The Backyard Classic is an 8-hour endurance run taking place on the new trails in the Elizabethtown Nature Park. You can tackle this solo or on a 2-person team.  It will take place on a looped course, 3.25 miles long. The objective is to have fun and cover as many laps as you can.

Important Note:
On-course hydration is REQUIRED. This loop will only have 3-4 aid stations, but you must have a refillable hydration container on you at all times while running. Remember, this ain't December.

There will be a post-race celebration at Flywheel Brewing. Expect some great beer, food trucks and fun fellowship with your fellow runners and their families!
