The 2022 Backyard Ultra 'South Africa' Series kicks off at Taroko Trail Park in Modderfontein Nature Reserve. After an incredible finish to the 2021 series, this is the perfect location to get the series underway.

Runners will be treated to a stunning course along dams, through forest and grasslands. The Highveld weather conditions in February are perfectly suited for runners who are looking for cooler temperatures to push their limits. Experience the best trails nature has to offer on your doorstep at Taroko Trail Park.

The route is also supporter and spectator friendly as the majority of the route can be seen from the Start / Finish area. The Start / Finish area is situated right next to an open field which allows athletes to be able to set up their gazebos / tents close at hand. The Fourways Farmers Market will also be open if your supporters need a little break and some entertainment.
