Registration Full. 已額滿。

This is the Purest Challenge of Mental Toughness


Running 6.706km in one hour is not too difficult. Most runners can do it no problem. But are you willing to run 6.706km in one hour over and over and over again? This race takes speed out of the equation, and put your mental game on trial. Come test your mettle, if you dare.

一小時跑 6.706公里並不困難,大部份的跑者都可以做到。但是你願意一次又一次再一次用一小時跑完 6.706公里嗎?速度並不重要,心肺體能不是重點,就看你有沒有勇氣再出發跑一圈,徹徹底底將意志力推至邊緣,你有這份氣魄嗎!?!


What is Backyard Ultra?

Backyard Ultra is a form of ultramarathon where runners must consecutively run the distance of 6.706km (4.167 miles) 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.

On January 14th, 2023, 7:00am sharp, the race is coming to Taipei. We’ve prepared a race that has a bit of riverside and a bit of trail to keep it interesting。

Backyard Ultra 是一場超級馬拉松活動,跑者們必須一次又一次以一小時完成一圈 6.706公里 (4.167英里)的路線。跑完一圈後回到會場,好好恢復,每一個小時整點再出發。2023年1月14日 早上7:00,Backyard Ultra 將來到台北,路線將包含河濱步道與土徑。

Taipei Backyard Ultra Details

台北 Backyard Ultra 資訊

We’ve tried to limit the elevation of the 6.71km-loop (4.1667 mile) while still providing a course that is pleasing to the eyes. You’ll be running on paved and dirt trail with a few hills and over a lovely pedestrian bridge.

我們盡力把可跑性提升(減少爬升)同時設計一條結合天然地形的 6.71公里路線。有柏油路、有土徑、有小坡還有美麗的行人天橋。


The event is organized by Runivore, hosts of Explore Your Backyard trail race series and Beat the Sunset endurance event. We’re very excited to bring together top endurance athletes from Taiwan and abroad.

由 Explore Your Backyard 與 Beat the Sunset 主辦 Runivore 為大家引進一場獨一無二的耐力和意志力挑戰,邀請國內外的耐力好手共襄盛舉。

We plan on growing this event so that the winners can qualify for regional and global championships.

The rules are simple.

1. Runners will run the 6.71 kilometer (4.1667 mile) loop every hour until just one person is standing.

2. Once the loop starts, you have one hour to complete it. You can run it in 30 minutes or 59 minutes…but that’s not the point.

3. If you finish early, you have a bit of time to rest and refuel.

4. You just must be in the start corral when the next hour starts. if you’re not, you are eliminated.

5. If you do not finish within the hour, you are eliminated from the race.



1. 以一小時跑完 一圈 6.71公里,直到剩下最後一位跑者為止。

2. 每圈計時開始後,跑者必須在一小時內回到會場,你可用30分鐘或59分鐘完成,但速度不是重點。

3. 跑完一圈回到會場,可以利用剩下的時間休息、補給。

4. 每小時的整點,你必須站在起跑線上。如果不在場,則會被淘汰。

5. 如過在一小時內無法完成一圈,也會遭到淘汰。

What’s the Course Like for the Taipei Backyard Ultra


The venue for the event is at Xisheng Huanbao Riverside Park 西盛環保河濱公園 , it’s a riverside park that’s open 24 hours per day (that’s key). The course is just a tad over the required 6.71 km, here’s the Strava record:

Here are some pics from the course:
