YOUR FIRST STEP TO TEST YOUR LIMITS!

ENTRIES ARE LIMITED TO 77 BACKYARD ULTRA RUNNERS & 77 RELAY TEAMS

ENTRIES OPEN LATE OCTOBER

Please read the information below before entering.

Click on the Enter Now buttons to enter – you’ll be taken to our entry system (EventPlus) and if you’ve used that system to enter any event before, you’ll simply have to log in and select which events you want to enter.

Yes, you can enter a team of three or five, but it would fall into the 4 person category or 6 person category for results.   To do this select either 4 person team or 6 person team on the first part of the entry process and only fill in only three or five lots of details.  Then  use the promo code THREE or FIVE at the checkout and it will discount to zero the 4th person or 6th person so you only pay for 3 or 5 people.

If you are entering a relay team and don’t know all the team members names yet – just enter the correct number of people you will have in your team and put tbc in the name fields.
