River-Run Backyard Ultra

Mitchell Street, Waipukurau

The backyard ultra format is consistent across the globe. A 6.7km loop is run on the hour, every hour until the last person is left.

We are running a 'normal' backyard ultra for those wanting to find their limits and 'go long'.

We are also running a family-friendly and all-abilities event allowing people to start and stop or run as a team throughout the day.

We also have a kids event at 1pm where kids can run a shorter loop, every 10 minutes for 1hr.

The course is flat and beautiful, meandering alongside the Tukituki river on a mix of limestone and dirt single trails.

Running starts at 9am Saturday 28th October and will finish when the last person has had enough.

The family event will be confined to the 24hrs between 9am Saturday 28th and 9am Sunday 29th.

Haere mai!
