Welcome to India Backyard Ultra, we are the only Golden Ticket event in India till date which is affiliated to Big Dog’s backyard Ultra World Championship. As you know it, if you know it, the concept of race is simple. It’s a “Last Man Standing Race” and in the end, just one runner will finish the race. All other runners are a DNF.
Every hour, another loop, until only one runner is left standing. That’s all there is to the India’s Backyard Ultra.
Inspired by the idea of the most infamous man in history of Ultrarunning, Gary “Lazarus Lake” Cantrell, the race director of the World’s Toughest “The Barkley Marathons”, The India Backyard Ultra’s second edition will Start at the sunrise hour, 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 30, 2021. Runners will set off on the 4.166667 mile Big Trail in Gurgaon, Haryana, INDIA. To continue, runners must complete the loop within 60 minutes and be ready to go before the clock starts for the ensuing hour-long loop. This will continue through the days and nights, sun or rain, until only one runner has the will to go on.
