Long Island has a rich and deep running culture. There are multiple events every weekend to choose from. However, runners that enjoy longer race distances or trail events have only a few options to choose from over the course of the entire year. This event will provide an opportunity for those that enjoy ultra or trail running to participate in a unique event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference, who help maintain the trails on Long Island.
A backyard ultra is not a race to see who is the fastest but see who can endure the longest. Participants will run 4.167 miles every hour on the hour, but will be required to drop out if they cannot complete the distance in that time period. The final competitor to be able to complete a full loop will be declared the winner.
