Race Day Information


Come out and camp! 


Come out to Spicer Ranch and soak up the perfect fall weather in Beatty, NV this October. Hang with your friends, drink some beer, & run some miles at what is quickly becoming a popular format for long distance runners.   


A $10 dollar donation to our host David Spicer will get you a pass to camp all weekend. You’ll also receive some home cooked food from the Spicers. 

Competitors in Beatty's Backyard Ultra are not required to donate $10 bucks to Spicer, but they are encouraged to donate something! 

Race Start & cutoff

Course Description

6706 Meters

Miles: 4.167 (rounded up)


When the gun goes off at 7 am each competitor must run 6706  meters (4.167 miles) around Spicer Ranch and return to the start/finish area before the end of that hour. Should a runner not make it back before the end of that hour the runner is DNF'd from the race. The remaining competitors will then continue their next lap at the top of the next hour, completing the same 4.167 mile loop. The runners will continue to run the 4.167 mile loop every hour on the hour until everyone either drops out by not returning to the start/finish area before the end of that hour or decides to stop running. 

Expect to gain around 400 feet for each loop as you wind your way through Spicer Ranch, through pastures and up foot hills before descending back down to the start finish area.
