The Lone Wolf

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 are available. With plenty of space to set up a tent and hunker down for a great day(s) in the Den.

WHAT IS A BACKYARD ULTRA?
A simple, fun, looped race. But with a catch. Racers start together on the hour as a pack, needing to finish the loop within the hour. As when the next hour strikes, the race starts again, in the opposite direction. The goal? To complete as many loops as you can.

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 (Lone Wolf) or 2-person 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 they 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.

THE T’REX FASTEST LAP AWARD
To honour Troy Misseghers and in memory of Troy and Andrew’s 2019 Lone Wolf “sprint”, on Lap #5 we’ll have a speed lap, with an extra special award 💜

SUPPORTING ELK VALLEY PRIDE
Thanks to our main sponsor, Fernie Brewing Co., every racer will receive a finish line FBC beer (or LOGO non-alc). We’ll also be selling beer, with profits going to the Fernie Pride Society, as part of the Elk Valley Pride Festival running September 18-22, 2024 🏳️‍🌈

So, think you can outrun the pack and become The Lone Wolf?
