The Backland is the biggest last man standing trail race near the Texas and Oklahoma border. This race shows who really wants it. Gun goes off at 9:00 am; Packet pickup is from 7:00 am - 9:00 am

Runners have 1 hour to complete a 5 mile loop. Every hour the gun will go off to start the new loop. If you finish the loop in an hour, you wait for the gun to go off again before you continue. If you don't finish within 1 hour you're out. The last man (or woman) standing wins a trophy and a six-pack of beer (rootbeer if under 21).
