A shorter version of the Backyard Ultra style race. Compete as an individual, in a pair or a team of 4. The race is part of the GB 12hr Backyard Ultra Series. Sign up to take part in our new 12 hour Backyard style ultra run. We could all do with something to look forward to right now, so why not get involved in this new running challenge to give you a positive goal to work towards?

Based on the Backyard Ultra race format, the Chillington 12 is a true test of running endurance, skill and tactics. When the race starts at 9am, competitors have up to one hour to complete the 6.7km trail lap and be back ready to start the next lap, which begins exactly one hour later. The race continues for a maximum of 12 laps. If a runner misses the cut off time, they are eliminated from the race. If there is only one runner left on course for the final lap they must complete the route in under an hour to be crowned the winner. If there is more than one runner left for the final lap the winner is the first over the line on that final circuit. Anyone that completes all 12 laps will have covered 80km/50miles.

This event is a great challenge for a wide range of runners. The lapped format means that a Backyard style run is a great way for people to get into longer distance running. You have the chance to take breaks, change kit, top up on supplies to help get you through the distance. You are also free to set you own pace and set your own goals and you can stop at any time. It doesn't matter if you're eyeing victory or if you just want to achieve a certain distance.
