The 2023 Backyard Ultra heads to Van Gaalen Cheese Farm and where it all started in 2021.
Van Gaalen hosted the first BYU in SA and was the place where the initial SA Lap Record of 31 Laps was set. What a fitting place to head back and see what the runners can do this year.

Silver Ticket Event:
Van Gaalen Backyard Ultra is a ‘Silver Ticket’ event meaning that the winners of the Silver Ticket events will have a place on the national team and compete against the World at the Backyard Ultra World Team Champs - 15th of October 2024.
The route is also supporter and spectator friendly as the majority of the route can accessed from various points. A mid-point comes past the Start/Finish where supporters can give their encouragement for their runners. 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.
