Babbitt's Backyard Ultra
We will start the race at 0600AM after the bell gong. You will have a three whistle alert three minutes from the start, two whistle and one whistle at one minute from the start. You have one hour to run 4.167 miles.
The race will be held at the iconic SP Crater. A combination of dirt trails and road with approximately 150ft of elevation gain and stunning views of the crater and the Peaks.
You have to be back on the starting corral for 0700 to complete the trail again and so on every hour thereafter until only one runner is left able to complete the trail
* Have you ever wondered what you are capable of?
* Do you want to test your limits?
* Have you ever thought you weren’t fast enough to compete with the best?
