Outrun Backyard Ultra 2019 is an inaugural race held in support of the Rare Disease Foundation. This event will be held at 10 am on June 21, 2019 (Summer Solstice) in beautiful West Bragg Creek AB, Canada only 45 SW of Calgary. This race mimics the race style of Lazarus Lake's Big Dogs Backyard Ultra held in Bell Buckle Tennessee every October.
It's a 6.71km/4.18mile looped double track cross country skiing trail course with rolling hills. Each loop will be 120 meters of elevation. Competitors will be given 1 hour to complete the race course. Upon start and completion each runner must step over the start/finish line before recieving aid. Once a runner is out on the course absolutely no aid/support can be given to any racer. In between the time that a runner steps past the finish line and the horn is sounded starting the next lap what he/she decides to do with their time is completely up to them.
