Bring your spikes and a smile, we'll bring the coffee and soup.

Run up to 8 laps of the famous Ode to Laz 4.167 mile trail loop, starting each hour "Backyard Style", or run continuous as far as you can in 8 hours.
Would you like a discount? Runners and volunteers of the July 2020 Ode to Laz Backyard Ultra get $20 off. Volunteer or sign up first!
If you want to try the "Backyard" format, and then switch to continuous, feel free.
This is a great way to simulate the Ode to Laz as a tune up or just any distance you choose at your own pace on the great Ode course!
The last lap time is coordinated with the dusk conditions you will experience on the last day trail lap at the July 18th Ode to Laz race.
