I first applied for a spot to run at Big’s Backyard Ultra on 3 November 2018. I finally secured my spot at THE backyard race of backyard races after running 254.167 miles straight in just under 62 hours at my most recent race, Capital Backyard Ultra. It’s all still a bit surreal that I’ve finally achieved a goal I set for myself nearly four years ago. It was a long, challenging path that tested me, but that’s the purpose of goals: to motivate ourselves and to make us the best version of ourselves possible.
Capital Backyard Ultra was everything a backyard race should be: well organized, community orientated, and lots of fun. If you want to earn a spot to run at Big's or if you just want to test your limits, Capital Backyard Ultra is a great way to achieve either!
