Maribyrnong Valley Park Backyard Ultra

Fri 5th - Sun 7th Feb 2021

Every hour, on the hour, 6.7km course

You decide how far



The Maribyrnong Valley Park Backyard Ultra has been registered with the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions (DJPR) as a Tier 3 Covid Safe public event.

MVP Covid-Safe Public Event Registration

How about this – the only race format where you don’t have to be fast to win.  You just need to complete the 6.7km course within an hour – HOUR AFTER HOUR.

And after every hour, those still participating are all tied for first place.  It’s all about management, not speed.

Are you strong minded, perhaps described as stubborn?  You just might be the Last One Standing, THE WINNER!

There are no second places!!
