WELCOME TO THE DEN Our popular Lone Wolf Backyard Ultra returns for 2024. With a few changes. Situated at the beautiful Elk Valley Nordic Centre, offering a great place to start, finish and (for all but one), DNF. A simple aid station, plus washrooms will be available, along with plenty of space to set up a tent and hunker down for a great day(s) in the Den. THE LONE WOLF Our Backyard Ultra (aka Last Racer Standing), takes place on a beautiful, single track 6.64km washing-machine style loop, with 198m of vert/descent. Yes, this is harder than pretty much all other Backyard Ultras, so pacing and tactics will play a huge part as the day goes on and the trail catches up with you. WOLVES + COYOTES Unlike other Last Racer Standing formats, The Lone Wolf is broken into Solo (Wolves) or Teams (Coyotes). We offer teams to make it a super fun, all-inclusive race, giving grassroots runners and kids the opportunity to toe the line (as many times as you can). Lap times, gender and age don’t come into play, just the greatest number of laps win. With only one outright winner (The Lone Wolf), there’s no second place, just a big ol’ DNF for most of you. So, think you can outrun the pack and become The Lone Wolf?
