Backyard Ultra Team Championship
Taroko Trail Park, Modderfontein
15th October 2022 @ 14H00
The Ledlenser Backyard Ultra Team Championship takes place at Taroko Trail Park, Modderfontein, where the top 15 Backyard Ultra runners will join forces to compete again the rest of the world. The country who records the furthest individual distance would be crowned World Champs.
Each national team will be made up of 15 runners which have been selected from all the Backyard Ultra events that have taken place over the past 2 years. They must work together, encourage each other and push each other to go "Just One More Lap". This is also a chance for individuals to win a slot to the Individual World Championship at Big Dog's Backyard in 2023.
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.
