After the raging success and incredibly sought after entries for Birdy’s Backyard, you crazy buggers have backed us into the corner and forced us to bring you a sister event. And this time it is in our Frontyard in the Heart of Perth at Herdsman Lake, Herdy’s Frontyard Ultra – Last One Standing.

An incredible spectacle for runners, crew, volunteers and spectators alike, the Backyard Ultra format is an extreme form of ultra marathon running.

Runners tackle a 6.71k loop on the hour, every hour until all but 1 runner is left. Once all except the last runner fails to complete a lap within cut off, the final competitor must then complete a solo lap within cut off to be crowned the winner. If they fail to complete the lap within cut off, they will be a DNF or like we say at Herdy’s Frontyard, they’ll be “Given The Boot”.

So if you like the prospects of a 99.97% chance of a DNF and receiving the black DNF boot as your prize, then this is the event for you.

Or do you fancy your chances at winning the Golden Boot??
