Run On Trails brings you Faccombe Backyard Ultra. A last person standing event with NO FINISH TIME JUST ONE FINISHER.

Every hour, on the hour participants must start and complete a 4.1 mile loop. If you don’t start or are late or don’t finish a loop within the hour then your race is over. The quicker you complete a loop the longer you get to rest, but go out too quick and you WILL BURN YOURSELF OUT. Careful planning is the key. The winner MUST complete one solo lap.
