Welcome to Conquer The Coast Backyard Ultra

The Backyard Ultra is the brainchild of Lazarus Lake, race director of Barkley Marathon USA.


Conquer The Coast is a registered Backyard Ultra


The concept is simple, you start on the hour every hour and have to run and complete a 4.167 mile trail route in that time.

You must run the loop and be back ready to start the next loop or you are out, the race continues until there is only one person who has completed a solo loop within the hour. 


We welcome entries for the singles race and team races. Both will be competing to complete the furthest distances possible. The team distance will be an accumulation of the teams members distances while all members meeting the race rules.


They are the Winner of the Conquer The Coast Back Yard Ultra


This format is hugely successful all over the world and originated in the USA.
