BACKYARD ULTRA SERIES

5 Venues | 5 Races | 1 Backyard Ultra Series Winner

In 2021, we introduced the Backyard Ultra Series concept to SA. 

Over the year, this unique trail running experience has grown with more runners participating and running further then they thought possible. With "Just One More Lap" being repeated in your mind, the support you get from your family and friends and the encouragement you get from other runners - this is a race not to be missed.

Each venue is unique, with different challenges, elevation, conditions which makes the Backyard Ultra Series an exciting series to be part of. So if you are looking at doing your first half, full, ultra or crazy distance marathon, then the Backyard Ultra Series gives you the chance to push yourself for "Just One More Lap".
