Welcome to the 5th annual More Miles Last One Standing Challenge!
An official backyard race consists of a course measuring 4.167miles (this is "the yard"). Participants begin the race ON the designated hour, and must finish their yard before the hour is up. Those who do, continue into the next hour - completing one yard every hour, on the hour, for AS LONG AS THEY CAN!
Event's current local time: 6:03 PM ET
This is a "last one standing" style event - the winner (technically, the only one who FINISHES the race) is the last person capable of completing the yard within the hour. The race ends when only one remains.
The More Miles Last One Standing Challenge offers an official 4.167mile event, that is a qualifier event for the Backyard Ultra world championship - as well as a 1-mile "backyard for mortals", run under the same format!
The 1-mile is a great event for those looking to get their feet wet at a lower intensity, kids, teens, ultra-curious, and even walkers! This is where the party happens, with a little extra time between laps around the mini-yard!
Our 1-mile event runs for 26 hours, and then begins a tie-breaker protocol whereby each additional hour adds one additional mile, until only one participant remains!
You can complete 1 hour and stop, or continue forward every hour to compete for THE Last One Standing title.
