Results for the 2021 version of the run are now linked here.
Thanks to all the runners for surviving the many storms this year! Four of you bailed off the middle of the course and I'm certain that was the right decision for the conditions you were personally facing.
Special thanks to all the volunteers this year: Sharon Kuhn, Rex Winterbottom, Jouelle LaForme, and Allie LaForme. In addition, a lot of crew and dropped runners effectively became extra volunteers during the run.
We have a new course record by Luke Gangi-Wellman, whose time of 13:51 shaved 19 minutes off of Christof Teuscher's previous mark. Not bad for your first ever running event on what was arguably a slightly slower course!
For next year's event, we'll probably not set a date until we get a feel for how the winter is progressing. So in February or so, we'll probably announce a June or July date. And we'll possibly tweak the course a bit more, maybe give some of you that haven't seen Bear and Sultan yet a chance to do so.
It's most likely that our future free events, including Cappis, will require club membership to help cover insurance and stuff. This should be a fairly small cost, around $15-$18 per household per year. For that, you can enter any number of our free events (including the Sneffels Round), and receive a discount on fee-based events.
For those of you interested in the Sneffels Round on August 21, stay tuned for an update later this week.
P.S.: The reason you can't find the 2021 results on Ultrasignup is because they no longer allow us to load results for events with less than 10 finishers.
The 2021 Backyard Ultra is scheduled for September 4. The registration link is here.
For those of you that want to roll your prior entry over to this date, please email us and ask for your credit to be applied
