An 8’4” Mythical Man once found in the Wilderness of the Great South Western Bushlands of Australia.
When Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra was created, little did Lazarus Lake know at how phenomenal the worldwide following would be to witness runners tackle a 6.71klm loop over and over again until the last one standing.
There is only 1 winner. Everyone else is guaranteed a DNF. A DID NOT FINISH. If you are not at the starting Corral at the start of each hour, every hour, you dnf. Keep going until you drop. A mentally and physically challenging concept like no other. An ultra format like no other.
And yet here we are, our own World Championship affiliated backyard ultra, right here in Western Australia. A 6.71klm loop around Lake Towerinning and respectfully titled after the Mythical legend in Big Birdy.
Welcome to Birdy’s Backyard Ultra.
