In the "USA Backyard Ultra Bracket" there are 6 Bronze Ticket Races; the winner of each Bronze Ticket race will be invited to run at Ohio's Backyard Ultra for a chance to earn a slot into Big's Backyard Ultra.

The 2022 "World Team Competition" Affiliation: The winner from the 2022 Ohio's Backyard Ultra will win a Silver Ticket and make it to "World Team Competition" at Big's.
The 2023 "World Individual Championship" Affiliation: In 2023 Big's will serve as the "World Individual Championship." From Laz, this is how runners make it to the field of 75 at the "World Individual Championship":
The top 50 winners of the national championships (in 2022) will secure berths at the World Individual Championships to be held at Big Dog’s Backyard starting October 15, 2023. In addition to those champions, there will be an additional 25 runners selected from the At-Large list… the top performances of the previous 2 year qualifying period (August 16, 2021 to August 15, 2023).
This means that there is no "Silver Ticket" race (like OBU) that will have an automatic entry into the World Individual Championship at Big's in 2023. To make this field, runners must be high up on the At-Large list from all the backyard affiliated races. With OBU being a Silver Ticket race, we believe it provides a highly competitive field for the best opportunity to be high on the at-large list of backyard results.
