Three minutes before the top of the hour, three whistles will blow. Get ready.

Two minutes before the top of the hour, two whistles will blow. It's time.

One minute before the top of the hour, one whistle will blow. If you aren't in the starting chute yet, best better make your way.

When the bell rings at the start of the hour, all runners must be present, ready to go and in the starting chute. If you are not in the starting chute and do not start when the bell rings, you are disqualified.

When one runner remains, they will complete one more loop, a last loop, to be named the BC Backyard Ultra Winner and receive SILVER TICKET.

There is only one winner; all other participants will DNF (did not finish).

Except for restrooms, racers are not permitted to leave the course until each loop is completed.

No non-competitors on the course (including eliminated runners).

Aid, pacers, crew, etc are not permitted on course (event aid will be available).

No artificial aids (including poles).

Slower runners must allow passes.


BC Backyard Ultra, hosted by Lewiston Ultra Events is inspired by community and time spent with mastermind, Lazarus Lake.

The Backyard format is inclusive and allows participants the chance to run with community, set a personal record, lean in to support & challenge each other, experience an ultra that brings you back to home base over & over again and encourages you to dig deep, push yourself and of course, chase the SILVER TICKET.

BC Backyard Ultra gives back to Love For Lewiston, Shuswap Trail Alliance, charity of choice (to be decided annually by registered participants) & other community/volunteer organizations and shareholders.
