Potch Big Backyard Ultra
September 2021 Edition
For the this edition of the PBBU we have changed the format. The race will have two starting times:
- 10pm on 10 September 2021.
- 7am on 11 September 2021 (including kiddies race).
The 10pm race is for runners wanting to run long and/or get some night running training in. The 7am race is typically for those wanting to run less than 7 yards.
Kids of all ages are welcome to join from the 7am start. For the under 13s we have a 3,34km yard. Over 13s can run the normal yard.
Although you are welcome to run the race as an individual, we are also introducing a team event. Teams consists of 4 runners: 2 male and 2 female. Runners run as individuals but yards for the team are cumulative. The team's yards stop accumulating when only one runner of the team is left (last individual yard counts as the last yard for the team). Team members can start either 10pm or 7am. But BEWARE! If a 10pm starter cannot see it through to 7am then only those yards will count for the team. Strategise carefully!
The team event is also a wonderful way for businesses or friends to challenge each other!
