Come walk with us!

As a pedestrian, I could never compete in a Backyard Ultra because doing 4.167 mph is a daunting task. Heck less than 100 individuals have walked 100 miles in under 24 hours (Centurion) which is 4.167 mph. This past summer I watched Anthony Culpepper and Yolanda Holder become only the 93 and 94th to do it since 1878! So you can see how a walker would not last very long in a traditional Backyard Ultra.
