Event summary
Here are the distances available for Faccombe Backyard Ultra
Route information
Distance 4.12 miles per lap
Elevation 750ft per lap
With a reputation for being one of the most challenging backyards in the world, this unique endurance running event is designed to push you to your limits. This race has no time limit - instead, it will conclude when there is just one finisher left, who must complete one solo lap.
Every hour, on the hour, participants must start and complete a loop. Failure to start, being late, or not completing a loop within the hour will mean you are out of the race. Run the lap in the fastest time to give yourself more time to recover, but keep in mind that you may burn yourself out. This race is all about careful planning and strategy.
The route is entirely off-road, set within the 4,250-acre Faccombe Estate in rural Hampshire. The course consists of established tracks and trails, with several hills to contend with.
The event is self-supporting, with crew welcome throughout.
