  • LOS continues until only one runner can complete the lap within the 1-hour time limit
  • Runners are called into the starting corral at 3 minutes to the hour
  • Any runner not in the starting corral for any lap is not eligible to continue and is recorded as DNF (did not finish)
  • Any runner who fails to finish a lap is recorded as DNF (did not finish)

Rules are the same for the 12hr and 6hr however if you finish within the time frame then you will be recognised as a finisher instead of a DNF and if you make it to the last lap, you then need to race the last lap and cross the finish line in first to win

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Mostly single trails, we have tried to make it as easy underfoot as possible so it conforms to the original concept of the Backyard Ultra’s as in it is more a mental challenge rather than physical. We tried to keep the elevation as close the original Big’s Backyard (145m) as possible. Elevation per lap of the Blister is 120m
