Persistence Backyard Ultra
July 29 @ 7:00 pm - July 31 @ 7:00 am EDT
Do you have enough persistence to be the Last One Standing? Find out during the Persistence Backyard Ultra. The Persistence Backyard Ultra is an official affiliated race of Big Dog’s Backyard Ultra, Ontario’s only Silver Ticket Race. This means that the winner of the race will qualify directly to the Canadian National Backyard Ultra Team.
The backyard will take place at the Eco Park located just outside of the northeast corner of London. The course will be made up of a smaller circuit, of approximately 3.36 kilometres which runners must complete two times consecutively within the hour to make up the required 6.706 kilometre loop. The course is very runnable, consisting of a crushed stone trail, some grass, and a dirtroad. Participants are always close to Race HQ, making this a great race for those tackling a new distance.
As with all of our events, $5 from each registration will be donated to the Children’s Health Foundation in support of children and their families in our community.
