Last Hejazi Standing
“Last Hejazi Standing”: a Backyard Ultra | Just one more loop affiliated event
Backyard Ultra is a form of ultramarathon race where competitors must consecutively run a distance of 6706 meters in less than one hour. When each lap is completed, the remaining time within the hour is typically used to recover for the next hour’s race.
Can you run 6.7km in 1h? Then you qualify to start the race. We’ll see how stubborn you are and how long you can continue this stunt for.
We will start running at 07:00 AM. Each lap will start every hour on the hour. Until there is only one Last Hejazi Standing.
There will be only one female and one male winner. There is no room for second place. no such thing as a one-before-last Hejazi Standing.
It is a cruel run. You will discover how far you can push your limits: You will need to manage your pace. The fastest runner will not win. The most tenacious will.
As Lazarus “Laz” Lake mentioned about the Backyard Ultras: “if we did this to dogs, they would throw us in jail.“
