After the successful 1st EVER edition of Margalla Backyard Ultra, Margalla Trail Runners (MTR) is going to organize the 2nd ever Backyard Ultra in the history of Pakistan. Mr. Fida Muhmmad is the current CHAMPION of Backyard Ultra who did 26 laps 1st Edition. So, are you ready to break the record of 1st edition?



Backyard Ultra is the biggest Ultra-running event in the world. Where “There is No finish. There is only one finisher. The last one standing”.


What is BACKYARD ULTRA?

*The backyard is the brainchild of Lazarus Lake, the race director of Barkley Marathons. Backyard ultra is a form of ultra-marathon race where competitors must consecutively run laps with a distance of 6.706km or exactly 6706 meters (4.167 miles) in less than one hour. When each lap is completed, the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next hour’s lap, which starts at the top of the hour. Runners continue to run laps till there is only one runner left. S/he is declared the finisher/winner once s/he runs the last lap, within the hour.


BACKYARD ULTRA RULES

 https://backyardultra.com/rules/

 “Margalla Backyard Ultra” follows the exact same format as the famous “Big Dog's Backyard Ultra”.

 Runners have to must complete 4.1-mile (6.706km or exactly 6706 meters) loop in an hour until only 1 runner remains.

 The bell will be sounded exactly on the hour and if you have failed to make the starting area before the bell rings, then you will be disqualified from the event and will become one of the many DNF’s!

 There will be only 1 athlete who does not receive a DNF (Did Not Finish) and he/she will be the champion.

 You will need to get your pacing right, as going too fast and you are going to be hanging around at the start waiting to go again, but take it too easy and you may find yourself working harder than you need to, to make the time limit.


Course/Route

The course is in F-9 Park and almost flat with approximately 36m (118ft) of elevation gain on each loop. It can easily be completed within the 1-hour time limit. The course is a mixture of gravel and dirt tracks.
