The bell will ring at the second annual BC Backyard Ultra, hosted by Lewiston Ultra Events on Friday, April 28, 2023. This is an approved SILVER TICKET event in support of the Canadian Championship (every other year) and Big’s Backyard Ultra World Championship.

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. Take a deep breath & smile.

One minute before the top of the hour, one whistle will blow. Time to make your way to the starting chute.

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, a victory loop.

Hosted in the gorgeous Shuswap, British Columbia, the BC Backyard Ultra 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 and over again and encourages you to dig deep and push yourself until you meet your own finish line.

The BC Backyard Ultra is capped at 100 participants; there is no waitlist.

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