Before you enter Blended's Backyard Ultra

Brought to you by Blended Trails and set on stunning trails within private land at Chiltern Manor Farm in The Candovers, The Blended Backyard is perfect for seasoned trail runners, ultra runners and those looking to push the boundaries of personal achievement.

What is a Backyard Ultra?

Developed by Gary ‘Lazarus Lake’ Cantrell, the founder of the infamous Barkley Marathons, entrants are required to complete consecutive loops of exactly 6,706m (4 miles, 880ft) in less than one hour. The race finishes when only one runner remains to complete a lap.

Each new loop starts precisely one hour after the last. This race is open-ended. All entrants except the last runner to complete a lap are considered DNF. Time remaining after a lap is used to refuel and recover before the next one starts.

When is it?

Blendeds Backyard takes place Saturday 8th June 2024.

About Blended's Backyard Ultra

The trail route loop starts and finishes on the north side of Godsfield Copse and tracks through a meadow, to the trig point on Bugmore Hill, and through awesome woodland trails. It’s a stunning and challenging loop.

Crafted with the best experience for you in mind, our event camp is neatly tucked into the edge of Godsfield Copse with reaching views over the rolling rural Hampshire landscape. This is a weekend to be at one with nature and dig deep, draw on your training and run, rest, repeat.

As passionate trail runners, and experienced race directors, we’re buzzing to share the ultimate backyard ultra weekend with you.

Event merch designs will be shared on social, and added to our website and available for purchase before the event. We'll keep you up to date.
