Escape the heat and join us at our beautiful venue for the inaugural Ode to Laz Ultra event. This will follow the traditional theme of Lazarus Lake’s original Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra. At 9:00 a.m. contestants start a 4.167 mile trail route. Repeat as long as you wish. Be standing at the start line every hour to continue the race and complete your next lap. At 9:00 p.m. we switch to a paved closed park road, then back to the trail again at 9:00 a.m. Complete each lap within the hour, with no outside assistance. The “last runner standing” to complete one more lap than all other contestants wins!
