10-Hour Backyard Ultra
I'm excited to launch the next Perpetual Motion Event - my take on the Backyard Ultra! It's inclusive, challenging and a lot of fun.
A 4-mile loop, completed on the hour, every hour, for 10 hours. The event begins at 08:00 sharp, you have 1-hour to complete the 4-mile loop and get yourself back on the start line to be ready for the next loop at 09:00.
You must start each 4-mile loop on the hour, every hour, until the 10 hours are complete (or you decide you've had enough!). You can take as long as you like to complete each 4-mile loop, but the longer you take, the less time you'll have to sit down and rest before the next loop begins!
Those who complete the full challenge will run / walk a total of 40-miles over 10 hours.
When & Where
08:00 - 18:00

We will use the hall as a warm, dry base and start each loop from there. You will have use of chairs and tables and can make your 'camp' there, returning to the same spot to recover.
There will be unlimited tea and coffee, cakes, fruit and other goodies for you during the event. I will be serving pizza for those who might like a warm slice at the mid way point. Please do also bring any race nutrition you know particularly suits you to keep you fuelled for the duration.
