start at whatever hour you want (provided there are other runners on the course).

You can run 1 loop or up to 5 loops (consecutively) without any pressure of having to keep pushing past where you want to. Come on out and give this style of racing a go!

**There will be a $20 (race day) charge for those using a trailer**

Please adhere to all social distancing guidelines laid out by the Provincial Government during the entirety of the event.
