663. Backyard Ultra Advice | Andy Noise Experience
All ultra running involves racing strategy. There is probably more strategy in this format than traditional formats. Runners can complete loops as quickly or as slowly as they desire. There are no points for finishing the loop the quickest. There appears to be a trade-off between loop speed and resting time at the start/finish. Runners need time in between loops to take care of themselves, use the bathroom, sleep (maybe?). But they also do not want to overly exert themselves by running a lap too fast.
In this year’s field the average loop time spent on the course each lap was 51 minutes and 42 seconds
Stay Healthy. Be Boring. Not Epic.
