What: The Backyard Classic is an 8 hour endurance run. You can participate in the BYC as an individual or as a part of a 2-person relay team. The course is a 3.25 mile loop, so you can set up a home base with your nutrition, some shade or a place to relax between loops. The objective of the race is to run as many loops as you can or want to in 8 hours. You are considered a finisher if you complete just one loop. We have a special award for those that reach an ultra distance (10 laps) during the 8 hours. Overall race awards are given to the top 3 female solo runners, top 3 male solo runners as well as the top 3 teams. These are based on distance (number of loops) completed in 8 hours. There will be a post-race party at one of our sponsors, Flywheel Brewing, after the race. All participants, families and BYC supporters are invited to attend!
