Description:

The Mountain Lakes Backyard Ultra, presented by Steep Endurance, is a true test of ones endurance, persistence, and discipline. The premise is quite simple. Can you run 4.166666 miles in ONE hour? And do it again and again and again….until you are the LAST RUNNER STANDING! **For additional details please see the race rules/format section about 2/3 of the way down the page.

The Mountain Lakes Backyard Ultra is one of 7 (and the only one in the Northeast) affiliated North American qualifying races for Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra (organized by none other than Lazarus Lake of Barkley Marathons fame) of which 2 winners (those with the longest distances) from those 7 races will receive a “golden ticket” (just like in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) to go to Laz’s race on October 19, 2019 in Bell Buckle, Tennessee. The Mountain Lakes Backyard Ultra has two different courses in staying with the theme of the event. The Day Loop consists of about a 50/50 mix of carriage roads and trails with approximately 450′ of elevation change. The majority of the uphill elevation is in the first mile of the course (which is almost entirely on road/carriage road) and not technical at all. There is a trail section for about 1.5 miles in the middle of the loop that only has a few technical spots, but is otherwise fairly smooth and another short trail section near the end of the loop.

The night loop is a simple out and back on road/carriage roads completely inside the park. The course has approximately 500′ of elevation change and is not technical at all.
